Boulder, CO—As part of its strategy to enable consumers to order prints through the LifePics Network from anywhere digital photos are stored and shared, LifePics announced the beta release of its Facebook Photo Ordering App, which allows Facebook users to order prints of their Facebook photos through any photofinisher in the LifePics Retail Network.
The company also released its LifePics for iPhone app, which enables iPhone users to order prints within the app and pick the prints up at any retailer in the LifePics Network, often within an hour. The app is free to download and works on the iPad and iPod Touch. Using the app, consumers can choose which print sizes and quantities to order based on a retailer’s offerings.
The Facebook Photo Ordering App is the latest release from the LifePics OPEN Program, and LifePics says it is the only app that allows people to order Facebook photos through a network of thousands of local photofinishing labs around the world, and pick up the prints often within an hour, or have them delivered by mail.
Until recently, the resolution of Facebook photos limited the quality of prints that photofinishers could produce. However, Facebook users can now upload higher resolution photos, a feature that benefits users of the app and retailers in the LifePics Network who can now receive orders for larger prints of Facebook photos. ??
“During our initial testing phase for our Facebook Photo Ordering App, the number one complaint we had from users was that the resolution of their Facebook photos was too low for good quality prints 8×10 and up. Now, with the new higher resolution uploading option, that issue goes away,” said Vahe Christianian, vice president, Sales and Business Development, LifePics. “Now, people can print their Facebook photos to preserve and enjoy memories anytime, even when they are not in front of a computer or sorting through Facebook photo albums on their mobile phones. Our new app connects over 80 billion photos stored in Facebook accounts to our network, creating a new revenue stream for our retailers.” lifepics.com
