October 12, 2011: Photo Direct has announced several new enhancements to the Lifepics online photo ordering system.
The first is the release of six creative ‘slideshows’ for consumer use (pictured right). These include Wall 3D, Thumbnail Slide, Stack Album, Simple Scale, Pan & Zoom and Simple Thumbnail views. The slideshow views are more appealing than previous versions, providing consumers with an engaging way of viewing photos stored online.
Lifepics also announced the release of new integrations with Flickr and Photobucket. Consumers can now import photos from Flickr and Photbucket accounts into their online Lifepics photo account. Once imported, customers can order prints of Flickr and Photobucket photos, or use them on creative products, like photo books, cards or photo gifts.
Photo Direct has further advised that the latest version of the Lifepics ‘View & Order Photos’ Android app (pictured below left) is now available for download.
The new version includes the ‘camera roll’ which allows users to access photos stored on the device from within the app, a multiple-image upload feature plus a range of ‘user-experience enhancements’. As always, customers can order prints from wallet size to 11×14-inch and pick them up in-store.
