Nikon's image sharing and storage service is reborn as NIKON IMAGE SPACE

ikon today announces the launch of its new, free image sharing and storage service, NIKON IMAGE SPACE, available online from January 28.

NIKON IMAGE SPACE is open to anyone - regardless of the camera make they use - who enjoy taking photos or recording movies.

This service makes it easy to upload, view, organize, and share photos and movies with greater convenience through sequential operation, which is achieved by a high speed system, an intuitive user interface UI, a clear window layout, and a simple operation flow.

Zurab Kiknadze, Nikon Europe, comments Nikon has offered my Picturetown, our original online service for storing photos, since August 2007 - and it's been very popular. However, we recognised that the time had come to give this service a complete overhaul - to create a new service that is more intuitive, fun and easier to use, and better integrated with the social networks that most people like to use. One of the best things about NIKON IMAGE SPACE is that it's open to anyone - regardless of the make of camera they use. And it's completely free.

Further information on NIKON IMAGE SPACE will be presented at the Nikon Imaging Japan booth at the CP 2013 camera and photo imaging show to be held January 31st to February 3rd, 2013 at the Pacifico Yokohama Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

Two types of free accounts

NIKON IMAGE SPACE offers users a choice between two types of free accounts
Basic accounts are available to anyone. Users of Nikon digital cameras have the additional option of upgrading to a Special account, using a dedicated application to verify Nikon digital cameras. While both types of accounts are free of charge, the maximum storage space is 2 GB for Basic accounts and 20 GB for Special accounts. Special accounts also offer more advanced functions, including the ability to apply a password when sharing images, and a function that restricts image download.


Improved usability

Significant changes in window design make sequential image operations, from upload to viewing to organizing to sharing, smoother. In addition, a relaxing background colour has been chosen to be easier on the eye, and image layout has been adjusted for ease of use.

Greater performance as a Web system

Operation has been improved with faster system processing capabilities. NIKON IMAGE SPACE offers smoother, more natural operation with faster image upload and download, as well as faster response when images are manipulated.

Greater collaboration with social networking sites

Greater collaboration with social networking sites such as facebook and Twitter expands the possibilities for sharing photos of your own special moments, and posting images from NIKON IMAGE SPACE is easier than ever.
