Intel® Technology for Photographers
The performance you need to capture amazing images
See your creative potential through a wide-angle lens of possibility
Timing is everything in photography. Regardless of your skill level, the speed to act spontaneously and explore an idea without interruption increases your potential for better images. Waiting doesn’t help the creative process.
Intel® innovations keep your creativity flowing smoothly from inspiration to execution. Whether you want to transfer RAW image files, digitally finesse a photo, or reign in an immense image library, Intel® technologies help you spend more time shooting and less time processing.
Intel® Solid-State Drives
Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) accelerate performance on desktop and laptop computers, delivering dramatically faster load times than hard-disk drives. When you use an Intel SSD as a boot drive, operating systems initialize faster, applications launch more quickly, and projects typically load in a matter of seconds. They also provide added protection for irreplaceable images. Unlike traditional spinning hard drives, SSDs operate without moving parts for a higher level of durability.
Thunderbolt™ transfer technology
Transferring large numbers of high-resolution photos between your camera, computer, and other devices can be time-consuming. So how can you dramatically reduce those transfer times as image technology continues to drive up image file sizes? The answer is Intel® Thunderbolt™ technology.
A Thunderbolt connection gives you the fastest transfers available, and can transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds. That frees you up to focus on other creative tasks.
Need a mobile hub for all your creative pursuits? An Ultrabook™ device can enhance your creative freedom, giving you a super-light and powerful tool that, at less than three pounds, travels easy and keeps you connected just about anywhere you want to go.
Keeping your creative tools sharp
For the best image performance across a range of devices and platforms, Intel works with a variety of multimedia software developers to optimize creative applications. Industry standards like Adobe Photoshop*, Roxio Creator*, and ArcSoft PhotoStudio* are just a few creative tools that are optimized for Intel.
Processor power enhances creative power
Intel® processors break down barriers between you and your inspiration. Intel® Core™ i5 and Intel® Core™ i7 processors, and Intel® Core™ i7 processor Extreme Edition deliver blazing speeds and extraordinary visual experiences so you can work with sharper images, richer color, and life-like audio and video.
How do Intel® processors accelerate creative workflow? The answer lies in several built-in technologies that boost performance on demand and maximize throughput: Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology, and Intel® QuickPath Interconnect.
Step up to the ultimate in digital artistry
The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition is the perfect engine for serious photographers. When it comes to image retouching, even the largest image files are easy to manipulate. You can act on an idea, see the results as quickly as possible, and then move on to the next idea. Fast, unlimited digital creativity is yours.
Creative inspiration: Intel® Visual Life
Intel launched Intel® Visual Life to share the lives of visually expressive people around the world, including bloggers, chefs, musicians, and videographers. Intel Visual Life celebrates their stories, which are told through a series of “Visibly Smart” films.
