Have camera phone? Smugmug to share photos
A new service allows camera phone users to e-mail photos directly from their mobile phone to automatically create and update online albums.

Smugmug is a new service that allow users of camera phone to share photos with friends, family, and business associates directly from a phone to their online photo gallery. The new capabilities are included free with any smugmug.com subscription.

Camera phone photographers can e-mail their pictures, along with any captions they may wish to add, to their smugmug.com account. Smugmug's new software engine automatically arranges the images into online albums for immediate sharing and later customization.

"Camera phones are wildly popular and are enabling everyday cell phone users to capture special or opportune moments and images that might have otherwise passed because a traditional camera was not available," said Chris MacAskill, co-founder of Smugmug. "Now, it's easier to share a picture from a phone than to place a call, and we developed a way for cell phone subscribers to store and share all of their photographs directly from the camera without ever having to use a PC."

A new study from InfoTrends Research Group projects that worldwide unit sales of camera phones will reach nearly 150 million in 2004. Sales of camera phones are expected to experience a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 55% through 2008 to 656 million units. Rapid adoption of camera phones worldwide will generate an additional 29 billion digital images captured this year.

"Worldwide camera phone sales will account for just over a quarter of all mobile phone sales this year," said Jill Aldort, Senior Research Analyst of Internet Imaging Trends at InfoTrends Research Group. "More consumers are purchasing camera phones -- some as their first digital camera -- and are experimenting with taking, sending, and even printing photos. Smugmug is providing these users with an easy way to share and store their photos alongside with their collection of other images saved at Smugmug."
