March 20, 2007 - Professional and amateur photographers alike can attest to the delicate, lengthy process of backing up digital photos. Precious memories are often at the mercy of sometimes-tenuous hard drives. Sharpcast Photos 1.0, released earlier this month, a desktop photo organizer that syncs a user’s PC to the Web and their mobile phones.
The interfaces of the Sharpcast Desktop Organizer and Web Album are drop-and-drag friendly, which allows for the easy transfer and arrangement of large photo files. The Desktop Organizer and Web Album mirror each other; new photos and edits made to photos automatically appear in both places. Cell phone shutterbugs can have their photos sent to the software. Photo collections are also viewable from mobile phones.
Other features include a photo widget, which can turn an album into a slideshow for a website or blog, import directly from digital cameras, and has the ability to share photos and chat with other Sharpcast Photo users.
Sharpcast offers free and subscription plans. The free plan allows users to store photos for 30 days at full resolution. After 30 days, the photos are resized to a 1600x1200 resolution. The subscription plan includes unlimited storage of full-resolution photos and is $5.99 per month or $64.99 per year.
