Photo Software For Windows

How photolightning works

Photolightning is the easiest photo software you'll ever use. Just plug your digital camera into your computer to preview your photos. From there you can do whatever you like -- rename them, edit them, print them, email them, and much more.

It's really as easy as 1-2-3:

Step 1: Plug your digital camera into your computer to preview your photos

Step 2: Rename your photos, give them captions, or touch them up

Step 3: Print, email, and share your photos

Step 1

Plug your camera into your computer to preview your photos or work with photos that you've already saved.


Quickly download photos from your digital camera...

  • Photo software should be easy to use, and that's how we designed Photolightning. Just plug your camera or memory card into your computer. Photolightning automatically detects it and copies the photos to your hard drive. If your camera uses floppy disks or CD's, Photolightning can copy and save those photos to your computer too.
  • Choose from a variety of preset folder-naming schemes that make it easy to find your photographs, or create your own each name time.
  • Photolightning is smart enough to never download any photos twice.

  • Unique Photo History view lets you see all of the photos on your disk in chronological order - as if they were all in one folder.
