Tuesday, January 11, 2011 | by Eamon Hickey
Light Blue, a business management application for photographers, has been updated to v3.0. New features include support for accessing your business information from an iPhone or iPad, a redesigned calendar, improved handling of variable tax rates, and more. (A more complete list of new features is here.)

Light Blue Software is also simultaneously launching an optional data hosting service, which stores your business data on the company's servers in London and allows you to access the data via the Internet using the Light Blue application on any of your computers — from your laptop while traveling, for example. 

Light Blue 3.0 is available in versions for Mac or Windows. A fully-functional 30-day trial version of the software can be downloaded from the Light Blue web site. A full license costs US$455 (£295) and an upgrade from a previous version costs US$145 (£95).

More information is in the press release below.

Press Release

Light Blue Software ships an updated version of its business management system for professional photographers.

Cambridge, England - 11 January 2011
Light Blue Software today announced the immediate availability of Light Blue 3.0, a major update to its business software for professional  photographers.

Heading up the list of improvements are iPhone & iPad interfaces and a new hosting service.

Because the desktop version of Light Blue is built on top of FileMaker's powerful database system, Light Blue 3 has been upgraded to take advantage of FileMaker Go to give photographers access to their critical business data from their iPhone or iPad.

Light Blue Software's new hosting service has been launched in response to users wanting to take their copy of Light Blue on the road. With Light Blue 3, photographers now have the option of hosting their data on Light Blue Software's servers and accessing it from any of their computers (or iOS devices) that have an internet connection.

Other new features in Light Blue 3 include a completely new built-in calendar, improved tax handling for anyone who sells different products & services at different tax rates, and VAT reports for users based in the UK.

Light Blue is a flexible business management system that lets professional photographers keep on top of shoots, contacts, orders, payments and purchases. As well as bursting with clever things to help them run a busy and successful business, Light Blue also makes it easy to manage images files, publish them on the web and profit from them.

Praised for its ease of use, Light Blue has proved very popular with photographers wanting to improve their productivity, and received a 5 out of 5 rating in the March 2010 edition of Photo Pro magazine, who commented that "Light Blue is the most important piece of software I own after Photoshop... every photographer should give it a try". It also won ‘Best Private Sector Solution’ in the FileMaker CubeAwards09.
