Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006

Organising and editing your ever-growing collection of digital photos can be a daunting prospect, but Microsoft's Digital Image Suite 2006 simplifies the process. However, users of Digital Image Suite 10 (the package's predecessor), may notice little that is new, and no upgrade is available.

At the heart of the product is Digital Image Suite 2006 Library, which automatically indexes your images and allows you to use keywords and flags to categorise photos.

Digital Image Suite 2006 Editor includes a set of Auto Fix commands that enable you to make basic changes easily; even more-complex tasks require only a few steps. New in the 2006 version is an Intuitive Crop function that analyses your photo and suggests the best way to frame your subjects. It works well, and it allows you to make changes if you're not happy with the suggestion. Editor also gains support for RAW-format images captured by advanced digital cameras.

Digital Image Suite 2006 bundles Photo Story 3.1, which lets you combine photos with voice narration, background music, and transition effects to make professional-looking slide shows.

Verdict Digital Image Suite 2006 lacks the power and variety of competing packages such as Adobe Photoshop Elements and Corel Paint Shop Pro Studio. Still, its well suited for photographers who are ready to step up from basic bundled software.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
