Smith Micro Software Announces Free Photo A.K.A. For Easy Image Management

Feb 23, 2010
Photo A.K.A. Enables Mac Users to Easily Manage Groups of Photos and Share Them Via Flickr and Picasa

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Productivity and Graphics Group today announced Photo A.K.A. ™, a free image management tool that allows photo enthusiasts to easily simultaneously rename groups of photos being transferred from digital cameras. Photo A.K.A also simplifies the process of archiving photos and sharing them through Flickr™ or Picasa™ web services.

Digital cameras capture life's special moments, but over time the thousands of photos saved become difficult to find and share when they are needed. As a free standalone product that integrates with the Smith Micro Spring Cleaning solution, Photo A.K.A. is a versatile application that lets users easily manage their photos , enabling batch renaming, burning to physical media, archiving, emailing and sharing over popular web services.

"Photos being transferred from your camera to your computer automatically receive cryptic file names that make them impossible to search intuitively," said Pauline Shumake, Senior Product Manager of Productivity and Graphics at Smith Micro Software. "Photo A.K.A. lets users rename groups of photos with logical, searchable names that reflect the content of the photos or a preferred naming convention, thereby saving users valuable time and energy by eliminating the hassle of searching for photos from months or even years ago!"

Key Features of Photo A.K.A.:

  • Rename Multiple Photos Simultaneously - Ability to automatically rename a group of images or any files before importing into a photo library
