WinZip Pro and WinZip Enterprise feature

Working with Your Digital Still Camera

WinZip® makes it easy to download and store pictures, audio, and even video from your digital still camera. WinZip's camera features can eliminate many of the steps required to retrieve and manage your files and can save you a large amount of storage space. Using WinZip, you can:

  • Download all the pictures from your camera, or select only the ones you want.
  • Rotate your pictures so that they are properly oriented (your camera must provide support for this feature).
  • Compress your pictures so they take up less space without any loss of picture quality.
  • Remove images from your camera after they have been downloaded.

WinZip lets you specify what files you want zipped, how you want them zipped, and where the resulting Zip files will be stored.

Snap and Share

The easy-to-use WinZip Snap and Share feature helps you retrieve pictures, audio files, and videos from your camera and store them in a Zip file. It guides you, with two handy windows, through the process.

Using Snap and Share you can specify:

  • from which camera to gather your pictures, video, and audio files,
  • what the Zip file should be named and where it should be located,
  • what files should be imported and whether to automatically rotate images that are not properly oriented,
  • what compression type to use
  • whether or not to remove from your camera the files you have downloaded, and
  • take advantage of all the WinZip Express options

Snap and Share is very flexible, yet it is very easy to use. For example, the only thing that it requires you to specify is which files from your camera you want to zip; the defaults will supply reasonable values for all of the remaining settings.

Starting Snap and Share

There are two ways to start Snap and Share:

  • From AutoPlay: click Zip from camera using WinZip in the AutoPlay dialog that appears when you connect your camera.
  • From the WinZip Ribbon interface: click Snap and Share on the Create/Share or the Unzip/Share tab
