Web’s Leading Standalone Photo Site Makes Photo Sharing Fast and Easy For Verizon Wireless Customers
Basking Ridge, NJ & San Francisco, Calif. — November 13, 2008 — Verizon Wireless, the nation’s leading wireless provider, and Photobucket (http://photobucket.com), the Web’s premier standalone photo and video-sharing site, today announced the availability of a new mobile photo service on select Verizon Wireless handsets that enables Verizon Wireless customers to easily send photos from a mobile device to a Photobucket album. The application will launch exclusively for Verizon Wireless customers and is available for download from Verizon Wireless mobile storefront by texting ‘photob’ to 2777, in the Community and Sharing category of the Verizon Wireless Get It Now catalog or by visiting http://photobucket.com/mobile.
Here are some questions you may have about the Photobucket Mobile Uploader, which launched today for Verizon customers:
We're excited to be part of the updated Windows Live Services announcement with Microsoft tonight. Anything that makes photo sharing easier is good for all of us. Photobucket will be an integrated photo partner in Windows Live Services.
24 Redemption Photos on Photobucket
Photobucket (http://photobucket.com), the premier stand-alone photo and video-sharing site, today announced that it is the premier online destination for behind-the-scenes photographs taken during filming of Fox’s “24:Redemption – Captured in Africa”. “24” fans, art enthusiasts and photography buffs around the world can now visit Photobucket to view select photographs from the full photo exhibit at the Paley Center for Media, as well as additional photographs which are available for viewing only online. Photobucket users can also extend the “24:Redemption” experience to their personal or group albums by applying a custom “24:Redemption” theme to the background of their personal albums.
We were watching a rather clever Photobucket user at work last night. She was using the built-in scrapbook tool on Photobucket to make a collage for her laptop desktop background picture.
We liked the idea so much, we wanted to share it with you too!
Go into the scrapbook tool — click "scrapbooks" in the top menu bar.
Play with different backgrounds, stickers, themes. If you don’t like any of the built-in themes, start with something blank. Be sure to choose "get stickers" and "get backgrounds" to get lots and lots of new stuff.
There are hundreds of stickers to play with! Our Photobucket user thought they were really fun.
Drag and drop pics of your favorite things onto the page.
Just save one page (you can delete the others).
In Photobucket, you’ll see a static JPG of the collage saved in its own album inside your account. Use that JPG as your desktop background. It looks great!
Since launching our scrapbook integration with Scrapblog in August, hundreds of thousands of scrapbooks have been made on Photobucket.
Now we have worked with Scrapblog to integrate printing as well. Our friends at Scrapblog provided us boxes of samples of the kinds of books and cards they print, and they are, well, fabulous!
Print Cards With Scrapblog Designs
We are excited about the cards you can print on Scrapblog. Using Scrapblog’s top quality designs, you can drag and drop your own images into the pre-built layouts, and print up cards that are much, much better than your regular "stick a photo in a designed border" holiday greeting card. These cards will make your holiday greetings really look amazing!
Print Memory Books with Scrapblog
Of course the traditional perception of scrapbooks is memory books. But forget the stickers, scissors and glue. (Who the heck has time for that anyway?) Just drag and drop photos and images into Scrapblog’s pre-built designs, and print them out. They will look gorgeous!
Lots of Holiday Designs
There are plenty of holiday designs to choose from. They make great inexpensive and beautifully personal gifts.
