Photodex, makers of the new video slideshow service ProShow Web, today announced a partnership with SmugMug to offer new, integrated solutions for creating and sharing HD video slideshows online. ProShow Web now seamlessly pulls photos and video clips from SmugMug galleries to create fully custom video slideshows online from any Mac or PC. Videos can be easily shared across a number of platforms and sent back to SmugMug to view in full 1080p HD video.
"We're very excited to be working with SmugMug in providing new solutions for creating and sharing HD video slideshows online," said Paul Schmidt, President and Founder of Photodex. "We have long been fans of their photo storage and sharing network and are very pleased to be working with them directly in expanding their HD video solutions for customers."
The partnership lets users of both services easily move their content between SmugMug and ProShow Web. Users on SmugMug's site can easily create a video directly from their galleries, while users on ProShow Web can easily import and export to SmugMug. This total integration helps photographers streamline their workflow by letting them upload photos just once - to SmugMug - then use them anytime in ProShow Web. With ProShow Web's unmatched speed and ease of use, combined with a simpler upload process, SmugMug users can now create shows even faster than before.
To create a video slideshow from SmugMug, users simply go to SmugMug's 'Buy' menu and choose 'ProShow Web' from the 'Create a Video' options. Users, along with their photos and videos, are instantly taken to ProShow Web to complete their video in just a few clicks. On ProShow Web, SmugMug users can complete their shows with over 50 stylish themes, royalty-free music, and the ability to drag and drop à la carte effects onto any photo or video, resulting in a truly customized video. Completed slideshows can be sent back to SmugMug in full 1080p HD video.
ProShow Web works by automatically mixing photos, video clips and music together into a polished video slideshow. It combines the ease of automatic slideshows with the power of custom effects. With true 1080p HD creation, ProShow Web can create professional-grade videos for use on SmugMug, or for downloading to a computer. For ultimate control, shows created online can be downloaded and opened in Photodex's award-winning, professional desktop software, ProShow Producer, to fine-tune and edit even further. Free video slideshows can be created by visiting ProShowWeb.com. For unlimited video creation, more options and higher quality downloads, users can opt for a Plus ($30/year) or Premium ($150/year) account. SmugMug offers Power ($60/year) and Pro ($150/year) accounts that enable unlimited HD video uploading and storage.
