Free image storing service from Nikon

Nikon Image Space

Nikon has announced its new free image storing service available, Nikon Image Space, which will replace the previous my Picturetown.

The free photo storage site is open to everyone and is designed to make it easy to upload, organise and share images with others. The new service is said to be more interactive and fun than the previous storage site my Picturetown and also incorporates social media more efficiently.

Users can get either a basic account or a special account through upgrading. The site will be available from 28 January. To find out more about the differences between the two free accounts please see the press release below from Nikon.

Press release:

Nikon Image Space is open to anyone – regardless of the camera make they use – who enjoy taking photos or recording movies.

This service makes it easy to upload, view, organise, and share photos and movies with greater convenience through sequential operation, which is achieved by a high-speed system, an intuitive user interface (UI), a clear window layout and a simple operation flow.

Zurab Kiknadze, from Nikon Europe, comments: “Nikon has offered my Picturetown, our original online service for storing photos, since August 2007 – and it’s been very popular. However, we recognised that the time had come to give this service a complete overhaul; to create a new service that is more intuitive, fun, easier to use and better integrated with the social networks that most people like to use. One of the best things about Nikon Image Space is that it’s open to anyone – regardless of the make of camera they use. And it’s completely free.”

Further information on Nikon Image Space will be presented at the Nikon Imaging Japan booth at the CP+ 2013 camera and photo imaging show to be held 31 January to 3 February 2013 at the Pacifico Yokohama (Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan).

Here are just some of the key features of Nikon Image Space:

Two types of free accounts
Nikon Image Space offers users a choice between two types of free accounts; basic accounts are available to anyone. Users of Nikon digital cameras have the additional option of upgrading to a special account, using a dedicated application to verify Nikon digital cameras. While both types of accounts are free of charge, the maximum storage space is 2GB for basic accounts and 20GB for special accounts. Special accounts also offer more advanced functions, including the ability to apply a password when sharing images and a function that restricts image download.

Improved usability
Significant changes in window design make sequential image operations, from upload to viewing to organising to sharing, smoother. In addition, a relaxing background colour has been chosen to be easier on the eye, and image layout has been adjusted for ease of use.

Greater performance as a Web system
Operation has been improved with faster system processing capabilities. Nikon Image Space offers smoother, more natural operation with faster image upload and download, as well as faster response when images are manipulated.

Greater collaboration with social networking sites
Greater collaboration with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter expands the possibilities for sharing photos of your own special moments, and posting images from Nikon Image Space is easier than ever.
