HP Image Zone Express

Hewlett-Packard Co. (Freeware)

HP Image Zone Express, also called HP Photo Creations, is an application that allows users to create photo books, photo collages, calendars, and greeting cards from digital photos. Users can create projects in just three simple steps. After choosing a type of project, users can then add digital photos to be used. The third step is to customize the project.

HP Image Zone Express makes use of the Smart Arrangement Technology. This technology analyzes all the digital photos and arranges them to tell a story. The program also comes with personalization tools for adding elements to the project. Users can add texts, graphics, and other effects, such as airbrushing and blending. All the changes can be viewed with the 3D preview so that users can immediately see what the project will look like. After creating a project, users have the option to print it at home or to order from HP and have the project printed out and delivered.

Projects that can be created with the HP Image Zone Express program are the following:
• Photo prints and collages in different sizes
• Photo cards and greeting cards
• Premium photo books with leather or cloth covers
• Photo calendars
• Puzzles, mouse pads, and mugs
