Animoto Video
Now you can create Animoto Videos from your albums on Expono. It’s both fun and easy!

If you have never tried Animoto before I urge you to check it out. It’s very simple and takes nearly no effort to create a video. The following test video was created in less than a minute.

Expono Aperture Plugin

Finally! Thanks to the effort by Martin Jonsson, you can now export photos from within Apple Aperture to Expono. I know many of you have asked for an Aperture Plugin and now it’s here. Martin has been kind to provide this for FREE. Download the Expono Aperture Plugin or check out the software page for more Expono plugins.

Linking or embedding a photo
It’s easy to link and embed a photo on your blog, forum or other sites. Just look for a link with the “Link to this photo” on your photo page.

    The Expono Downloader for Windows, Mac and Linux v1.0 is here!

    Expono Downloader is simple application that let’s you download all your photos with one click, or select photos from a specific album to download. Auto-organize your photos in folders based on the album structure on expono. Cancels download without corrupting files. Choose to save the files in the Original Filename or the Expono Filename (global unique).

    The purpose of this app is to make it easy to restore lost photos, or just retrieve all your originals from Expono. Future releases might include more advanced features such as, the ability to download meta data (comments, tags etc) related to a photo. Or, even download photos from friends accounts. But for now, it’s a “insurance” app for our users to easily restore the content they upload. Using Expono as an online backup now makes more sense with this application available.
