Photobox Unveil Digital Image Heaven for Ireland

New site, new products, new sharing possibilities, so get creative!

October 22nd 2008

Photobox, Europe’s number one online community for photo printing and personal publishing, has today announced the launch of its new site in the Republic of Ireland. The site boasts an all new selection of products and user functionality to offer Irish photo fanatics everything they need to get creative.

There are now more photo gifts and innovative ideas to do more with your photos. For proud parents and grandparents Photobox offers a new Kids Collection with the ability to integrate photos with well known cartoon characters from; Warner Brothers (Bugs Bunny, Tweety and others,) Hit Entertainment (Thomas the Tank Engine and friends,) and Disney. In addition, Photobox now offers a comprehensive range of personalised photo books ranging from the latest site exclusive Minibooks (perfect for handbags) to entirely bespoke hard or soft-cover books in various sizes and with a vast array of different product designs. The latest product addition to the site includes acrylic prints the ideal alternative to traditional canvases. All products can be tailored using the new online product publishing suite which lets customers effortlessly drag and drop their images, add text and swap and preview from a range of design styles.

Site essentials such as photo uploads, sharing and product ordering have been made more intuitive. Photo tagging and search ensures less time looking for photos for those with thousands of stored images. Members can now publish and share their album with friends and family on a photo blog as easily as they might by sending an email. Digital photo junkies can also take advantage of a sophisticated suite of photo editing software completely integrated in the new Photobox service. The new technology (provided by US-based Picnik) offers semi professional online editing software for free and is as easy as child’s play.

The newly designed site has a number of features to make the whole Photobox experience simple and fast. “My Photobox” provides immediate access to all online photo albums, creations or account details for each member. Extensive shop pages display the Photobox product range in great detail.

Mark Chapman, Photobox MD, said: “The new site is designed to be the best one stop shop for anyone who wants to create exciting products with their digital photos. We wanted to make it easy for everyone: whether they’re shutter crazed young families, cyber mad grandparents, amateurs or pros. The new site means they can create, share and get fabulous personalised products shipped to them in record time and of outstanding quality. Plus, the new platform means we can just keep on bringing out new functionality and products to our loyal customers at an even faster rate!”
