Lifeline for photographers drowning in the digital deluge - LifeThemes will "revolutionise the way people store and manage their growing digital photography collections"
LifeThemes indexing and search functions allows you to create libraries of information about people, places, family, pets and other important elements of your life. Thanks to the programs ability to link data, you can gain maximum benefit from your treasured photographs by combining them with video, audio and text to produce memorable LifeLines that can cover decades and be passed from generation to generation like a digital time capsule.
LifeThemes is the brainchild of John Willis, MD of LifeStyle Software, who came up with the idea after amassing over 7000 digital photographs. He said: Today, our lives are so full and go at such a pace that we need to record what is happening. This can be seen with the growth of Web logging, or blogging, and with Microsofts recent announcement of plans for a SenseCam black box that enables you to download your life onto a computer.
He continued: At LifeStyle Software we predicted this trend two years ago when we started developing LifeThemes so now we are bringing to market a tool that is unique in the breadth of features it offers not only to keen photographers but the thousands of families or individuals who just feel the need to leave their mark by creating a vibrant record of their lives.
However, LifeThemes isnt just aimed at amateur photographers as another of its key features are the individual diaries that can help run your familys day-to-day activities. Automatic task reminders mean that youll never forget important appointments and there are also customisable holiday and party planning wizards to help you organise special events.
LifeThemes will be available in October 2004 priced at 49.99 and can be ordered directly from the companys website www.lifethemes.com , from the sales hotline on 0845 644 0641 or from various online suppliers.
