PhotoAccess PC is a photo software package specifically designed for digital camera owners who take many, many photos. PhotoAccess PC is built around the premise that, since digital photos are nearly free, you want to gather, organize, and use many pictures - rather than just editing or "playing with" one or two photos. Pictures are information, and you need an easy way to acquire, store, edit, database, display, and export this digital information. Use the TWAIN compliant interface to acquire photos from digital cameras and scanners directly into the database gallery. Add any fields to the database and search, sort, and filter the photos in the gallery. Using PhotoAccess, you easily input photos from disk or from any TWAIN compliant camera directly into a user-defined database. The database records each contain a digital picture, plus any number of other numeric, text, and date fields. Using the gallery, any database can be sorted, searched, and filtered on any field. PhotoAccess databases are a single file, saving disk space and clutter, which can be easily copied and distributed. Other software can access these database files through the PhotoAccess programming interface. Photos can be exported, edited, or displayed on album pages. Return to the
