Introduction
Features
The EPSON digital camera software suite is the perfect
companion for your EPSON digital camera. Using this
software together with your digital camera, you can
save your photos as files on your computer’s hard
disk. You can also convert image files into various

your favorite desktop publishing and image-editing
software. The following list summarizes some of the
programs included with your PhotoPC 3000Z and
their features.
❏
EPSON Photo!3 directly controls the main
functions of your EPSON digital camera, and is
the standard cross-platform interface for other
applications.
❏
EPSON File Converter lets you convert image
files, audio recordings, and computer screen shots
that were not made with your digital camera so
that you can save them in the camera’s memory
card.
❏
EPSON Auto Downloader provides a quick and
easy way for you to transfer your pictures, audio
recordings, and video clips from your camera to
your computer.
❏
EPSON Photo! Print2 allows you to print photos
simply and in a variety of ways using your
computer.
❏
The PhotoPC 3000Z’s camera event feature
allows you to access certain EPSON programs
by pushing a designated button on your camera,
or by connecting the camera to your computer.
This makes common tasks such as downloading
images from your camera to your computer quick
and easy. This feature is only available when
using the USB cable to connect the camera to your
computer.

Converting image and sound files to a compatible
file format using EPSON File Converter, so that
they can be uploaded to your camera’s memory
card. Also, capturing screen shots of your

Using EPSON File Converter
EPSON File Converter, which is included on the
CD-ROM shipped with your camera, allows you to
convert any JPEG or BMP image to the EPSON Photo
file format so that it can be uploaded to the memory
card in your camera. It will also allow you to convert
any WAV or AIFF (for Macintosh only) audio
recording file to the EPSON Photo file format for
uploading to a memory card.
Windows users can also use this software to make and
save “screen shots” of everything displayed on the
computer screen. Use this feature to turn any of the
documents that you create, for example PowerPoint
presentations, into image files that you can upload to
a memory card. Macintosh users can make screen
shots using Macintosh system software.
