April 27, 2007 - Kingston Technology Company, Inc., maker of flash memory products, yesterday announced a new SD card that automatically transfers photos from a digital camera to a computer and then to the Shutterfly, an online photo sharing website. The 1GB Kingston Photo Loader Card comes pre-loaded with software developed by mobile tech company MacroPort that automatically uploads the photos.
"The Photo Loader Card is the latest example of our company’s commitment in the digital photography arena," said Kingston Flash marketing manager Jaja Lin in a company press release yesterday. "We believe this all-in-one solution on a Kingston card is a win-win for consumers," said Lin.
The Kingston Loader Card works by placing the SD card in a PC-enabled card reader. The MacroPort PhotoPlay software then downloads the photos, automatically transferring them from the memory card to the PC, and then uploads the photos to the user's Shutterfly account.
The Kingston Photo Loader Card is compatible with Windows XP and Internet Explorer 5.0 and higher. The Photo Loader Card (model number #SD/1GB-SMP) retails for $12.99 and is currently available only at Amazon.com. Customers will also receive 25 free prints from Shutterfly with purchase.
