Trolltech has announced that Adobe System's new product, Adobe Photoshop Album, was developed using Trolltech's Qt, a multiplatform C++ development framework.

"Trolltech has provided us with an intuitive, powerful tool. Qt simplified our task of developing Photoshop Album by providing high-level tools that we could customize to meet our needs," said Mike DePaoli, Photoshop Album Engineering Manager. "The product is excellent, the support was outstanding and we are extremely pleased with our decision to go with Qt."

The Adobe Photoshop Album helps users find, fix, share and protect their digital photos. The product received the Best of CES award in the photography and imaging category at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the world's largest consumer electronics trade fair.

"Adobe's use of Qt to build Photoshop Album is further validation that Qt is a world-class development framework. Qt is designed to take care of the horrible low-level details so the developer can focus on adding functionality to the application," said Eirik Eng, Trolltech president. "An engineering team using Qt can focus on the fun, creative part while Qt takes care of the rest."
