Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 1, 2006
Pure Networks, Inc., creator of Network Magic (http://www.networkmagic.com ) and leading provider of home networking software and services, today announced Network Magic PhotoCast, a new feature for PC home network users that simplifies photo sharing with “networked” friends and family. Easy to install, PhotoCast automatically “casts” photos from user’s shared folders on their Network Magic personal website and delivers a unique slideshow of photos that can be viewed by friends and family on their PC desktops. Pure Networks has teamed with Shutterfly, the leading independent online photo service to make it easy for users to print and create photo products using Shutterfly’s extensive product offerings via a direct link from PhotoCast. Network Magic users can download PhotoCast free at http://www.networkmagic.com.
PhotoCast expands on Network Magic’s Net2Go functionality which enables consumers to share photos via a Network Magic personal Web site. Pure Networks also connects to Shutterfly, the leading independent online photo service, through Shutterfly’s image uploading APIs. Through this new partnership, Network Magic users can upload their pictures from PhotoCast directly to their Shutterfly accounts and easily purchase prints and photo related products. Other PhotoCast features include full screen or resizable screen viewing, saving and printing pictures locally, creating transparent pictures, and archiving photo history.
PhotoCast is a product developed within Pure Network’s new Network Magic Labs project team. “Our Network Magic Labs team is continually looking for ways to bring innovative features and functionality to home networking,” said Brett Marl, Pure Networks CTO and Lab Chief. “Our goal is to help Network Magic users leverage and unlock the power of the Network Magic platform, and in the case of PhotoCast, share and manage their content.
