dotPhoto Launches New Web Site with Expanded
E-Commerce Services for Professional Photographers

dotPhoto’s Pro Web site, spearheaded by recently appointed VP/GM-Web Fred King,
lets professional photographers easily create an online store to sell their photos
and better serve their clients

Orlando,Fla.—February 28, 2006—dotPhoto, a leading provider of photo, video, and multimedia applications, content, and services for wireless and Web users, today announced from the PMA 2006 International Tradeshow the launch of an enhanced Web site that dramatically expands the company’s unparalleled services for professional photographers and newspapers: The site provides e-commerce services that help professional photographers rapidly establish an online store to sell more photos and better serve customers, whether they are a sports, event, portrait, or news photographer; a newspaper offering archived photos; or other photo professional.

Professional photographers can simply register at the new site to launch a customizable online store or ‘Online Portfolio’ that makes it easy for them to upload, organize, exhibit, and offer their work for sale. Once their Online Portfolio is established, professional photographers can focus on shooting while dotPhoto takes care of literally all the back-end operations, including online ordering, order tracking, payment processing, and fulfillment; customer service; financial reporting; and more.
