Visual Story dramatically improves workflows for photographers and video creators. Images are transferred automatically to the smartphone and can be easily selected and edited, enabling fast on-site production and delivery of story galleries. Use the live gallery feature for automatic real-time sharing of galleries with AI-selected photos as they are captured at events. Social media posting is supported, so the clients can share special memories with their families and friends on the same day, which will please their guests to satisfy clients.
