INTRODUCING THE "ANTI" PHOTO SHARING SITE – SHOZAM WEB GALLERY GENERATOR IS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT CONTROL, NOT COMMUNITY
For the First Time, Anyone can Create their own Photo Web Site and Post to any Web Host. Shozam Web Galleries are Easy to Personalize, Update or Move. Fast to Upload.
BELLEVUE, WA, July 18, 2007 – Komotion, Inc., the makers of the popular, award-winning Web Gallery Wizard™, today announced the release of Shozam™ Web Gallery Generator which automatically creates web galleries to showcase photos, video and other digital media. Shozam is an alternative to photo sharing sites that require users to upload content and relinquish control in favor of the community – at the expense of the individual. These sites make money from user-generated content by locking in their customers and growing the community to create more advertising revenue. Shozam puts content ownership back in the hands of consumers. It is a software tool that lets users create and control their own multimedia web galleries.
In just minutes, Shozam enables consumers to create a website of their lives, and tell their story, complete with photos, video, narration, music and text. Users import and arrange media, write captions and descriptions, add audio and select a professionally-designed theme. With the click of a button, Shozam generates a website with seven different page layouts, including a slideshow view, which users can upload to any webhost. It's that easy – and it's fast. Shozam automatically optimizes images, and the entire gallery is uploaded at one time. This process is up to 40 times faster than submitting original photos to a photo sharing service.
“Why would anyone give up ownership of their images, and let others take control and make money from them?“ said Razvan Neagu, President and CEO of Komotion. “Shozam eliminates the need for online photo sites which can over-compress photos, clutter the site with ads, impose restrictions, or require minimum purchases of add-ons like prints and calendars. If the service goes out of business, the gallery – and the work and time that went into it – can disappear. Even worse, precious photos can be lost. With Shozam, users create their own photo websites and stay in control of their media.”
Available in five editions, Shozam Web Gallery Generator starts at just $24.95 and grows with a user's needs, from simple photo gallery creation to a full-featured website with image protection, shopping cart and more.
