KODAK Gallery and Slide, Inc., today announced a new service that enables Gallery’s 60 million members to seamlessly showcase their Gallery photos on their favorite social networks using Slide’s portable Slideshow product. With a combined Web audience of more than 200 million, the partnership brings together the world’s largest online photo service and personal media company.
Starting today, KODAK Gallery members will be able to transform their Gallery photos into portable slideshows with music and share them widely on the Web, including popular social networks and blog sites MySpace and Blogger. The co-branded service, located at www.slide.com/kodakgallery, is the first phase of a deeper Slideshow product integration that will be rolled out throughout the year.
“KODAK Gallery is committed to making it easy for our 60 million members to share their stories anywhere, whether it’s through photo gifts, on kodakgallery.com or on social networks,” said Madhav Mehra, chief operating officer and vice president of product marketing and management, KODAK Gallery. “We partnered with Slide because they’re pioneers in turning photos into tools for self expression and storytelling on social networks. We’re very excited that we can extend all the great sharing benefits of the Gallery to include this new product.”
Here’s how the service works:
1) Go to www.slide.com/kodak to view and choose Gallery photos
2) Personalize Slideshows with frames, backgrounds, music and other features
3) Share on MySpace or other social networks with one click
“Slide’s mission has always been about helping people express themselves through shared media across the Web,” said Keith Rabois, vice president of strategy and business development at Slide. “Kodak is well-known as an imaging innovator. We’re excited to partner with such an amazing brand to enable their members to share their pictures more broadly.”
