Snapfish Breaks the Upload Barrier in Online Photo Processing
Now Email in Pictures Directly From Camera Phone or Computer
--Snapfish Upgrades Service: Offers Email Upload,
Powerful Free Photo Software and Poster Prints--
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - May 19, 2004 - Snapfish, the leading online photo service, announced today that it will now enable people to upload their images from camera phones as well as computers thru email. Snapfish's newest leap in online photo services also includes new and improved free photo software, and poster sized printing.
Building on its spectacular growth, the industry's best pricing and customer friendly printing and sharing services, Snapfish is the first major online photo service to allow people to email images directly to their Snapfish accounts, bypassing the need to upload through the website. Whether on a computer, camera phone or PDA, people can simply email their images to email@example.com. Once images are received and confirmed with a response email, Snapfish simply posts the images in the person's Snapfish account or creates a new one if they've never before used the service. From there, users can share the photos with family and friends or order film-quality prints for as low as 19¢.
"We have always wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to share their memories," said Raj Kapoor President and Co-Founder of Snapfish. "Now we have made a leap in the industry and enabled people to upload their photos by email. People are used to email, used to sending attached images to one another. Now they just add one more recipient to their email and we take care of the rest, whether photos are sent from their computer, phone or other email enabled device."
As a further service enhancement Snapfish now offers powerful new photo management and display software, Snapfish PhotoShow Express, a $29.99 value, for free download. Snapfish PhotoShow Express makes it easy for people to manage and show images on their desktop as well as augment and edit images for sharing and printing.
