Late last year, I blogged about the beta release of Hyves Desktop. In about half-a-year, the application has grown much more than just helping folks upload images to Hyves. It now has some very interesting features to help you spice up your photos. Here is a short video demo showing off some of them:
You can download the app for free from http://hyves.nl/hyvesdesktop/download (but you need to have joined Hyves (for free again) before you can download it).
A lot of work has gone into this 1.2 release from the Hyves Desktop team: Arend, Boud, Girish, Markus and self. We’ve also designed the application in a unique way – the main screen’s ui is in html/js, with each core functionality coded in C++ and integrated into the app as a Qt/Webkit plugin.
We can already see how popular the pimping and effects features are, by the sheer number of photos in Hyves tagged gepimpt. Keep em coming, folks.
