Re: Windows XP -- digital camera/photo features


Nice to see Redmond soliciting user feedback. A few quick suggestions:

) The thumbnail view is about half way to being an album, which is what most folks really needd. The difference is the inclusion of a database like your Jet engine, allowing users to add a title, description, date, etc.

) An "auto layout" option would be nice when sending multiple odd-sized prints to an attached printer. That way, a user could just say "print this directory" or "print this album".

Don't want to wear out my welcome here..

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

So any comments or questions? Fire away!



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.
