Rick,

It is great that some-one who owns a camera has wrote the XP interface. Following may be little suggestion from me.

Different camera's EXIF information may not be compatible to each other. In order to get full potential for new EXIF features, have a open interface for EXIF plug-ins. Suppose Canon come up with D40, and EXIF information is different, and some new things. Similar to driver installation for Windows Devices, have a interface so that canon can write a new EXIF-plug-in for D40 camera.

Additionally Picture viewer interface should so easy to naviagte, I like the approach of having specialized keys for most commonly used tasks where ever possible to speed up the navigation. ACDSee is a perfect little tool whic is very user friendly. COPY them :-))) the M$ way !!

Hope this is useful to keep the compaibility across the board.

Thank you again for showing up here.

I've been lurking around this wonderful site for a while. Thanks
for all the great content & information. I am the proud owner of a
Canon D30.

In any case, the reason I am posting today is the recently posted
review of Windows XP's digital camera/photo features. I am the UI
development lead for just about all the features mentioned in the
review, and personally wrote the Photo Printing Wizard. I wanted to
give something back to this site, and also get people's feedback on
our stuff (if people are willing).

A couple of ground rules:

(1) I can't be global technical support for Microsoft products, but
I'll help when/where I can.

(2) I'll eagerly accept any feedback, either positive or negative,
as long as it's polite.

(3) I can't always comment on future plans, but when/where I can, I
will.

So any comments or questions? Fire away!

Thanks.

-Rick

P.S. I also posted this info in the "News" forum but am trying to
move the discussion here as it seems to be the more obvious place
for it.
