PictureTrail Announces the Addition of Full Social Networking Capability

Photo sharing service now also offers the most popular community interaction options


Santa Clara, July 3, 2006 - PictureTrail, a popular photo sharing website, today announced the release of a full range of social networking options. In addition to a complete photo sharing portal - from slideshows to image editing to prints - the service now offers the most popular social networking options.

PictureTrail's new member profile pages include fields for member's personal information and interests, featured photos and friends areas.

Social networking is all about community interaction," said Val D'Souza, president of PictureTrail. "So in addition to the guestbooks, pic comments and "invite-a-friend' features of our photo sharing options, we've added new features." These new features include member messages, blogs, notice boards and a search function for finding other members based on varied criteria.

The portal also offers a complete clubs area, and already bustling forums pages. Another feature is the music selector, which offers over 700 songs from up and coming artists with album and band info.

"Most online community members employ the features of a photo sharing website to edit and organize imagery for their social networking accounts," said D'Souza. "They also usually link their social networking accounts back to their photo sharing sites. Now we offer the best of both worlds together in one account."

When combining existing services, fluidity of member and visitor experience can become complicated. But PictureTrail has integrated these popular social networking options into its existing photo sharing system. The company also spent months quality assurance testing user experience. This has ensured that members and visitors now have intuitive access to all account designing and viewing options.

Users can sign up for the service via the website, For an example of a PictureTrail homepage, go to
