SmugMug, the most popular online destination for photo sharing, says it now supports Eye-Fi Card, the memory card that utilizes WiFi
networks to automatically send photos from a digital camera to online, in-home, and retail destinations.
A boon for photography enthusiasts, SmugMug enables easy sharing and storage of snaps. Galleries from over 350,000 members presently exist on SmugMug.
With Eye-Fi, SmugMug users can now upload photos from their digital cameras to SmugMug through their home WiFi networks. The Eye-Fi Card (www.eye.fi
) was launched for sale recently at online retailers like Amazon.com (News
), Buy.com, and Walmart.com which are offering Eye-Fi’s 2GB wireless SD memory card for $99.99.
“Our partnership with Eye-Fi makes sharing photos effortless,” explained Chris MacAskill, SmugMug president. “Photos automatically float from camera to SmugMug as they are taken.”
“We’ve eliminated the hassles and made it simple for users to upload photos to SmugMug. In fact, users don’t even have to turn on their computer for their photos to upload. We want them to be free to focus on printing and sharing their memories,” said Ziv Gillat, Eye-Fi’s co-founder and vice president of marketing and sales.
