Concord, NC—DNP Imagingcomm America announced a major software update for its SL620A Snap Lab and DS-Tmini. Version 3.3 provides a range of enhancements to the photo system based upon DNP’s dye-sublimation printers.
As part of the update, panoramic printing functionality was enhanced to add a collage-making feature. This capability supports 2 to 30 images combined onto one panoramic print for any of the supported print sizes from 6×14 inches up to 8×32.
The feature presents a layout of the selected images in various sizes on the page. It allows users to move the images around within the layout or rearrange them as desired. In order to improve user workflow, the existing collage image layout function for standard print sizes was also improved to accept as many as 20 images per page.
Other enhancements in v3.3 include the ability to create popular 2×6-inch photo strips as well as the capability to delete orders after a print job has been completed in order to protect customers’ privacy.
The update also provides enhanced security in any operating environment. A password function was added to the system in order to enter administration settings. It now offers two levels of access passwords: “administrator” and “operator.” An administrator has access to all settings, and the operator has configurable but more limited access to the settings and print job controls.
