The PowerShot Pro90 IS is equipped with Canon’s own Remote Capture software that enables the camera to be controlled by a Power Mac or Windows PC with USB. Using the supplied interface cable, the following operations can be activated by remote control: lens zooming, flash mode, image quality and of course shutter release. Image files can be recorded without a memory card directly to the PC, or recorded in the camera and the PC sequentially.
With Canon ZoomBrowser EX, Windows users can download, upload and archive images, adjust contrast, saturation and cropping, automatically attach images to an e-mail message, and playback a slide show. ImageBrowser software performs similar functions for Mac users.
Canon PhotoRecord (for WINDOWS only) is a printing utility program that allows even beginners to produce high-quality enlargements with automatic background templates plus titles and captions.
Canon PhotoStitch (for Mac and Windows) works together with the Pro90’s Stitch Assist function to produce seamless panoramas. The program supports QuickTime VR for 360-degree animation, and there’s even an option for cylindrical on-screen display.
Canon TWAIN Driver (for Windows users) and Plug-in Module (for Mac users) are used for downloading images directly to compatible image editing software such as Adobe’s popular Photoshop and Photoshop LE.
In addition to all the software listed above, the PowerShot Pro90 IS is supplied with a complimentary copy of Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE (for Mac and Windows) for comprehensive image manipulation.
