Picture Project Original Press Release
2004. Press Release: TOKYO -
Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce PictureProject, the first entry
of a new software strategy aimed at earning the same accolades for Nikon
software as received for its world-famous lineup of cameras.
Software is a key component
of the digital photography experience, and a key component of Nikon's
Total Imaging System. Determined to deliver the best tools and best user
interface for digital camera users, Nikon conducted a worldwide survey
of customer expectations, requirements and work habits before beginning
development of Nikon PictureProject. Building an entirely new software
architecture that empowers all customers to get the most out of their
digital cameras demanded powerful features be wrapped into an interface
that is easy to master. It also called for advanced programming that will
allow for the addition of new features as the market evolves.
PictureProject is now
ready to deliver the fruits of the intensive development and usability
testing that mark Nikon's new software path for the future. The intuitive
interface is designed to make users feel comfortable with all features
within minutes, and to provide instant access to all stored images without
having to search through hard disk directories.
features of Nikon Picture Project
- Image files are automatically
imported when a camera is connected to the user's computer, and thumbnail
images make it easy to confirm the memory card's contents.
- A single main window
divided into three sections serves as the center of all operations.
- Only the window's
center section changes when switching modes for an integrated and intuitive
interface that minimizes the steps needed to accomplish all tasks.
- Buttons permanently
placed along the top of the main window assure quick access to oft-used
functions, such as Mail, Slideshow, Auto Enhance, etc.
- Drag-and-drop images
to organize them into "collections" that can be easily accessed.
- View all stored images,
only those from the last batch imported, or from individual collections.
- Locate any file quickly
by name, keyword, captured or modified date, etc.
editing tools help achieve the desired effect or finish quickly.
- Any and all changes
made to images can be reset or modified as many times as desired without
affecting the original image file.
- Slideshows can include
background music for added ambience.
- Handy design templates
make it easy to attach images to email, or make beautiful prints.
- New pop-up messaging
service delivers software update notifications, and provides access
for technical tips and other information.
new software architecture is built to include robust future expandability.
Plans include offering users the option to purchase plug-in software
that adds darkroom, filter and other effects, and that all operate
within the familiar PictureProject interface.
will appeal to users of any digital camera, although initial plans
are to offer it exclusively to Nikon digital camera users. Beginning
this spring, it will be included with newly released Nikon digital
cameras, not merely as a complimentary offering, but as a powerful
tool that adds value and enjoyment to digital photography.
Signaling Nikon's intention
to expand and further strengthen its software portfolio with add-on tools
and higher-function products to come, PictureProject is about to change
the digital photography experience.
