Fotobounce and LifePics today announced a marketing partnership to promote their digital photo solutions across North America, enabling consumers to easily organize, share and print their favorite photos. The partnership was developed by Fotobounce via the LifePics OPEN program, a public API program that allows developers and partners to create mobile and software photo apps that send consumer photo orders to retail photofinishers in the LifePics Network.
Fotobounce is a photo organization and sharing tool unique from others on the market. Key to this is the security built into the software. Fotobounce manages your photos locally on your computer to ensure total privacy and provide faster performance. Another privacy feature is the ability for users to share photos with friends and family easily, yet super securely via private photo sharing networks. Photos are transferred to friends and family across your private network at full resolution (unlike low resolution photos available from most social media websites). The latest release of Fotobounce, Version 3.1 (released October 2010), now enables seamless printing of photos via the LifePics online photo service.

"People take photos for many reasons but a key reason is to share these visual mementos with friends and family, especially for special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries," says Fotobounce President Ray Ganong. "Fotobounce uses face detection and recognition technology to quickly organize photos -- eliminating endless hours searching for photos when you want to print photos to commemorate special events. These days, a photo book is one of the most popular ways people choose to print photos. We feel that LifePics offers a unique and easy way for consumers to share their photos using photo books and many other print options. LifePics has developed a fantastic network of photo printing retailers so you can have your photos printed wherever you happen to live."
The LifePics retailer network is over 10,000 stores strong and includes the world's largest network of independent camera stores, large retail chains, and photofinishers of all sizes that want to offer their customers a superior online digital photofinishing service. For photo printing, LifePics provides customers with a user-friendly online interface where they can order thousands of products, including prints, photo books, personalized greeting cards, photo calendars, enlargements, and much more. Users simply identify a local retailer for printing their photos by entering their zip or postal code and selecting from the list of area retailers. Once the order is placed, it can be picked up in as little as an hour from the retailer or delivered directly to the customer's home.
"Helping customers share their life moments is a large part of what LifePics is all about. Making it easy for them to do so is also important," says Ken McDonald, Vice President of Marketing at LifePics. "Fotobounce already offers its users a powerful, yet intuitive solution. With LifePics, they'll have access to North America's most extensive network of photo printing providers so they can easily print and share their photo memories."
Both Fotobounce and LifePics view this marketing agreement as an exceptional opportunity to inform consumers of this comprehensive "click to print" solution for managing their digital photos.
