PRESS RELEASE: Safesnaps.com makes safe photo storage a snap
Digital archive service gives users sense of security, easy access
London, England (Nov. 22, 2005) - Unix kernel veterans recently launched a new digital photo archive service for individuals who need to know their snapshots are secure. Safe Snaps (www.safesnaps.com) stores pictures, allows for easy retrieval by subscribers and can backup work on demand.
Off-site photo backup is the gold standard in today's computer industry. Safe Snaps' founders want to ensure all photo users the same level of protection without breaking the bank.
"We started the business to fill what we perceived to be a hole in the market for safe, off-site and secure digital photo archival," said Rod Harrison, Safe Snaps CEO. "None of the other companies around offer the same level of service for a remotely similar price."
Founders Rod Harrison and Phil Kaye, bring a combined 35 years of experience and expertise in the technology sector to the new venture. The company formally incorporated in January 2005, with the service making its debut in August.
Safe Snaps differentiates itself from other photo storage services in several ways. First, the company charges a flat fee of $7.50 for an unlimited amount of storage. Next, they store, and allow retrieval of, the full-resolution image.
Safe Snaps' custom-designed PhotoElephant software will automatically save your digital images over the Internet whenever you upload from your camera. No more burning CDs or choosing select files to copy.
"You can forget because PhotoElephant never will," Harrison said. "We store every version of the file you make, so changes get saved as well as the original," Harrison explained. "The backup is automatic, it can run hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, as well as on demand. That means you can't forget to back up, which is a very common cause of lost files."
Safesnaps will never delete a customer's pictures. There are no limits on the number of photos and the price is always the same.
