Melville, NY—Nikon Corporation launched Nikon Image Space, a free online image-sharing and storage space for Nikon digital cameras users as well as anyone who enjoys capturing photos or recording videos.
Nikon Image Space will make it easy for photography enthusiasts to upload, view, organize and share their images and HD video, with greater convenience through sequential operation. This is possible due to the high-speed operation of the system, an intuitive user interface, a clear window layout and a simple operation flow.
Nikon has offered its image-sharing and storage service, my Picturetown, since August 2007. Over the years, my Picturetown has been a useful space for many people around the world, and with its complete overhaul, Nikon took the opportunity to change the name to Nikon Image Space. Current users of my Picturetown will have their user account information and content automatically transferred to Nikon Image Space. Additionally, Nikon will continue to provide users new ways to enjoy and share their digital images and videos through the site.
The service will offer two types of free accounts: basic accounts are available to anyone; users of Nikon digital cameras have the additional option of upgrading to a special account, using a dedicated application to verify Nikon digital cameras. While both types of accounts are free, the maximum storage space is 2GB for basic accounts and 20GB for special accounts. Special accounts also offer more advanced functions, including the ability to apply a password when sharing images and a function that restricts image download.
Other improvements to the service include significant changes in window design to make sequential image operations easier, such as uploading, viewing, organizing and sharing. Additionally, a relaxing background color was adopted for a more pleasing image display while an easy-to-use layout was implemented. Operation was also improved via faster system processing capabilities for image uploading and downloading, as well as a faster response when images are edited.
Greater collaboration with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter also simplifies the process of sharing photos and posting images from Nikon Image Space.
The new site, nikonimagespace.com, will be available on January 28, 2013.
