Two years after entering the photo organizers market, PicaJet has created quite a stir, with some folks calling it “Picasa killer” or “Swish Army Knife of photo albums”. But, all the hype aside, PicaJet’s success lies within a simple strategy on concentrating on few important features, rather trying to be many things to many people. As Gregory Anderson eloquently put it in his October 2004 article in Smart Computing, “unlike many other digital imaging programs, PicaJet focuses on doing one thing and doing it well.”
This year, in order to increase its market share, software developers introduced a free version of PicaJet.
The software imports photos from digital cameras, DVD, scanners or other programs and automatically organizes them according to the user-set parameters within seconds. It supports 3D-acceleration and offers basic search and editing features (cropping, resizing, etc.). Plus, users can use the free version to share images via e-mail, create web galleries or print the images.
Folks who would like more options and freedom to experiment with their photographs should opt for PicaJet 2.5 FX. The new version is 10 dollars more than the previous one, but the price hike is well justified by the number of features that have been added. For instance, the speed of importing images is now an impressive 200 photographs per second.
