Tamron’s MyPhotoExhibits (MPE) app for iPad is an innovative way for photographers looking to showcase your favorite images in a unique, free online venue. Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron’s SoHo-like MPE interface, available at myphotoexhibits.com, allows you to create customizable 3D exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience.
The MyPhotoExhibits iPhone and iPad apps offer easy access to MPE wherever you may be. Through your iPhone and iPad, you can browse through all available MPE exhibits; view your own 3D exhibits; check out exhibits of other photographers that they may “follow”; and share your exhibits by sending out an e-mail or Facebook invite to friends.
MyPhotoExhibits is a creative way to transform the how your images are viewed and shared. You simply set up a user avatar and bio, upload your favorite high-resolution images, and create a personalized exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, you can put the finishing touches on your 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.
Once an exhibit is ready to “open,” it’s easy to share it with friends. You simply send out an invitation to your exhibit from the website or iPhone/iPad app to Facebook or other social media platforms, or by email. Your exhibits can be viewed by “invitation only” or 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 — you can even submit your own exhibits for consideration in this coveted “Featured by Tamron” category. To maximize photographers’ MPE experience, Tamron-created exhibits will also be prominently featured on the site to instruct you on how to take better photos.
