The photo sharing service provides enhanced expediency in functions for its users
New Delhi, Feb 23, 2016 – The revamped online photo sharing service of “NIKON IMAGE SPACE” (http://nikonimagespace.com) has been proudly announced by Nikon India, the 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation Tokyo, leaders in imaging technology, today. The latest version, updated for a user-friendly storage and share functionality, was launched in February 22, 2016.
Originally launched in January 2013, “NIKON IMAGE SPACE”, a name which expresses the fact that it is a space for sharing and appreciating images, is a free online image sharing and storage service open to anyone who enjoys taking photos or recording movies.
“NIKON IMAGE SPACE” is equipped with three new modes that allow users to enjoy photos from a variety of angles. “View” mode supports intuitive browsing of photos, while the new “Report” mode enables analysis of aspects such as photographic tendencies from shooting information for uploaded photos, and feedback on shared photos. The “Organize” mode, for the version on computers only, also available prior to the renewal, has been improved to enable easier and more natural photo organization with a left-and-right pane layout.
Photo sharing functions have also been improved whereby users can specify a period of time for which images to be shared via the share duration, and also to receive praise from those with whom the images are shared with. For those with preferences for privacy, images can be password protected. A browsing function that enables automatic display of photos to which the same tags have been attached, much like an album, has also been added.
A collaboration with SnapBridge, the new Nikon app announced in January 2016 that enables constant connection between a Nikon digital camera and a smart device using Bluetooth® low energy*1, is also in the plans. This will enable automatic uploads of an unlimited number of 2-MP images to “NIKON IMAGE SPACE” from SnapBridge with a registered Nikon ID*2.
Nikon will continue to offer ways of enjoying digital photos and movies with the development of new functions for the “NIKON IMAGE SPACE” service, and further improvements to the service.
1 The start of the collaboration with SnapBridge will be announced once the schedule has been determined
2 "Nikon ID" refers to a new individual ID for user registration necessary to enjoy Nikon services. E-mail addresses registered with SnapBridge will serve as Nikon IDs, allowing users to receive services provided by Nikon. Registration is free. A Nikon ID registration site was launched on February 22, 2016
