Light Blue: Photo 1.5
Developer Light Blue has announced v1.5 of Light Blue: Photo, its studio management suite for professional photographers. The program centralizes many of the tasks studios must handle, including booking shoots, reaching clients and managing sales and expenses. The v1.5 patch incorporates a new purchase accounts system, related to job expenses, and support for Google Calendar export.
Also added is an e-mail marketing component, with HTML newsletter distribution and a mail merge template. Some other new features include Quick Reports, a Calendar view, and an inventory tracking system. Mac and Windows versions are available; the former requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 and a 1GHz processor. The full version costs £325, or approximately $536 US.
