Even though I’m not much of a photo person, I do manage my photos. Mostly just collecting-grouping-tagging-retouching (using iPhoto), and resizing (using now not free anymore ImageWell) to be able to easily send to my friend or use the image for my blog.

I also have a Flickr account but there was only 3 photos inside it. The reason: I personally thought that online photo management process was too troublesome for the happy-go-lucky-shoot-everything amateur photographer like me.

Then comes JetPhoto Studio, an all-in-one photo tool (available for Mac and Windows). This application is a bit unknown because developed by Chinese programmer. But unknown doesn’t mean bad because this app has tons of good features.

What’s Inside The JetPhoto?

Beside the standard image management tools such as making photo album, editing (automatic enhancing, black and white color effect, sepia color effect), resizing images in batches, archiving and backing up photos, importing (from camera, webcam, scanner, and other storage location); JetPhoto Studio enables user to organize photos by notes, keyword tags, camera status tags, time and geographical location. It also let user manage their photos by dates – which to many people is easier.

JetPhoto Studio has geo-tagging capabilities with smooth integration with Google Earth and Google Map. I don’t go around much so I don’t use this feature, but for those of you who are phototraveller, this one is a treat.

Another features most users will appreciate are the ability to create photo gallery – JetPhoto can easily make beatiful flash slideshows as well as lightbox web galleries, screensavers and desktop wallpaper, photo slideshow for presentation, and small images by resizing and cropping photo to fit most handphones and PDAs. Printing photo is also a snap either using your own printer or JetPhoto online printing service.

More …

JetPhoto Studio works very well with the web. Uploading and resizing pictures for Flickr is a matter of clicking a button. Tags and Descriptions will be uploaded with photos, too.

For the adventurous ones, this application also comes with JetPhoto Server – a full-featured digital photo publishing service software based on PHP. With JetPhoto Server, anyone can establish his or her own standalone theme photo website quickly and freely.

To publish album to your web server, you can use WebSync. All uploaded pictures will be resized and stamped with watermark automatically while publishing. Once the album is published on web server, user can continually modify its content easily in JetPhoto Studio. The web-side online album will be updated and synchronized with the local album automatically, as long as WebSync is acted again.

Meanwhile, to manage your photo website, you can also use Website Manager, another module especially provided by JetPhoto Studio. For example, to set web page appearance for each online album, or to set an access password for the website.

This article is nothing but a quick look skin-deep chat about the app. If you want a more extensive elaboration, please refer to their online manual.

I personally find JetPhoto Studio to be very helpful, and my Flickr free account is already showing the limitation nags. What’s your personal favorite for all-in-one photo management tool? Spill everything in the comments below.

    bilco - It is "re-read".
    Jeff - The proper order is "...you are all", not "you all are". Your point is valid however. Especially, if as Ian indicates, English is the second language, proofing and spellcheck are helpful.

    Enough of the language police. The article is still understandable, and the app is worth a good look. Thanks for the piece! :)

    Jeff & Bilco - how's your Indonesian then? Go learn it before you start criticising someone's second language!

    Wow! Does anybody even give a cursory proofing glance at posts to the blog? I understand that you all are under the gun to get things out in a timely fashion, but there are many dropped articles and verb conjugation errors in this posting. Run it by a few sets of eyes to proof the presentation. Your stellar content deserves as much.

    I only say this because I love you guys. I am a makeuseof junkie. Thanks for all the useful info.

    Can't wait to see the "beatiful flash" slideshows.

    "For example, to set web page appearance for each online album, or to set an access password for the website." Is this supposed to be a sentence?

    Reread the article. You need to work on your English

      Wow! That's mean .... the author generously contributed his time to document this application for the benefit of people like you. This isn't an English blog!
