Now every digital photographer can give their photo shows the feel of a Hollywood production, complete with a killer musical soundtrack. Today dotPhoto, the online photo site that’s revolutionizing how people share, store, and enjoy digital photos and video, introduced its latest innovation: soundtracks that make it easy to recreate the mood, excitement, and splendor of life’s most important events. Better still, creating the perfect dotPhoto Show soundtrack is a snap. Just upload any MP3 file, or choose from 300 popular songs in dotPhoto’s ever-expanding library, available at http://www.dotphoto.com/.
“Photos are about sharing experiences and telling stories, and dotPhoto’s new soundtracks help people make personal stories more vivid, touching, and fun,” says Glenn Paul, Founder and CTO of dotPhoto. “Now everyone can quickly set the perfect soundtrack for any dotPhoto Show – whether it’s the bride and groom’s wedding song, a favorite holiday tune, a hit single that perfectly complements the subject matter, or even your own composition. This is just another great way that dotPhoto is helping everyone make the most of their digital photographs.”
The dotPhoto Show is the first and only browser-based storytelling tool on the Web, and requires no software download. Creating a personal soundtrack for a dotPhoto Show is as simple as uploading an MP3 from any computer, or selecting from among 300 popular songs available on dotPhoto, including holiday classics such as Jingle Bells, Joy To The World, and The Dreidel Song; patriotic favorites such as The Star Spangled Banner and America The Beautiful; party songs such as Washout and Party Music; and many more. If that’s not easy enough, just clicking on dotPhoto’s ‘instant Show’ feature automatically produces an organized dotPhoto Show, accompanied by a default soundtrack. dotPhoto also makes it easy to add personalized captions, voice narrations, sound effects, and transitions to photo shows. Users can even add opening titles and closing credits to the shows they produce.
“Digital photographers and camera phone users want easy, personal, and powerful ways to share their photos with friends and family online,” says Ivan M. Ruzic, CEO of dotPhoto. “dotPhoto helps you do that and much more, with the Web’s most convenient, most cutting-edge tools and services. No other photo sharing site offers so many ways to make your pictures come to life.”
dotPhoto offers several exclusive features digital shooters won’t find at any other online photo service. For example, dotPhoto is the only online photo service that supports videos from digital camcorders and even camera phones. Plus, dotPhoto’s Pictavision wireless application lets camera phone users access and view their online albums from their mobile phones.
Perhaps most important, dotPhoto members will never lose a lifetime of memories because of a dead hard drive. That’s because every single photograph, video, album, sound effect and dotPhoto Show is safely preserved by dotPhoto’s RAID-based servers – the same level of backup protection the world’s largest companies depend on to safeguard their mission-critical corporate data.
