A new, allegedly revolutionary, photography product from Canadian software house MGI arrives next month in the shape of PhotoSuite II. MGI refuses to call the program picture editing software preferring 'PC photography software'.
The first, most notable revolution' lies in the product's front end which is built on Microsoft's IE4.0. Java scriplets and Dynamic HTML are used within the program which can launch IE4.0 without actually launching the browser. The browse functions are built into PhotoSuite.
Once you are online, the program allows you to drag images either to the editing area, or perhaps you'd like to add it to the cataloguing mode of the program (arguably its second revolutionary feature). This provides albums of neatly archived photos, pictures etc.
PhotoSuite II comes with more "far more" editing tools than its predecessor according to MGI as well as a slide show for fancy screen savers.
PhotoSuite II will be launched in September and is expected to cost £49.99
