eXaPhoto Inc. is a privately held Delaware corporation based in Dover, DE, and was established by president and CEO Patrick Serex, founder of FotoWire (merged with SilverLab, later acquired by HP), which invented “e-photofinishing.” eXaPhoto has developed an innovative and cost-effective solution for online photo sharing.  We are seeking partnerships with businesses that can leverage our solution.

eXaPhoto started operations in the Fall of 2003 with the goal of building the most cost effective photo sharing software available in the marketplace.  The design requirements required support for industry standards like SOAP Web Services, SQL database support, Mac, PC and ActiveX clients.  An intuitive, and easy to use web interface was also mandated.  A rich API was developed first to facilitate 3rd party integration and development.

Summer of 2005, early proof of concept testing began with a small group of clients.

Spring of 2006, eXaPhoto embarked on significant design improvements in anticipation of version 2.0.

February, 2009, eXaPhoto applied for patent protection with the USPTO.

Spring, 2009, eXaPhoto launched service with complete feature-set.

Summer, 2009, eXaPhoto Publisher for Mac OS X became available.

April, 2010,  eXaPhoto launched B-Viewer, a new concept in photosharing: turning the PC of one’s family and friends into a photo frame of BEST photos.

November, 2013 eXaPhoto Mobile Viewer launches on iTunes.
