Light Blue: Photo – Studio management software for photographers

04Feb

Yesterday was a very exciting day in our house as my boyfriend Tom launched Light Blue: Photo a studio management software program for photographers.

Tom wrote his first studio management database to run our fledgling businesses on five years ago and since that time it has been updated and refined many many times. Last year, after constant badgering from me, he decided that it was time to think about launching it to the public. So, Tom joined forces with our good friend

Hamish and they started to plan how to transform the wonderful database that we used to something that would work for other photographers.

Months of hard work and not a few sleepless nights later then Light Blue went live on monday night.

I can't say enough good things about this piece of software – it has kept me sane these last few years and allowed me to grow my business and keep track of everything that I do. It is a fantastic database and all my regular photographer readers I do highly recommend you download the trial and see what you think. It has all sorts of useful functions from the usual things like invoicing and keeping track of clients and orders to the wonderous ability to find that elusive single image that tends to get ordered four years after the shoot. It finds it, sucks it from the ether and pops it in a folder on the desktop ready to go to the lab. You can't have anything more wonderous than that. It does lots of other clever things to so do have a look at the website.

Now enough from me, enjoy the site and we will be back to normal image posting by the end of the week.
