A dedicated utility that is especially designed to provide owners of HP notebooks with a means of managing their digital pictures

editor's review



Many laptop manufacturers bundle inside the packages they offer their clients software tools for extending the capabilities of the hardware devices and allowing them to make the most out platform-specific innovations. Hewlett-Packard is a good example in this respect, as there are many specialized utilities that can be used on supported notebooks to make certain tasks easier.

When it comes to handling images stored onto such a system, HP MediaSmart Photo Software is a recommended program that is able to take care of many tasks which are related to the management of the digital pictures.

Thanks to a nice looking interface, this application makes it possible to access all the functions that allow users to organize, edit or print the photos. It is important to note that this package can only be installed onto supported devices, so not all Hewlett-Packard owners can benefit from its features.

Looking at the stored images is also something HP MediaSmart Photo Software can be used for via its own viewer. The grouping of pictures is subject to one of the available criteria, including the date, the directory name or file tags and the ratings that have been assigned by the user.

Insofar as the editing part is concerned, one can personalize photos taken with a digital camera, for example, by removing red-eye or cropping some selected portions of the image. There are some enhancements that can be applied with HP MediaSmart Photo Software and in case the orientation of the picture is off, it is possible to rotate the photo into the desired position.

The feature set is completed by the ability to print and share images, which includes uploading snapshots taken through a dedicated online service. On the whole, HP MediaSmart Photo Software users will get many useful functions from this package, but it is nonetheless quite limited in the same time by the fact that it is available only for certain Hewlett-Packard devices.
