Programs For Every Need
There was all kinds of software
at PMA 2004, but I would like to pass along some advice to would-be
developers who want to get rich making under-$100 software for Windows
that lets users manage, edit, print, and do all kinds of tricks. Fuggedaboutit.
ACD Systems owns this market. While the Mac OS version of ACDSee is
lame, at least they took the time to make one. And Kodak gives away
EasyShare software for Mac OS and Windows that works with all their
digital cameras, so what's the big deal?

DO Labs' DxO Analyzer
software helps professional users obtain data relative to the characteristics
and faults of digital cameras. It consists of a Windows-only based application
and a test target covered with a pattern of more than 1000 "DxO
Spots." Digital images of the DxO Target are taken with the lens/camera
that is being tested, then loaded into the DxO Analyzer software. A few
mouse clicks produce objective information, such as local, maximum, and
average distortion levels; local, maximum, and average values for chromatic
aberration as well as full field information for vignetting. DxO Analyzer
also lets you measure the perceptual blur (or lack of sharpness) and a
measure of noise for a given average gray level in the image.
