dotPhoto announces the EuroBook, a new service for creating customized, hard-bound
digital photo books. EuroBook technology gives photographers unlimited creativity
and enables them to organize photos on their computer and preserve memories
in the form of premium hard-bound books, which are ordered online and delivered
in six to 10 business days. To coincide with the announcement, dotPhoto is also
offering free shipping on all EuroBooks ordered in July.



Available at www.dotphoto.com
or www.eurobook.us, there is no charge
to download or use the EuroBook software.



EuroBook software automatically groups photos by colors and texture, matches
backgrounds, and creates a book that looks professionally designed. Book designers
can also change any attribute of the book at any time prior to printing. With
over 200 page layouts and background options, the Eurobook software provides
complete control and flexibility. EuroBook also enables users to create pages
with an image as a background, as well as allowing the user to move, zoom, crop,
rotate, or tilt an image. Text options are available anywhere on the cover or
individual pages, and feature over 150 font styles. Because the software is
downloadable, users can create photo books offline without worrying about Internet
connections -- for instance, while traveling.



More interesting than traditional photo albums, customizable dotPhoto EuroBooks
are available in over 200 configurations that vary in size, features and price,
and bring a new quality standard to photo books. EuroBooks resemble "coffee
table"-style books with high-quality professional binding as well as 135
pound paper. Pricing begins at $9.95 for the 5x5 inch, 26-page book. The popular
Classic 8x11 inch EuroBook starts at $19.95. The Deluxe 11.6x11.6 inch EuroBook,
which is perfect for special occasions and presentations, starts at $68.95.
Pricing is also based on the number of pages and choice of cover material: soft
cover, hard cover, linen, premium linen, booklet and faux leather.



There are three simple steps in ordering a dotPhoto EuroBook:

· Download the free EuroBook software

· Create your book from your digital photos

· Place your order online

Sony Electronics has added two new models to its family of S-Frame digital photo frames—including the company’s first 10-inch model here at the PhotoPlus Expo trade show. The new 10-inch and 8-inch digital photo frames (models DPF-D100 and DPF-D80) have high-quality SVGA resolution (800 x 600 pixels) LCD screens. They are Sony’s first digital photo frames that offer a 4:3 aspect ratio.

This apect ratio eliminates borders around the digital photos and allows pictures to fill up the screen. Photos appear larger on theses frames’ displays than digital photo frames with the 16:9 aspect ratio.

In addition to providing high-quality LCD screens, these models have an advanced image processing feature that quickly decodes and displays images. The digital photo frames will dispay images that are up to 48 megapixels or files that are up to 100MB. The digital photo frames have 200MB of available capacity, so you can store hundreds of photos to the device and then return your memory card back to the camera.

Digital images can be loaded onto the internal memory of the digital photo frames from several types of flash memory cards, including Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick PRO Duo, SD Memory Card, MMC, Compact Flash,  Microdrive and xD-Picture Card.

Photos can also be transferred to the frames via a USB cable (not included) from a personal computer or digital camera. These two new S-Frame models support JPEG and RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW) image file formats.

The S-Frame models offer convenient features including the auto orientation sensor. The photo frame automatically detects whether it has been positioned horzonally or verically and then adjusts the display of the picture accordingly. When the frame is horizontal the Sony logo will light up. When the frame is vertical, the logo turns off and blends into the piano black finish.

Additional features include 10 slide show variations, clock and calendar views, and two index modes so you can preview several photos at once. You can also conserve energy by using the auto power on/off setting to program when you want the frame to turn on in the morning and off at night. Functions of the digital photo frame can be managed remotely using the included controller.

The DPF-D80 digital photo frame is now available for about $180 and the DPF-D100 model will be available in November for about $280. Both will be offered direct at sonystyle.com, at 43 Sony Style® retail stores around the country, and at hundreds of authorized dealers nationwide. Pre-orders are now being accepted for the DPF-D100 unit at sonystyle.com.
