Nikon relaunches image storage and sharing site as Nikon Image Space
Nikon has relaunched its image sharing and storage service as 'Nikon Image Space'. Unlike 'myPicturetown', this service will be open to non-Nikon users as well. However, owners of Nikon cameras are eligible for 20GB of free storage space compared to 2GB for regular members.
More intuitive and easier to use, Nikon's image sharing and storage service is reborn as "NIKON IMAGE SPACE"
NIKON IMAGE SPACE" is a free online service for sharing images open not only to users of Nikon digital cameras, but anyone who enjoys taking photos or recording movies.
This service makes it easy for camera enthusiasts to upload, view, organize, and share their photos and movies of once-in-a-lifetime moments with greater convenience through sequential operation, which is achieved by high speed operation of the system, an intuitive user interface (UI), a clear window layout, and a simple operation flow.
Nikon has offered its image sharing and storage service, my Picturetown, since August 2007. my Picturetown has been used by a great many people in the world either for free of charge or for a fee with some special privileges. However, with a complete overhaul of the service, we are taking this opportunity to change the name from my Picturetown to "NIKON IMAGE SPACE."*1
Nikon will continue to offer users ways to enjoy their digital images through "NIKON IMAGE SPACE".
