*Fotobabble’s Enables Talking Photos
Fotobabble has launched as a new service that allows users to add voice to photos in seconds with just a few clicks on a Web browser or an iPhone. Voices can be added to photos stored on a computer, or those that are in an iPhone.
“There are tens of billions of static photos on the web without a voice or sound,” said Kamal Shah, CEO of Fotobabble.
“Three billion photos are uploaded to Facebook each month alone. Using Fotobabble, people and businesses can greatly enhance these images with the energy and emotion of voice.”
Free to use, it only takes seconds to create and share a “Fotobabble.” Users simply upload a photo and record their voice directly through their computer’s microphone to create a talking photo. Or on an iPhone, after downloading the free Fotobabble app, users simply select an existing photo or a snap a new one, hit record and it is done.
Fotobabble takes photo sharing to a new level. There is no software to download, Fotobabble supports PCs and Macs, as well as the iPhone, and makes it easy for people to create talking photos and to share them with a few close friends or with the whole world.
*Fotobabble: Add Audio to Your Pics
We’ve recently come across an app that literally brings its users “talking pictures.”
Essentially, Fotobabble attaches an audio caption to any image you can upload. It’s a cute, fun way to share and narrate photos with friends, and could even be useful for certain kinds of online businesses – for example, photographers who wanted to explain more information about a particular shot or online retailers who wanted to give potential customers details about a product. Can Fotobabble accomplish these tasks better with audio than conventional text-based captions do now? Read on and tell us what you think
Currently, users can choose to share their creations across a wide variety of social networks or email; however, autosharing is not built in. The app is available as a web app for PC/Mac/etc. and as an iPhone app.
We do wish that Fotobabble would let users audio-caption pics from Facebook, Flickr photo streams or elsewhere on the Web. Ensuring ownership would be easy enough, as well, through Flickr’s API or Facebook Connect.While we’re on that subject, account creation should be possible through Facebook Connect or Twitter OAuth. Ideally, we’d also want to be able to create slide shows and sets or groups of pics.

*Fotobabble Adds Your Voice to Your Photos
You’ve probably noticed that while there’s no shortage of Web services that will showcase your photos or videos, not many of them allow you to narrate your photos without forcing you to turn them into a video.
If you’ve ever wanted to add a voice note instead of a text caption to your photos, or narrate a slideshow of your own photos, take a look at new service Fotobabble. It allows you to add your voice or sound to your photos on the Web so your friends and family can see your photos and hear your voice at the same time.
To make use of Fotobabble’s voice narration, you have to host your gallery at Fotobabble. Once you have your photos uploaded there, you can record a voice caption or voice note and attach it to the image.
You can then share it with friends, either by sending them a link to visit your image or pasting the embed code into your own site so visitors can play it without leaving the page. The service also supports one-click posting to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and over a dozen other social networks and services.
The service touts itself as a way for users to add a little personal flair to their photos and galleries in way unlike any other photo hosting site, a way to send personalized multimedia greetings, or even as a way for burgeoning citizen journalists to record and recount what they saw as they snapped the photo they uploaded.
Upon browsing the site however, the bulk of the Fotobabbles posted are personal photos or images uploaded from other sites with silly or otherwise non-descriptive voices behind them. I did find one user who uploaded and narrated his trip to downtown Vancouver for the Olympics, which was interesting to see.
Fotobabble is a neat idea; though it just combines a Flash audio recorder and player with a pretty simple gallery, the way it integrates those two features let it stand out. The interface is clean, and the tools are easy to use, which makes it easier for people looking for a little something more than a standard image gallery
