Pictures have a great emotional value. An old adage says – a picture is worth thousand words. But what if a new dimension is added to the pictures? Well, in that case, it would be worth many more words. For instance, what if you could add voice to the pictures.

There is an app called Voxweb that allows users to capture emotions with the image and lets them send it via the app to their contacts. This new method ensures that the images received are more vivid and state much more than an ordinary photo sharing tool.
Although videos too depict emotions, it is marred with numerous problems, namely amount of data that it takes up, and the amount of data that is wasted in downloading the videos etc. Audio adds a new dimension to the images and makes sure that the recipient gets a clearer and better perspective of the message.

Speaking pictures is akin to how digitalization changed the industry of audio and video records by replacing vinyl records forever. It is pretty clear that the field of image capturing and sharing is headed for resurgence thanks to this novel concept.
With the launch of this app, users across the globe are sending speaking selfies to each other – right from Eiffel tower to the London bridge. Human emotion is now one of the biggest segment. It involves social media, entertainment and so on, and speaking pictures are just an addition to it. With so much of addition over conventional photo sharing, it is bound to garner a lot of fanfare. While there is no doubt that the concept is going to work in the long run, the challenge is to know how long will it take to garner fanfare and make up for the lion’s share among 350 million odd image uploads on the internet.
With that said, the concept is brilliant and speaking pictures is the 21st century way of image sharing. Voxweb is putting up considerable resources in acquiring a lot of users, and making sure that people switch onto the new way of capturing images.
