Splashdata has released SplashPhoto 4.0 for Palm OS, Pocket PC, and Sony Ericsson P800 Smartphones. While SplashPhoto has long been available for Palm OS handhelds, this release marks the first appearance of the application on other platforms. SplashPhoto desktop is also included so that users can manage and synchronize their photos on a Windows desktop computer.
SplashPhoto Desktop features include the ability to create an unlimited number of categories to enhance photo organization, as well as compression and cropping tools designed to allow users to store more photos on their handheld that before. It is possible to control the rotation, brightness and contrast of each photo, and a single check box allows the user to quickly resize the photo to match the screen size and resolution of the handheld device.The SplashPhoto conduit gathers the necessary information from the user’s handheld device during synchronization.
The handheld application stores all images as JPG files, making it easier to share photos with others. Files can be transferred or shared by Bluetooth, infrared, or email, ensuring compatibility with handhelds, smartphones, and laptops. SplashPhoto has also been optimized for ARM processors, for near-instantaneous image display. The application also supports the built-in camera on the P800 and the Palm Zire 71. A special “pan and zoom” feature allows photos larger than the handheld screen to be viewed, and an optional slide show can be displayed while the handheld is charging in the cradle.
SplashPhoto is now available to new users for $29.95, while registered users may upgrade for $9.95. A free 30 day trial is also available. For more information or online purchase, please visit the SplashData web site.
