Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

iView MediaPro 1.4 Adds Framed Galleries

iView MediaPro 1.4 Adds Framed Galleries -- iView Multimedia has released iView MediaPro 1.4, the latest version of their surprisingly deep media cataloging program. Version 1.4 adds a number of welcome features, including a built-in backup feature that can copy files to CD-R or other removable disks, lossless JPEG rotation, mouse wheel support, support for Mac OS X's thumbnail icons, an option to create frame-based HTML galleries, performance improvements when running under Mac OS X, and a variety of bug fixes. The upgrade is free to registered users; you can use a trial version (2.3 MB download) for three weeks, after which it costs $50 ($30 to upgrade from the earlier iView Multimedia or the rebranded PhotoRelay).

Although iView MediaPro and Apple's recently released iPhoto (see "iPhoto Joins the iFold" in TidBITS-611) would seem to address the same needs, the two are actually quite complementary. Drag-and-drop works perfectly between the two, with iPhoto happily importing images dragged in from iView MediaPro and iView MediaPro happily linking to images dragged in from iPhoto. Plus, iView MediaPro provides simple brightness, contrast, and sharpness adjustments along with basic color correction tools (from the Window menu, choose Display Calibrator) but lacks iPhoto's red-eye reduction and black and white conversion tools.
