brought readers news
about a new application in development at eVision, LLC called ePhoto. ePhoto is a cataloging and visual search system for digital images aimed at consumers, prosumers and professionals created by the same company that has developed similar technology for high-end digital asset management systems (under the eVe name).

ePhoto enables users to catalog and search their digital image collections by actually sketching or drawing what they’re looking for using the software’s QueryPad tool. They can also find using keywords and other metadata.
When MacCentral spoke with eVision last month, the company indicated that ePhoto would be released during the second quarter of 2002. If you’d like to give the software a try, a preview version is now available for download from the
ePhoto Web site.
The free preview release provides users with “an early trial” of the software. eVision has released it to cull user feedback on ePhoto’s function and features.
The preview release is limited to 750 total images — 176 images are included with ePhoto as a sample to demonstrate the software’s capabilities. The preview expires on April 24, 2002. eVision will release updated versions at that time.
