Light Blue Software has updated its photographic business software, Light Blue: Photo v2. The software manages digital files, publishes online photo albums, handles finances and tracks photoshoots. It offers customizable invoices, galleries, brochures and personalized communications for individual clients. The database, built on FileMaker, helps users manage images, orders and invoices.
Version 2 features a revamped user interface, promising improved ease-of-use for newcomers and experienced users. It has more flexible templates for invoices, quotes, and receipts that users can customize with their unique branding. The new version adds the ability to schedule meetings and photoshoots, including assignments for specific employees. Tracking for mileage and expenses has been improved, while two-way iCal sync has been added for users with Leopard or Snow Leopard systems.
Light Blue: Photo v2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or newer, a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It costs approximately $410, including VAT, and can be purchased with a multi-seat license through company contact.
