PRESS RELEASE: dotPhoto introduces museum-quality poster prints & wall coverings
West Trenton, NJ - July 14, 2004 - dotPhoto, Inc. www.dotphoto.com, a leading award-winning photo-sharing and digital photography web site, announced today the ability for consumers to print poster-sized prints and wall coverings online from digital and scanned photos. Available now at www.dotphoto.com (after joining with a free membership), everyone can create beautiful posters of their photographic artwork for gifts or personal use. Landscapes, sporting events, animals, nature, and friends and family can be turned into museum quality print sized from 12" x 18" mini-posters up to 24" x 36" wall coverings with special introductory prices from $9.99 to $17.99 until July 31, 2004.
"Consumers will be surprised to see the professional posters they can make out of their own photos, and our professional and newspaper photographers will be happy that they can sell posters in addition to the gifts and framed prints that they already sell through dotPhoto," said Glenn Paul, President & Co-founder, dotPhoto, Inc.
Winner of numerous awards, including the 2004 DIMA Innovation Award and Hi-Tech Pioneer Award, dotPhoto is a trail-blazer in online photo-printing and sharing. In addition to offering the new poster-sized prints, dotPhoto also recently announced its new 4xD Format print size to solve the long-standing digital camera aspect ratio problem -- a mismatch between digital cameras that use a 4:3 aspect ratio and their prints, which are processed using 35mm's 3:2 aspect ratio. dotPhoto's 4xD Format allows the digital camera's image to be completely displayed without the need for cropping or boarders.
Other achievements by dotPhoto include the introduction in February 2001 of the first wireless connectivity services for camera phones (called Pictavision) and unique technologies to allow users to add sound, text and voice to their online images, as well as edit and organize them into their own portfolio, album or sound-captioned slide show.
