PARIS and LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/26/09 -- Avanquest Software today released as a free iPhone application its Avanquest SendPhotos photo sharing service. The service leverages the convergence of mobile phone, desktop and Web 2.0 technologies to enable friends and family to instantly and securely share and exchange favorite photos and digital images free over the Web from their computer or mobile device virtually anytime or anywhere.
The iPhone application's built-in photo editor allows color and contrast adjustments to images and provides the ability to annotate, crop and "smudge" out parts of a photo. Other features include support for Wi-Fi as well as a cellular connectivity, allowing mobile subscribers to avoid costly data charges. It is easy to set up an account within the iPhone application so that users can begin sharing photos immediately.
Further expanding the robust community of users for the interactive photo sharing service, the company also unveiled today the SendPhotos iPhoto Plug-in for the Mac Photo Gallery application, which gives users of the popular iLife '09 iPhoto Macintosh application a simple one-step method for publishing of photos to the SendPhotos service.
The free Macintosh application can be downloaded at www.SendPhotos.com. iPhone users can access the mobile application either via iTunes or the iPhone App Store.
"Giving Macintosh and iPhone users access to our powerful application with its mobile and desktop client and many unique sharing features brings us closer to our goal of making universal photo sharing a reality for SendPhotos users," said David Wright, president, Avanquest Product Design Group. "The iPhone now is one of more than 150 popular mobile devices from leading manufacturers for which we enable instantaneous uploading of photos with 'set it and forget it' simplicity."
SendPhotos users enjoy 1GB of free online storage space for archiving approximately 2000 photos* online. Users also have the ability to invite friends and family to 'share-back' their images, providing the opportunity to create a comprehensive photo document of a social event, such as a wedding or birthday party. The SendPhotos account owner simply provides permission to the 'guest' and they upload images to complement a photo album.
The Avanquest SendPhotos Web site provides a personal and private online cache for uploading, archiving, synchronization and sharing of digital images. The www.SendPhotos.com site allows access only to user-authorized family, friends and associates without third-party publicity or search engine pickup and dissemination across the Internet. A simple drag-and-drop, animated and extremely fluid interface facilitates the easy transfer of stored photos to a variety of external photo sharing and social networking sites, including Picasa, MySpace and many others.
Currently available in Beta, Avanquest SendPhotos is available in English, French, Spanish, Italian and German editions and provides the ability to embed a photo 'album' created in SendPhotos to a website or blog by using Avanquest PhotoFlow feature.
