Night Enhance Function
This new feature will enhance those hard- to-see night
photos. Our unique "Night Enhance" feature can brighten
not only night photos but any low light photo without washing out
your photo or losing color. The "Night Enhance"
feature can also be run in batch mode!
Photo Time/Date Stamp & GPS Stamp
One of the most popular features of Visual Media Explorer™
among PixController board users is the Time & Date
Stamp feature. This feature pulls the
time and date stored within your electronic image and stamps it onto your
photo in a readable format. You can easily customize the font,
color, and font size. This powerful feature allows you to stamp a whole folder of photos, a single photo, or selected photos.
Files can be easily moved, copied, re-named, or deleted.
You can right-click on either the Image Thumbnail, or the Folder.
This will produce a pop-up menu for more options such as e-mailing
Batch processing is another powerful tool included
with Visual Media Explorer™. A "batch" is a group of
files, and batch processing performs a set of operations on each
file in the batch. A whole collection of images can be converted from one
file type to another, can be rotated, compressed, resized, change
brightness and contrast, and many more functions.

a photo card reader
A nice addition to your digital trail camera setup is a USB media card reader. Using a
card reader will let you keep your PixController unit
in the woods by just swapping media cards when checking the
unit. Otherwise you
must use the digital camera to transfer the photos to your
computer via the included USB cable.
Please refer to your digital camera manual for
information about transferring your photos to your computer.
Using a GPS with your Trail Camera
We recommend that you use a GPS unit to mark the location of
your trail camera. In the summer months especially you can easily
lose your unit in the woods.
Secondly, if you do use a GPS unit along with your Trail Camera you
can embed the GPS position into the photos taken by the unit with
your copy of Visual Media Explorer™. With Visual Media Explorer™
you can stamp the GPS position on to your photos along with the
time/date, and phase of the moon. You can even download aerial
photos and topo maps from Microsoft’s Terraserver.
