PRESS RELEASE: Instant Photo Sharing Software Offers a Fast, Easy and Safe Way to Distribute Digital Images
PiXPO enables instant photo sharing and chat with no downloading, no resizing and no waiting
Victoria, British Columbia - March 10, 2004 How2Share Technologies Inc., a second generation digital imaging software company announces the availability of PiXPO, a revolutionary new software program that changes the way people share pictures online. Built on How2Share's proprietary sharing technology, PiXPO stands apart from other photo sharing applications as users can browse, preview and download pictures directly from another PiXPO users' computer.
PiXPO users can create public or private photo albums that can be shared instantly without selecting, resizing, or uploading images - steps required by other photo sharing methods. The program provides the user with the unique ability to create an album and simply grant access to selected people to view their pictures. Access to the albums is instantaneous.
Other features PiXPO offers the user include:
The digital imaging industry continues to experience explosive growth as documented by InfoTrends Research Group who forecast that the number of digital images will grow from 39 billion currently, to reach 260 billion digital images captured in the year 2010.
- Easy creation of live photo albums with one-click;
- Instant sharing of unlimited images and photo albums;
- Fast searching and browsing of high resolution images;
- Controlled permission to access to image collections;
- Real-time chat with friends while they view pictures;
- Industry leading encryption ensures safety and security.
The popularity of sharing these images is highlighted by Jupiter Research who note, "With over 73% of consumers expressing interest in having the capability to e-mail photos to friends and family, Jupiter believes that facilitating the sharing of photos among communities will be the primary application for online digital imaging."
President & CEO of How2Share, Colin How said, "Over 200 million Internet users send or receive pictures via e-mail or by uploading images to a web hosted solution. Both of these methods consume unnecessary bandwidth and storage resources and neither option allows the recipient to preview their images before downloading. PiXPO solves these problems and makes the sharing of digital images easier, safer and at least 10 times faster than other technologies. Initial feedback from PiXPO users has been excellent and we are very pleased to be bringing this exciting new technology to the marketplace."
Earlier this week, How2Share Technologies and its' proprietary image sharing technology was chosen as the winner of the 13th Annual Advanced Systems Institute Exchange Innovation Awards, an initiative to honor outstanding new technologies in British Columbia.
A 30 day trial of the full version of PiXPO can be downloaded for free from www.Pixpo.com. Once the 30 day trial expires, PiXPO can be purchased for $29.99 USD.
