Austin TX, March 23, 2001 - Photodex Corporation, a leading graphics software publisher, today launched the PictureCD.com website. This site offers a location for photofinishers to upload images scanned for Picture CDs using the Photodex Picture CDTM .
"This site offers no print services as that is a major revenue stream for our clients (photofinishers). We feel that a strong relationship with or clients is more important than competing with them on print services. We are a software publisher, our business model is to make money selling software, not prints." said David Eddy, VP Product Development for Photodex Corporation.
The site, PictureCD.com, is customizable to compliment the packaging that the Picture CD software creates, real time. Just before the software calls for the CD to be burned, it communicates with and uploads to the PictureCD.com server. An e-mail notification is then supplied to the customer with a direct link to the pictures online. Also included on the Packaging, and in the contents of the CD, is an upload ID allowing the customer to go directly to the images stored on the PictureCD.com site.
The Photodex Picture CD software has been distributed for over 2 years on millions of Picture CDs with agreements with Pakon (a Kodak subsidiary), Snapfish.com, and other private labels. Developed with the knowledge of a profitable consumer graphics program, CompuPic, the Photodex development team introduced the Photodex Picture CD as a simple and inexpensive solution to provide custom Picture CDs.
