- To burn Gift CD´s with Pictures inside

- To create Photo Web Pages for the publication of digital pictures on the web

- To add Labels for every image

Additional to the mentioned basic functions, the application should be able to Perform a Ranking within all available images in order to choose the best ones.

Also the ability to order Photo-prints, Photo-Books, create Posters, collages or Movies (i.e. to create DVDs). The movie should be able to use also high quality Video compression Codecs like DivX.

While Mac Users have a "built-in" application with iPhoto able to perform all mentioned features, PC Users had to buy additional software like Adobe´s Album.
