A free, downloadable application that enables users to automate photo sharing and organize digital photos has been launched.

The new service called PowerSnap 2.0 lets users automate photo sharing and enables users to organise their photos so users can find all their pictures within a single easy-to-use application.

The software also offers real-time notification to subscribers when new photos are uploaded so users don't have to alert people manually.

Users can manage all their photographs, automatically sending and receiving pictures in near real-time, and synchronise their uploaded albums with their desktop.

PowerSnap works in conjunction with Yahoo's Flickr and is hoping to add support for Yahoo Photos, AOL Pictures, Sony Imagestation, Webshots, Buzznet and Smugmug. PowerSnap in the coming weeks.

A Macintosh version of PowerSnap is expected this Summer.
