Press Release: FxFoto Portable Pictures Available on U3 Powered USB Smart Drives

Triscape Inc., makers of the popular FxFoto(R) software for digital photographers, today announced that Portable Pictures(TM) is available on the U3(TM) smart drive computing
platform. FxFoto Portable Pictures, the first photo software designed
specifically for traveling and on-the-go digital photo users, is a complete
suite designed to run directly from U3 powered USB smart drives, occupying
only a few megabytes and leaving more than enough room for digital image

U3 smart drives create a private and portable workspace that simply plugs
into any computer. Applications such as FxFoto can be carried on any U3
powered USB smart drive and launched on any PC running Windows XP or 2000 for
a highly mobile and secure computing experience. FxFoto Portable Pictures
allows users to not only take their pictures with them, but also carry a
complete application to manage, edit and share them.
FxFoto is targeted at home digital camera owners, photography enthusiasts
and scrapbookers, giving them everything they need to import, organize, edit
and present their digital photographs. Portable Pictures provides all FxFoto
Deluxe Edition features in a compact portable format, including advanced
creativity tools for making collages and slide shows with impressive effects.
Portable Pictures can also securely lock photos and shows with optional
passwords and 128 bit encryption, so sensitive images can be safely carried
wherever users go. The entire application easily installs on U3 smart drives
and takes up about 4MB of storage, less than 2% of a 256MB device.

allowing photographers to enhance and share their pictures wherever they go,
without having to return to their home or office to launch traditional imaging
software," said Steve Simonoff, president of Triscape.

computer to manage their travel photos or assignment work," said U3 CEO Kate
Purmal. "With FxFoto Portable Pictures running on a U3 powered USB smart
drive, on-the-go photographers have the perfect complement to their digital
cameras - a private, portable and protected solution for photo management."
