PRESS RELEASE: GoDaddy.com Makes Building an Online Photo Album Easy
Just in Time for the Holidays - Now Simple to Share Your Priceless Pics Online
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- GoDaddy.com® offers yet another way for you to use your domain name with the introduction of Online Photo Filer, an affordable, easy-to-use method for sharing photos on the World Wide Web. Whether you're a shutterbug or an Internet amateur, Online Photo Filer is a cinch to use and best of all, your family, friends and colleagues can view your images without the hassle of logging in.
Online Photo Filer is a photo manager that helps users store and present their images on a specialized Web site, at their own domain name. By registering a personalized Web address, you can give your friends and family an easy-to-remember and relevant address to view your favorite photos. Your viewers can order wallet through poster-sized prints directly from the application and have them shipped to their door.
The service supports single photo or bulk upload options, whereby you may add entire directories to your online collection. Once uploaded, you can choose from a variety of editing options, all managed from the comfort of your own domain name. Individual galleries may be password protected, kept private or shared publicly.
The Photo Marketing Association International (pmai.org) estimated that 20.5 million digital cameras were sold in 2005. This drove demands for 7.7 billion digital prints; digital photography is here to stay.
"The idea is to allow all digital camera owners to share their images, online and in print, without the fuss," said Warren Adelman, GoDaddy.com President and COO. "There are other photo-sharing sites online, but most make you use their long and impossible to remember URLs, or they make your friends give up information to view your photos. With Online Photo Filer, you just provide them your personalized domain name."
