Microsoft drops Digital Image Suite

Microsoft has discontinued its Digital Image Suite, saying that functions of the software are available in Windows Vista.

Microsoft has discontinued a line of digital photo software, saying that the functions can now be found in Windows Vista and other Microsoft software.

Copies of Digital Image Suite will be available while supplies last and existing customers will be supported through April 30, 2010 or three years from purchase date, whichever comes first, Microsoft said on its Digital Image Suite Web page. Microsoft posted the note on May 10.

The software is also still available on Amazon.com.

Digital Image Suite helps users organize their digital photos in files and arrange them in galleries and slide shows. It also includes tools to improve images by doing things such as correcting exposure and fixing red eye.

When Microsoft launched Vista, it often highlighted the digital image features included in the operating system. The Digital Image Suite Web page now points visitors to Windows Vista page describing photo management features in Vista, including editing and organizational capabilities.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
