    SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 14 /EMWNews/ -- SRS Labs, Inc.

(Nasdaq: SRSL), the leading provider of surround sound, audio and voice

technologies, has announced a free "Photogram" widget that lets MySpace and

Facebook users enhance their online photographs by adding sound effects

enriched with SRS audio processing.


    The Photogram widget is a no-cost application developed by SRS Labs

that allows members of these popular social networking sites to add a wide

range of quality sound effects to the pictures they place on their social

media profile. The widget can be placed in the "comments" section of a

friend's page, or in the creator's "profile" section.

    For example, users can add the relaxing sounds of the beach to their

Hawaiian vacation photos, or add a new level of excitement by adding the

sound of applause to their child's dance recital photos. Some effects are

available in immersive surround sound, and all sounds have been enhanced

through SRS audio processing.

    Sound clips currently available include multiple selections in easy to

find categories such as "Emotions" (giggles, kisses); "Animal Sounds,"

"Nature," "Modern Life" (airplanes, traffic), "You're a Star" (applause,

drum roll), and "Cartoon Favorites."

Creating and posting the widget is a simple, 4-step process: 1. Select your photo image 2. Select a frame color to complement the your page color scheme 3. Select the SRS-enhanced sound clip 4. Post the finished Photogram widget, either on your 'profile' or 'friend's comment' section. The photogram automatically resizes photos to fit the frame, and it works with the most common photo formats -- JPEG, GIF, and PNG. "We developed the Photogram widget to give the interactive social networking crowd a creative and fun way to enhance the photos they share with family and friends," said Allen Gharapetian, VP of Marketing, SRS Labs. "Plus, this is a great way for us to bring awareness of the SRS audio experience to a vast new market looking for differentiation, authenticity and personalization."
