AOL is integrating with Photobucket, Picasa and Webshots to give BlueString users the ability to easily access photo and video assets stored on these sites and use them to share, create and collaborate with friends on multimedia shows within the BlueString application. In addition, an agreement with Eye-Fi will allow users to automatically upload photos from their cameras to their BlueString accounts using wireless networks.
BlueString is an all-in-one online destination that offers users a single location to preserve, access, and create with photos, videos and music for free. Over the next few weeks, separate Photobucket, Picasa Web Albums and Webshots tabs will appear within the BlueString application, and give users immediate access to personal media stored on those sites. Users will be able to easily drag and drop photos and videos from those sites into their BlueString accounts to create multimedia shows, without uploading the files a second time.
Additionally, BlueString will work with Eye-Fi, makers of a wireless memory card for digital cameras. The Eye-Fi Card allows users to wirelessly send photos from their camera to their BlueString accounts, using their home Wi-Fi network.
