Canon cloud-based image management

Canon has launched 'irista' – an advanced, cloud-based image management platform that allows you to access and manage photo libraries.

People today take thousands of digital photographs which have become scattered across multiple devices – irista is built to help curate entire image libraries in one central location. Previously known in beta-form as Project1709, irista makes it easy to find any picture or memory – regardless of which device it was shot on.

irista has been created around four consumer needs:
·  simple to use: making it quick and easy to find any image in a photo collection
·  connected: share images directly on Facebook and Flickr and keep track of likes and comments
·  inspired: a single place for people to interact with their images, enhance their photography skills and get the most out of their pictures
·  puts everybody in control: all images stored securely in one location so they can be accessed anytime, anywhere

The service supports a wide range of file types, has no file size limitations and automatically uploads new additions to image collections. A sleek user-interface is supported by a powerful search index, which allows people to locate an image based on a wide range of criteria. The clean, tiled design features a customisable timeline ribbon and tag-based filtering options that make it easier to find shots using dates, location, custom user tags, lens type and much more. Social integration with Facebook and Flickr also allows users to publish images on both platforms, as well as track social comments, directly from the irista interface.

irista is available to everyone, with tiered storage options to suit a range of different needs. The entry tier offers 10GB of cloud storage space completely free-of-charge. It offers casual or hobbyist photographers full use and functionality of the irista platform, providing them with an ideal place to manage libraries or specific photography projects. Advanced enthusiasts or professional users, who require larger capacities, can choose from two further storage options, with 50GB and 100GB tiers available for a monthly or annual cost.

irista subscription tiers are as follows:
·         Up to 10GB: No cost, full functionality
·         Up to 50GB: £4.49/€4.99 per month, or £45.00/€49.00 per year
·         Up to 100GB: £9.99/€10.99 per month, or £99.00/€109.00 per year
