JUPITERMEDIA'S JUPITERIMAGES DIVISION LAUNCHES NEW, CUTTING-EDGE SEARCH ENGINE(New York, NY - July 25, 2006) - Jupitermedia Corporation's (Nasdaq: JUPM) Jupiterimages division has completed all testing phases and has launched a powerful new search engine on its Jupiterimages Web site (www.jupiterimages.com).
The new search engine was built with key input from Jupiterimages' customers and delivers the critical features they need, including the ability to find images with and without people and by gender, age and ethnicity. The new Jupiterimages.com search engine also enables search by the subjects' emotions (i.e., subject is angry, content, frustrated, happy, laughing, sad, serious or worried) and by the subject looking at or away from the camera. Other new search features let customers find images with no nudity, indoors vs. outdoors, images available on CDs and images that are 50 MB or larger. Also, a new tabbed layout lets customers jump quickly between royalty-free and rights-managed search results, and a new browse capability lets users include and exclude various filters to dramatically change their results.
"We've learned from our customers that searching for images has become increasingly frustrating, as hundreds of thousands of new images with varying keyword/metadata formats have been made available. Our new search engine provides helpful and intuitive filters that simplify and improve the search process," stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation. "In fact, one of our largest clients remarked that 'the new search engine doesn't require the user to be an expert that understands the nuances of how to find images. It empowers everyone with the tools to find the image they are looking for', which is exactly what we were hoping to achieve with this new search engine," added Meckler.
