"Group Albums are designed to offer a simple way for colleagues, friends, and families to collaborate on creating photos and video collections where the entire group can contribute, access, and enjoy them," Photobucket President Alex Welch explained in a statement Tuesday. Photobucket released its first developer application program interface (API) last month.
If you simply can't wait for Anywhere I Lay My Head, the album of Tom Waits covers as sung by sultry actress Scarlett Johansson, you're in luck. Although it isn't in full release until next week, social-media site Imeem is streaming the album live in advance.
You can't actually download it, but you can listen to the whole thing for free, and judge whether she does justice to the Waits classics or just totally botches them. As a Tom Waits fan, I'm curious to find out.
Streaming-music sites have become a hot spot for album … Read more
Canon just added two new players to its roster of Selphy portable photo printers: the CP770 and CP760, both heavily marketed to families interested in printing photos directly off their phones and digital cameras. We liked its full-size sibling, the Selphy CP740, so we're looking forward to checking these out.
Let's take a look:
$100 Familiar rectangular shape 2.5-inch color TFT screen Features Canon's "Portrait Image Optimize" technology for light photo fixes on the go. Print resolution: 300x300 dpi Connects via PictBridge, USB, IrDA, or directly through memory card slots
Selphy CP770: … Read more
"All good things come to an end," a placeholder on the Hello.com home page says. "So it is with sadness that we say goodbye to Hello." Guess they weren't so sad that they felt the need to steer clear of goofy plays on words. Hello will fade away on May 15, though Google's photo-sharing service Picasa remains otherwise intact.
"We originally embarked on a mission to … Read more
For the woman who gave you life, you can help her keep all her old memories this Mother's Day with this digital picture converter. Looking a little like a small paper shredder, this device lets you feed in photographs which will then be converted into a format you can edit on a PC.
We know what you're thinking--a scanner can do exactly the same thing for much cheaper. But honestly, we don't think anyone will relish trying to teach their mom how to use a flatbed scanner and Photoshop Elements for resizing, cropping, and touch-ups. This solution … Read more
MagToo is a service for creating really simple slide shows and interactive panoramic photos you can share on your blog or social-networking profile or by e-mail. To help put what you share into context, MagToo also throws in geotagging, letting you stamp any of the content you've added with a specific place where it was taken. Other users can then browse through the items on a large world map like they would photos and videos on Flickr.
Of all the tools my favorite is the panorama maker. While I couldn't get any of the three tests I did … Read more
Given the apparent glut in digital picture frames, it behooves manufacturers to try something different when entering this packed market. So Sony Japan deserves at least a bit of credit for offering a multi-functional version.
The VGF-CP1 can play MP3s, has 512MB of memory, and is capable of receiving news feeds and downloading photos from online albums through a Wi-Fi connection, according to Newlaunches. And unlike those lame analog "Photo Frame Speakers," it has a pair built into the frame around its 7-inch screen.
The downside is its price: Sony is releasing it on the Japanese market for … Read more
Update: Adobe has informed us that while the new Flickr connection isn't live yet, it will be very soon. We will provide another update when we have confirmed that it is live.
When Adobe launched Photoshop Express at the end of March, it indicated that Flickr support would be next on the agenda, and today the company can cross that item off its to-do list. With the capability to round-trip photos into PSE for editing and back out to its site, Flickr joins Facebook, Photobucket, and Picasa in the ranks of Photoshop Express supporters. Additionally, users of Photoshop Express … Read more
Is it a Google Phone? Is it the 3G iPhone? Is it something MacGyver put together using a matchbox and his pants? Nope, it's none of those, it's HTC's latest smart phone, the Touch Diamond, which aims to take a bite out of Apple's iPhone cake.
We headed down to its launch today to give it a quick once over and see if this Windows Mobile phone can keep up with the competition. We even took some photos so you can have a proper gander at it--how thoughtful we are.
It's due out in June … Read more
We know, it's just what the world needs--another digital photo frame. But this one's different, honest. At least a little bit.
Kenko's KDF-07 may look like an ordinary 7-inch screen, as seen on Fareastgizmos, but it hides a secret control panel that slides out from the side then retracts when not in use to maintain the sleek look of the frame in silver, black matte, and wood grain finishes. That's hardly enough reason to charge $160 on the Japanese market for a product that has comparable competition for less money and more features from other other … Read more
