Nikon Australia is pleased to announce the launch of a new image sharing and storage space, “NIKON IMAGE SPACE”, now available at: http://nikonimagespace.com
“NIKON IMAGE SPACE” is a free online service for sharing images, available not only to Nikon digital camera users, but anyone who enjoys taking photos or recording movies. This service makes it easy for camera enthusiasts to upload, view, organise, and share their photos and movies of once-‐in-‐a-‐lifetime moments with greater convenience.
Nikon’s previous image sharing and storage service, My Picturetown, had been available to users around the world since August 2007. However, with a complete overhaul of the service, Nikon is taking this opportunity to change the name from My Picturetown to “NIKON IMAGE SPACE.”*
Nikon will continue to offer users ways to enjoy their digital images through the improved “NIKON IMAGE SPACE”.
”NIKON IMAGE SPACE” primary features:
1. Two types of free accounts
“NIKON IMAGE SPACE” offers users a choice between two types of free accounts. The Basic account is available to anyone, while users of Nikon digital cameras have the additional option of upgrading to a Special account using a dedicated application to verify Nikon digital cameras. While both types of accounts are free of charge, the maximum storage space is 2 GB for Basic accounts and 20 GB for Special accounts. Special accounts also offer more advanced functions, including the ability to apply a password when sharing images, and restrict image downloads.
2. Improved usability
Significant changes in window design make sequential image operations such as uploading, viewing, organising and sharing smoother. In addition, a relaxing background colour has been adopted for a more pleasing image display, and image layout has been adjusted for ease of use.
3. Greater performance as a Web system
Operation has been improved with faster system processing capabilities that allow a smoother, more natural operation of “NIKON IMAGE SPACE,” with faster image upload and download, as well as faster response when images are manipulated.
4. Greater collaboration with social networking sites
Greater collaboration with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter expand the possibilities of sharing photos and make posting images from “NIKON IMAGE SPACE” easier than ever.
