Displaying Photos on PDAs

Imagine how cool—and impressive—it would be to show your pictures on your Palm or Pocket PC. There are a thousand possible uses: from showing pictures of your family to carrying photos to an appraiser rather than the expensive item itself. Or if you're a real estate agent, you could have pictures of an apartment or house on your PDA (personal digital assisant) to show clients. If they like what they see, you could bring them to the house. If they don't, you've saved a lot of time and mileage.

As PDAs become more like desktop computers, software can make it easy to use a PDA for these purposes. The most popular cross-platform program for the Palm OS is Club Photo's free Album To Go—a compelling reason to use their photo site (www.clubphoto.com/). The software allows you to organize albums on your computer or the service's Web site, then transfer them to your Palm handheld, just as you would with any other HotSync operation. The newest versions work only with color Palms, although there is an older, feature-limited Windows version for black-and-white PDAs. If you are a Mac user running OS X, or you have a black-and-white Palm handheld and don't want a limited application, consider SplashPhoto (www.splashdata.com/). It costs $9.95 (as opposed to the free Album To Go software), but it's worth it (Figure 11.11).
