Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from dotPhoto, Inc.

    EWING, N.J., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- dotPhoto, Inc.
 (http://www.dotphoto.com), the leading online photo-sharing and digital
 photography community, announces its pro bono efforts to make available
 high-resolution, digital photos of Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic's
 National Achievement Awards (NAA) gala, hosted by actor Danny Glover, honoring
 students with print disabilities.
     The event, taking place on Monday, April 30, 2001, at The Essex House in
 New York City, spotlights six outstanding students and other noteworthy
 individuals who make a difference, including U.S. Representative C.W. Bill
 Young of Florida, a valiant champion of students with print disabilities
 throughout his public service career.
     "We are honored to help Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic distribute
 photos of this event to the media in a timely basis," says Glenn Paul,
 co-founder and CEO of dotPhoto, Inc.  "It is far easier to use dotPhoto's
 photo-sharing services with the addition of sound, than to create a special
 Web page to display these photos spontaneously.  We provide photo enhancement,
 detailed stills, quick thumbnails, addition of captions and print-quality
 files for immediate download."
     News organizations will be able to download photos of the winners
 receiving their awards through Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic's Web site
 at http://www.rfbd.org/NAA.htm, which will have a link to the RFB&D album on
 dotPhoto's e-Commerce engine http://www.dotphoto.com.
     "Our National Achievement Awards recognize the accomplishments of students
 who have used diversity and disability to reinforce character and motivation,"
 says Richard O. Scribner, Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic's president and
 CEO.  "They are role models not only for people with disabilities but for all
 of us who endeavor to reach our full potential as students and citizens."
