I have but a couple of points

1) It is very annoying to have to keep rotating images taken in portrait format ready for printing out or more importatly for use on the web etc. It would be great to have some software that could automatically 'correct' this, maybe using some image analysis technique. It would automatically correct this as images were taken off camera... maybe other simple tasks such as this could also be included to remove some of the donkey work.

2) renaming images, this can be quite a boring process. It would be great if some kind of renaming utility could be implemented. At the most basic level to rename a number of images with a prefix or suffix. (useful for many other applications such as for those involved with film and video where this process is a real pain with windows).

3) The links to online developes should be kept as open as possible. Maybe MS could create a piece of linking software (preferably free or at low cost to promote its use) for use by online developers. This would then allow them to tap into XP. Users could add their own choice of developer rather than rely on those provided by MS such as ofoto. This would also ease localisation issues. We dont all live in US!!! ie. we would just add our own URL's (providing the site had your linking software installed on their server.
