PRESS RELEASE: Preclick Debuts Photomoviemaker Easy Movie Creator
Newest Preclick Add-on for Preclick, HP, Post-It Photo Creator
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, N.J. -- Sept. 12, 2006 -- Digital photographers capture three times more images than they did with film, yet most collect unseen on hard drives. For the price of two movie tickets, Preclick PhotoMovieMaker lets consumers make unlimited photo movies to play on any DVD player.
Maybe family photo night is back.
PhotoMovieMaker lets digital camera users create compelling movies from their photos to play on their DVDs or PCs. In minutes they can turn up to 250 still digital photos into a stylized movie, complete with music, captions and titles. They can enjoy their digital photos on their TV like their parents enjoyed family memories on their movie projector.
PhotoMovieMaker movies are easily made into VCDs, shared via email, or played as a PC screensaver. A CD or DVD burner is required to burn movies to disc.
"MySpace is moving to Main Street. Consumers want new things to do with digital photos," said Brian Smiga, chief executive officer. "PhotoMovieMaker lets digital picture takers make stories with pictures, like a photo movie of their Summer 2006."
Smiga added that PhotoMovieMaker is a great way to make gifts for friends, and an ideal gift for new digital camera owners.
Moviemakers can choose from four styles -- Old Tyme, Snapshot, Classic and News Flash -- and add music from their own MP3s. The software includes 50 free downloads from eMusic.com, the world's largest unprotected music site. PhotoMovieMaker's SRP is $19.95 at www.photomoviemaker.com; promotional pricing may be offered through partners.
Preclick creates the co-branded photo organizer software for industry leaders HP, Wal-Mart, 3M, Costco, and SanDisk. These brands offer the free software to customers to manage and print their photos. PhotoMovieMaker is the latest in Preclick's suite of add-on applications for HP Photosmart Essential, 3M Post-It Photo Organizer, Wal-Mart Digital Photo Manager, and Preclick Gold Photo Organizer, an award-winning free download available from www.preclick.com. PhotoMovieMaker can also work independently, without an organizer.
