Eric Lempel, Sony director of PlayStation Network Operations, has just updated the official Sony PlayStation Blog with information about the PlayStation 3 firmware 2.60 update coming tomorrow. The update will include Divx 3.11 video playback support, "guest access" to the PlayStation Store that allows non-members to browse the store, and a new Photo Gallery application.
"The key feature is a new Photo Gallery application, which delivers a suite of tools for sorting through and displaying your digital photo collection. Digital pictures can be organized in groups according to various criteria, including the camera used to take the photos, the event date and time, colors in the photos, as well as the number, ages, or facial expressions of the people pictured. You can also create slideshows set to music and build photo playlists with an easy-to-use interface."
Check out the official blog post for a video demo of the new Photo Gallery application.
