PRESS RELEASE: Avanquest Software's Sendphotos 5 Offers All-In-One Solution For Private Digital Photo Sharing And Archiving
New Software-Service Features Ability To Create Private Online Photo Sharing Communities
DENVER - May 8, 2007 - Avanquest Software, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market, today announced the release of SendPhotos 5, an enhanced version of its comprehensive digital photo sharing and storage solution for the consumer market.
SendPhotos 5 is an easy-to-use software-service combination that provides seasoned digital photographers and novices alike with innovative options for sharing photos through email or online while at the same time affording them peace of mind about the privacy and preservation of their digital images.
SendPhotos 5 subscribers receive a private online locker with 2 GB of storage at www.sendphotos.com and a powerful desktop application that simplifies the process of backing up, organizing and editing photo collections.
New to this version of SendPhotos is the ability to create private online communities where friends, families and other groups can share photos in an ad-free environment. SendPhotos subscribers can invite an unlimited number of guests to browse photos and even add their own to the private website. SendPhotos will notify the subscriber when guests have added photos and will automatically download them to the main photo collection on the user's PC(s).
SendPhotos 5 is the only software-service combination that features an easy-to-use "Photo Story" creator, which brings multiple photos, personalized captions and colorful themes together into a customized page that can be displayed in the online locker. SendPhotos 5 will also optimize the "Photo Stories" so they can be easily placed in the message body of an email, allowing multiple full-size photos to be sent and received up to 25 times faster than with individual attachments.
With a new synchronization feature, SendPhotos 5 eliminates the repetitive task of having to add and edit photos in multiple locations by automatically backing up the user's photo library across multiple PCs and the Web, giving consumers the ability to access their entire photo collection from anywhere and at any time. SendPhotos 5 users will even be able to automatically upload photos taken on a mobile phone to their PC and online folders following the launch of SendPhotos Mobile later this year.
"With SendPhotos 5, photo enthusiasts of any skill level have the ability to create their own private photo sharing community, providing an easy, secure way for family and friends to connect over shared memories," said Bob Lang, President of Avanquest Software. "By combining state-of-the-art PC software with an online tool and an upcoming mobile client, SendPhotos delivers a well-rounded package that ensures the consumer's entire photo library is accessible at all times."
The newest version of SendPhotos offers more creative options than ever before, with a larger selection of theme templates for customizing "Photo Stories," the ability to create slideshows and 14 new templates and size options for printing professional-looking photos at home.
With all of its enhancements, the software-service still includes ever-popular SendPhotos features such as intuitive design tools and free email support. SendPhotos 5 also comes with automatic updates, so the subscriber's software is effortlessly maintained and kept up-to-date.
SendPhotos 5 will also integrate with the soon-to-be-released SendPhotos Mobile, Avanquest's mobile phone application that uses patented memory management technology to automatically upload photos taken with a camera phone to the user's online locker. The mobile client also gives subscribers direct access to any image in their online locker from anywhere and at anytime, displayed through a unique on-device thumbnail view.
For only $29.95, users can purchase the SendPhotos 5 software and 2 GB of online storage space, with additional storage available. For more information, visit www.sendphotos.com.
