<p>“With ever-expanding digital lifestyles, and increasing use of digital cameras and cell phones for capturing still images, more and more people are looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to manage their growing collection of digital images,” says Dave Chaimson, VP Marketing for Sony Media Software. “Whether it’s simple fixes, photo printing, or uploading and sharing, our new program provides a very easy way for experienced photo editors as well as people who have never used photo management software to get started right away. This is a great new product that will not only enhance the holiday season for many people, but also provide them with a way to get even more enjoyment out of their digital images for years to come.”</p>
<p>Photo Go software lets users instantly import photos from a digital camera or computer, and then displays them in the interface so users can browse, rotate, straighten and crop photos with built-in, easy-to-use editing tools.
