Expo 2010, Hello World from Shanghai!   by admin   Apr 30, 2010

Finding KMi   by admin   Jun 1, 2009

I am looking for kmi electro, our old friend who gave us lots of helps to make JetPhoto Studio French localizations. However I lost any connection to him since July last year when kmi translated JetPhoto Studio for Windows version 3.13 and told me he’d like to move to another place in France. I can’t get his responses through email or msn, and no information about him I can hear in the past months.

Please leave a message if you know any information about kmi, or just let him know I am finding him.

Merci beaucoup!

Never Forget!   by admin   Jan 11, 2009

Today, we released our JetPhoto Studio version 4, that is a new version of ‘09 . Standing at the beginning of a new year, just think a bit more. From version 1 to version 4, geotagging (photo locating) is always a key feature in the software. There is a story about our idea and ideal.

Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative ( brings a specific software named TimeMap, that is mainly designed for academic concerns, but also gave me the original ideas about geo-tagging. Actually, we began to think of the prototype of a software that can organize photos with GPS and easy digital mapping just after joining an ECAI conference in 2003.

That was in 2003, we named our prototype as NeverForget. And a first design of NeverForget was made on my iBook with Mac OS 10.2 (see below).The original idea was making a ‘professional’ digital assets management software that manages photo metadata with a MySQL database and renders maps for photo locating with a GIS engine.


But disappointed us that we didn’t find any satisfying GIS engine works on Mac. Of course, then we had never known Google’s incredible adventures with Google Maps and Google Earth.

After that, we decided to switch to JetPhoto, a lightweight solution soon. And new software still inherited some key design from NeverForget, such as a Map view, a Calendar view and a Thumbnail view. The earliest development of JetPhoto began in 2004.

Maybe we had already believed the big change we need when the project was just beginning. Step by step, that was happened in the rest years. We did see Google Maps gives us an amazing digital earth, and new SiRF hi-sensitive GPS chips enable easy locating in more places on our planet. At the same time, geo-tag, a new word was invented by a Flickr community (at least my first time to hear that is there).

Now, as a software designer and a user, I enjoy JetPhoto, that integrates Google Maps, Google Earth, WMS (Web Mapping Service), NASA Earth image, Wikipedia reverse geocoding all in one photo geo-tagging software.


To me, that is a quite lovely way to play my traveling photos and share my never-forget journey experiences with friends.
