Austin TX, February 10, 1999 - Austin-based digital imaging software company Photodex Corporation today announced a partnership with online greeting card developer Digital Greetings (www.digitalgreeting.com). Photodex has contracted Digital Greetings to provide a range of online services for its growing community of digital imaging aficionados, including a full range of online greeting cards just in time for Valentine's Day. The cards can be found at Photodex' graphics community site, www.graphicswiz.com, and are a free service for all users.
"Because we distribute our digital content manager software product almost exclusively online, it makes sense for us to enhance the online experience of our customers and give them a reason to return to our site," said Paul Schmidt, Photodex founder and VP of Development. "We provide all kinds of information based around graphics management to our customers, and providing access to what we believe is the best online greetings service available is a natural extension of that."
Digital Greetings, also based in Austin, has a long association with Photodex, having standardized on Photodex' CompuPic 4.0 Digital Content Manager software to manage and manipulate its library of more than 20,000 images, including original art from cutting edge artists around the country.
"By using the underlying CompuPic technology, we were able to organize and build a greeting card site for Photodex quickly and easily," said Digital Greetings developer David Eddy. "The key to any imaging job, whether it's doing your family Christmas cards or building a commercial site like this, is knowing what and where your content is. That's where CompuPic was invaluable."
With users ranging from individuals managing the family photos to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, CompuPic 4.0 enables people to streamline, manage, edit and rapidly view all popular image types. CompuPic also allows users to easily edit images, including adding text captions, comic strip-style talk bubbles, image correction and other features. CompuPic has a list price of $39.95 and can be downloaded from www.photodex.com, www.download.com, www.beyond.com and other software distribution sites. It can also be ordered via phone direct from Photodex on 1-800-377-4686.
Photodex helps consumers and professional photographers create unique slideshows that transform their digital memories into something special. The ProShow family of HD slideshow tools is used by millions of people to turn their photos and videos into amazing stories for any screen at home, online and on-the-go. With more than 25 years of digital imaging experience, we're serious about slideshows and dedicated to delivering exceptional products, support and service to our customers.
