Victoria, British Columbia — April XX, 2005 – How2Share Technologies Inc., creators of PiXPO image sharing software, announced the launch of a Portal-based website that offers interactive photo sharing capabilities and enables simple personal photo postcard sharing from any browser. PiXPO is the first media sharing site to combine traditional photo hosting with media centric file sharing techniques to allow consumers to share and access images through either web or desktop based applications.
Developed based on the company’s proprietary peer to peer sharing technology, PiXPO changes the way pictures, photos, graphic and image files are shared. With PiXPO users can create private photo albums with one-click, search and browse high resolution images in private or public albums, share photos and video files instantly and chat about them with friends, family and colleagues.
PiXPO stands apart from other photo sharing applications as users can easily browse, preview and share all personal photos instantly with friends, family and colleagues around the world. The new web Portal makes PiXPO the only real time image sharing tool on the market, surpassing both speed and security capabilities of other popular photo sharing sites such as Flickr (Yahoo!), Ofoto (Kodak), SnapFish(HP) and Picasa (Google).
InfoTrends Research Group reported that 40% of Americans own a digital camera and that nearly 70% rank the sharing of digital images the number one objective in going digital. With extensive picture viewing, management, and sharing features, firewall routing, and patent pending FindAlike PiXPO meets the growing consumer demand for sophisticated personal image sharing technology.
President and CEO of How2Share Technologies, Colin How said, “My mother in law could never get enough pictures of the grandkids from a hosted solution. Now with PiXPO she can browse the thousands of photos directly on my PC then download and print the ones she wants. PiXPO provides unlimited photo sharing.”
Winner of the 2005 Editor’s Choice award from PC Magazine for “best photo-sharing software”, PiXPO can be downloaded from www.PiXPO.com. Visitors to the site can search a global database of pictures, view public photo galleries, send e-postcards to friends and family, and download PiXPO image sharing software for a complete media sharing experience.
PiXPO is the leader in next generation personal media sharing. PiXPO is developing the world’s most advanced media sharing network, and is poised to capitalize on the pent-up consumer demand to share personal video and picture files.
PiXPO combines complex server technologies with modern file sharing techniques to allow consumers to share and access media through either web or desktop based applications.
PiXPO is the first company to allow picture and video sharing, in a secure, fast, and easy to use manner.
