Here are some key features of "Picture Arena":
Â· Browse the file system
Â· Quickly browse your CDs and folders full of images without leaving a trail of thumbnail files behind.
Â· Import images and video clips from your digital camera, file system hierarchies or keep using or convert your existing iPhotoâ„¢ albums.
Â· Create web galleries
Â· Choose between numerous professional and varied themes, create online slideshows, interactive greeting cards, searchable databases - with just a few clicks.
Â· Burn CDs and DVDs
Â· Create cross platform HTML presentations and backups on CD or DVD or specially prepared CDs containing up to 9200 pictures for viewing on DVD players with just a few clicks. It was never easier to make one's personal photo archive portable, to present, protect and share it.
Â· Print greeting cards, contact sheets, attractive letter paper with a very special and personal touch or standard sizes with no effort.
Â· Reworking and effects
Â· Rework your images, add unique effects, create effect recipes and reuse them. And you don't even have to modify your original files. That's especially useful, if you have a lot of files on CDs, yet need powerful image processing.
Â· Navigate by speech and present
Â· Picture Arena cares about what you have to say. Say a command and it will act accordingly. But you can also "just" do a slideshow.
Â· Resynchronize your files
Â· At last! Finally, you can work on your images independent of network and servers - wherever you want. And then bring everything back in sync with just one click.
Â· Auto-rotate images from your digital camera? Powerful batch operations? Batch renaming with undo? Searching albums? Sorting images by the date they were taken? Sounds like you use Picture Arena.
Â· Even more reasons why you need Picture Arena
Â· Because of its intelligent EXIF support, for example. Or because it makes optimal use of multiprocessor systems, has a compact interface, knows exotic formats.
