Kodak EasyShare is an image viewer/editor for Windows computers. It is the default image viewer that comes bundled with most Kodak digital cameras, but the application can be used by anyone. Version 7.1 adds several new features. The first one is the ability to tag pictures. By tagging a picture, you give it a keyword, which you can later use to find pictures. This is extremely useful for when you have thousands of pictures and don't have the time to look at them all. The second new feature that was added to the application was the Upload function. With it, you can upload your images to your Kodak Gallery, if you have one. Or if you have videos, you can upload them to YouTube. However, these two features are not really refined and it looks like there is some work to be done here. The addition of websites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, among others, is mandatory for an application like this. Graphically, Kodak EasyShare looks similar to those versions previously reviewed on Software Informer. Some things still remain the same. Quicktime is still needed for movie playback and it is a separate download. The application is downloaded by a small installer, which makes the process considerably longer and unnecessarily so. Unlike previous reviewers, I find that the editing functions Kodak EasyShare comes by default should suffice for every-day tasks like correcting red eyes, cropping, enhancing pictures, etc. The slideshow and gallery views seem perfect and very responsive.
