Platform for Professional Photographers Provides Members Access to One Click Uploader Utility

MONTEREY, CA - 6SIGHT - October 25, 2006 - Digital Railroad, Inc., a leading provider of Web-based application services for the professional photography industry, announced support for iView MediaPro from iView Multimedia Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft Corp., providing its members new tools and streamlined workflows. The first result of this support is a powerful upload utility that enables Digital Railroad members a one-click solution for transferring image files from an iView MediaPro catalog directly into their Digital Railroad archives.

iView MediaPro enables digital photographers to quickly and easily import, sort, organize, edit, publish, annotate and archive large volumes and many different types of digital files. Digital Railroad support for iView MediaPro allows members to streamline and automate their editing processes. MediaPro allows users to repurpose IPTC metadata from a MediaPro catalog to Digital Railroad member archives, eliminating repetitive production steps like entering metadata twice. MediaPro can also quickly and easily convert a variety of image file formats, such as RAW, into the JPEG and TIFF formats for uploading to Digital Railroad.

"At Digital Railroad, we're always focused on providing more tools to streamline our members' workflow processes," said Evan Nisselson, Digital Railroad CEO/Founder and a professional photographer. "We are excited to work with iView, which will allow our members to minimize redundant steps, increase productivity and shorten time to market their images.”

"As a Digital Railroad member and an iView MediaPro user, I am looking forward to using this new service," said Ed Kashi, photojournalist and co-author of Aging in America: The Years Ahead. "As a photojournalist, more seamless connection of both products will help enormously in my digital workflow, giving me more time for reporting and making pictures."

"The iView MediaPro team is dedicated to helping professional photographers maximize their digital assets, from cataloguing to publishing," said Yan Calotychos, founder of iView Multimedia. "The launch of the free Digital Railroad uploader means MediaPro customers can now automatically upload their stock from a MediaPro catalog directly to Digital Railroad member archives, speeding delivery time for their images to the world's leading photo agencies and publications."

The upload utility will be available November 1, 2006 and can be accessed at
