Online Photo Galleries
Commack, NY — Tamron USA, Inc., has announced the launch of MyPhotoExhibits (MPE), an innovative way for photographers looking to showcase their favorite images in a unique, free online venue. Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron’s SoHo-like MyPhotoExhibits.com, allows users to create customizable 3D exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience.
MyPhotoExhibits offers creativity in the way images are viewed and shared. Photographers simply set up an avatar and bio, upload their favorite high-resolution images, and create a personalized exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, users can put the finishing touches on their exhibit space, choosing from a variety of gallery spaces (wall and floor textures and colors), photo frames, furniture, and lighting options. It’s easy to go back into the MPE interface at any time to add more photos, tweak presentation specs, or create an unlimited number of new exhibits that feature travel pictorials, special events, projects, and more.
Spreading the word about these custom 3D exhibits is another way in which MyPhotoExhibits stands out from other online galleries. Once an exhibit is ready to “open,” it’s easy to share it with friends. Users simply send out an invitation by email or from the website or iPhone app to Facebook or other social media platforms inviting friends to their exhibit. Exhibits are viewed by “invitation only” or can remain open to the public. Viewers are able to sign the photographer’s guestbook, choose “favorite” exhibits and “follow” exhibiting photographers.
Visitors can check out all available public exhibits on the site or browse by category. Tamron will also suggest favorite exhibits for further photographic inspiration. Users can even submit their own exhibits for consideration in this coveted “Featured by Tamron” category. To maximize photographers’ MyPhotoExhibits experience, Tamron-created exhibits will also be prominently featured on the site to instruct users on how to take better photos.
Companion iPhone App for On-The-Go Viewing and Sharing
To enhance the convenience and user-friendliness of the MyPhotoExhibits site, a companion iPhone application is available. The MyPhotoExhibits app offers easy access to MyPhotoExhibits wherever users may be. Through their iPhone, users can browse through available MPE exhibits, view their own 3D exhibits, check out exhibits of other photographers that they “follow”, and share their exhibits by sending out an email or Facebook invite to friends.
