Enhances and Simplifies Digital Photo Sharing and Story Telling

West Trenton, NJ, November— dotPhoto Inc. ( today announced the release of dotPhoto Show™, a new tool that enables digital photographers to add music, voice and special effects to their photos -- creating the next-generation in digital story telling.  This easy-to-use feature of the dotPhoto® online photo sharing and printing web site can also add multimedia stories and PowerPoint® presentations to any web site using dotPhoto's powerful "Link" function.

Using customers' own digital images, the dotPhoto Show allows users to create personalized digital stories by selecting from a wide variety of special effects including music, voice, themed frames, and transitions such as fades, dissolves and wipes.  Beginners can create their own dotPhoto Show from any of their online photo albums with just a single click of the mouse.  Advanced users can become "directors" of their own dotPhoto Shows, choosing from hundreds of special effects and enhancements to combine with their photos and create a cinema-quality story.  Every photo album at dotPhoto can now be viewed as a dotPhoto Show with only a single mouse click.

"Digital photography and online photo sharing web sites have made instant sharing of pictures with friends and family across the globe a reality," says Glenn Paul, President and Co-Founder of dotPhoto. "The new dotPhoto Show enables consumers to take that next step and become interactive storytellers, sharing their digital pictures in a visually appealing and audio-enhanced way."

The dotPhoto Show Builder™ is "always on," requiring no installation or learning of expensive software.  Viewers of dotPhoto Shows only need the Macromedia® Flash® software that currently runs on 97% of Internet-enabled computers worldwide.  The dotPhoto Show can also be used as a business application by allowing users to develop narrated PowerPoint presentations.

"Photographers and business people alike are always looking for the coolest, easiest and fastest technology to enhance their work," added Paul. "dotPhoto is the only online multi-media hub where these people have access to a complete range of photo sharing technology anytime, anywhere."

In addition to the launch of the dotPhoto Show, the dotPhoto web site has undergone significant changes to make it easier for consumers to share, preserve and profit from their images.  The site has been completely redesigned, including new graphical treatment and a state-of-the-art shopping cart to make purchasing and tracking of prints and custom photo gift orders as easy as possible.  Customers can also organize and preserve digital photos online and order CDs and DVDs for archival purposes and as gifts.
