Live Picture Inc., an Internet imaging firm in Campbell, CA said that 19 interactive design agencies announced support for the company's servers, which enable consumers to zoom in and examine products and other articles in detail.

The Internet advertising and design firms all said they will support their clients' choice of Live Picture Image Servers and Zoom images to boost Web sales and marketing results.

On July 13 Live Picture announced that 18 leaders in the retail, entertainment, travel, real estate, medical, and consumer electronic industries announced that they are using Live Picture Image Servers to maximize results online.

"These design firms are determining the look and feel of the Web--and are influencing to a great extent how consumers will access online storefronts and purchase products," said Kate Mitchell, president and CEO of Live Picture.

Live Picture Image Servers deliver high-resolution images as fast as typical JPEG images, but with crystal clarity and exceptional detail. Live Picture solutions enable users to zoom into the images for a closer look at ads for products for sale on the Web to make better informed purchasing decisions. The servers also enable companies to feature 360-degree panoramic images.

Live Picture said its Zoom images present consumers with a near tactile experience for Web shopping. Consumers shopping for new clothing, for instance, will be able to closely examine fabric weaves and colors. Graphic designers viewing stock photographs can also download images at the precise resolution they need.
