SplashPhoto is a fast, easy to use
image viewer for the Nokia Series 60 phones. SplashPhoto allows
users to organize images on their handhelds for individual or slideshow
viewing. It is designed to provide optimal image viewing within
the confines of a handheld's reduced display size and limited memory.
In addition, SplashPhoto includes desktop software that synchronizes
with the handheld, for editing, optimizing, installing, organizing
and cataloging images.
Connect your device to your desktop
computer. Run the Installer and follow the on screen instructions.
At the end of installation, the software will install on the mobile
device. The installer installs the following files:
- SplashPhoto Desktop --
The desktop application.
- SPPlatform.dll --
Extension for the desktop application.
- SplashPhoto.SIS --
The handheld software.
- SplashPhoto User Guide
-- This User Guide.
When you launch SplashPhoto you
will be prompted to enter a registration code or to run in Trial
mode. You may run the software for 30-days in full-functioning
Trial mode. The Trial software and Registered software are identical.
Once the trial period ends you must purchase and enter a registration
code to continue using the software. You do not need to re-install
the software. Simply enter a registration code and your Trial
version will be converted into a Registered version and all images
will remain intact.
