Digital cameras have allowed us to shoot hundreds of photos without worrying about changing the camera roll, but having a huge amount of photos means that you need to manage them to avoid cluttering up your system, and also to easily access the required photo from the collection. There are a lot of great photo managers available out there that provide you with multiple options to manage large photo collections. Today we have a simple, yet powerful application called Fotobounce, which lets you organize all the images stored on your computer and share them with your friends and colleagues. The application allows creating a private network with your friends and family, letting you choose what is to be shared with others. Additionally, it makes use of face recognition technology to help you easily tag and organize your photos. Using this feature, it automatically identifies friends and family members, and allows you to transfer the tags to Facebook. Details to follow after the jump.
The application provides you with multiple image sorting options. You can sort the images stored on your computer using filters, such as People, Date, Event, Place, Collection etc, however this requires you to put the images in their proper category when you add them to the application for the first time. This feature enhances the capability of built-in search function and makes the process of finding required photos far more quicker. Fotobounce comes with support for uploading photos on Facebook, Google, Twitter and Flickr, all without using a third party application. The Fotomail feature enables you to email full resolution photos from any portable camera device directly to recipient’s Fotobunce account.
