New KODAK EASYSHARE Software Version 5.2 Offers Innovative ‘Favourites’ Feature, Providing Effortless Access to Your Best Pictures Anytime, Anywhere

Favourite Pictures Automatically Made Available Anywhere in the KODAK EASYSHARE System for Instant Viewing and Sharing — On Your Camera, Computer, and Online

LONDON, January 3 2006 - Eastman Kodak Company has introduced KODAK EASYSHARE Software version 5.2, which is free, simple-to-use software that helps users effortlessly organise, edit, share and print their digital pictures.

This new version helps people quickly view and share their best pictures anytime, anywhere — on their computer, online, and on their camera — through an innovative, enhanced ‘favourites’ feature. The free download is available at http://www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw/

Version 5.2 is compatible with all popular brands of digital cameras, as well as the most widely used digital picture/video file formats. Simply tagging a picture as a favourite places it into the software’s favourites album on a WINDOWS or MACINTOSH system, and then automatically uploads it to the favourites album within your KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery account, providing an additional degree of safety and security. When using a compatible KODAK EASYSHARE digital camera, the tagged picture will also be placed into the on-camera favourites album.

“KODAK EASYSHARE Software is the free, all-in-one, user-friendly digital photo application that helps people effortlessly find and share their pictures,” said Carolyn Walsh, Product Sales Director Digital, Eastman Kodak Company. “Our re-engineered favourites feature makes it simple for people to do more with their pictures — such as creating custom gifts like mugs, calendars and photo books via the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery — while retaining the ease of use that has become Kodak’s hallmark.”

Another new noteworthy feature is the ‘Quick Print’ function, which allows people to save time by providing one-click printing throughout the software.

EASYSHARE Software version 5.2 continues to include user-friendly and intuitive features from previous versions including video editing tools, effortless organisation tools and simple sharing options. In addition, EASYSHARE Software is leading the way into wireless digital photography through its support of the KODAK EASYSHARE-ONE digital camera, Printer Dock Plus Series 3, and Photo Printer 500, all of which are Wi-Fi compatible.

The award-winning KODAK EASYSHARE digital photography system — consisting of cameras, snapshot printers, online services, docks, software, photo papers, and accessories — makes taking, organising, sharing, and printing high quality digital pictures effortless.
