BOSTON, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, through a partnership with leading independent photographic press agency PRPhotos, the Shuttersong photo-audio app lets Beliebers, KatyCats, Directioners, Smilers and more create musical celebrity fan pix using exclusive, fully licensed photos of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, One Direction, Miley Cyrus and Austin Mahone. Fans can now purchase a pack of professional PRPhotos celebrity photo collection images for $1.99 and personalize them with fifteen seconds of music, voice or sound – like this Katy Perry example – and then share through text, email and their social networks.
The fully licensed Paparazzi images come from PRPhotos.com, which has over two million images under management. This is the latest addition to Shuttersong's growing commercial content library. What began with the launch of digital greeting cards from American Greetings, has grown to include exclusive branded content from Bare Tree Media, including the introduction of Garfield content in March 2014.
"We were fascinated by Shuttersong's pioneering technology and the way it lets fans unleash their creativity by bringing static images to life with music and sound," said Scott Burkhead, CEO of PRPhotos. "For fans, it's a great tool for showing their adoration for their favorite celebrities. And for the media covering them, it's a novel way to drive page views."
"Shuttersong's e-commerce and content capabilities continue to expand," said William Agush, founder and CEO of Shuttersong. "We've found that fans of all stripes – from cartoon lovers to celebrity enthusiasts – love having the ability to take high-quality images and embellish them with music and voice. This is the next wave of social imagery."
Shuttersong® was founded by marketing veteran William Agush who was inspired by a "talking photo frame" that played the toddler voice of his now-adult son. By bringing together a team of business, marketing and technical experts, Shuttersong was formed and backed by a group of financial investors that recognized the app's potential. Shuttersong's advisory board includes executives from AOL, Brilig/Merkle, Constant Contact, DART DoubleClick, HighStart Group, Ideeli, YP.com, Microtouch, Snickleways and AEG. Shuttersong is based in Wellesley, MA. Follow the company, as well as the many #Shuttersongs created, on Twitter at @shuttersong and on Facebook.
