Touch up and archive your photos

Jasc offers both beginning and advanced digital photo­graphers an easy way to organise their photos with its new Paint Shop Photo Album 5 Deluxe. The program's simple, Windows Explorer-like interface and its easy-to-decipher toolbar let every member of the family organise their photos so that they all can find and enjoy their images.

To import photos from your digital camera (or memory card reader), you just click the Camera button. You can use the batch command to rename and resize entire folders full of images in a few clicks. The software lets you assign your own keywords to photos and their folders, which makes for easy cross-referencing. An intuitive file tree helps you find images anywhere they reside on your computer.

The clean interface allows you to toggle among keyword, calendar, and folder views. Version 5 also offers PhotoSafe, which archives your pictures to ensure that you never lose a precious image. Working with your own reminder settings (based on adjustable parameters such as the time elapsed or file size), PhotoSafe warns you when it's time to back up your photos.

In addition, Jasc throws in some basic image editing features such as red-eye reduction and a pano­rama maker. Although no substitute for real image editing software, the extras easily handle basic fixes.

Paint Shop Photo Album 5 Deluxe has an intuitive interface and powerful organisational capabilities. Throw in extras like archiving and you have an excellent program.

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

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
