Starpals, Inc., a leading provider of personal homepage solution (iAlmond.com), announced today that the company has launched a new version of photo management software, AlbumParty 1.0 mainly targeted for digital camera consumers. With Christmas approaching, anyone with digital camera can take advantage of free trial to fully enjoy and share photos taken during a season of vacations and family reunions.
AlbumParty eliminates the need for consumers to understand complex technology in order to enjoy digital photography, and is the first service to focus on facilitating the process of uploading photos online to share with others that is rather complicated and involves many steps. The service features new, unique method to post pictures stored in the computer directly onto the web, which eliminates the hassle of sharing pictures using email or instant messenger.
Unlike other services available to consumers, AlbumParty seamlessly synchronizes photos online at iAlmond.com with photos in the user’s computer. After installation, AlbumParty automatically searches and arranges entire digital photo collections, sorting them in 5 different criteria: Albums, Time Period (Year & Month), Calendar, Age, and Camera Model, and with a simple step of drag & drop, users can carry out various actions with their photos such as uploading collections of photos to the photo albums in their personal homepages at iAlmond.com. The users do not need to feel insecure about posting personal photos on the web, since they can control the privacy settings of each album upon uploading and hence designate who has access to which photo albums.
With digital camera going mainstream, women are fast becoming the primary users as they have been with film photography, and iAlmond is focused on this segment. Despite the explosive growth of digital photography, consumers are struggling to get their pictures to share with friends and family once the shutter clicks. A Study by InfoTrends shows that two out of three consumers had trouble viewing images sent to them via email.
At a single click with AlbumParty, users are also able to view entire collection of photo albums of their family and friends who are members of iAlmond. As if browsing the photo albums of a friend upon visiting his or her place, AlbumParty allows users to enjoy photos of their family and friends along with titles and descriptions that make their experience more worthwhile.
“We are thrilled to offer our approximate 300,000 users a firsthand view of the superior benefits of AlbumParty software,” says founder Wonkyu Lee. “Now they can discover the complete digital photography solution, fully integrated with personal homepage, and just in time for the busy Christmas photo season.”
iAlmond’s personal homepage network continues to grow at a steady rate. In September, 2005, average of 7,000 new members joined into the service daily, an outstanding figure considering the site has been on air for only about 4 months.
iAlmond (http://www.ialmond.com) is provided by StarPals, of San Jose, California. iAlmond offers free personal homepages and a host of data security and social network management tools that combine Web publishing and social networking.
