New version of CompuPicTM will allow end users to order custom photo posters and other Bignose products directly from their CompuPic Photo libraries.
Austin TX, February 23, 2002 - Photodex Corporation, a leading provider of digital imaging software announced today integrated support for Bignose Internet printing services with Photodex's image organization software for Windows CompuPic 6.X. With this update, millions of Photodex consumers and professional customers will be able to order Bignose custom photo products with just a click in the CompuPic software.
Due to release in the second quarter of 2002 in all versions of the CompuPic software, users of the software will be able to select images for automatic uploading to Bignose's on-line ordering process for posters, canvas prints, Giant Puzzles, and other custom photo products. With a "click" of the mouse selected images on the users local computer will be automatically uploaded to the Bignose site for ordering. To optimize the user experience, the CompuPic software will initially upload a low-resolution thumbnail of the image for quick access to the Bignose ordering site. While the user is completing their order, the CompuPic software will upload a high-resolution version of the image in the background greatly reducing any upload "wait time" for the user. In addition, the high-resolution image will be automatically optimized by the CompuPic software for poster-sized output.
"We're very excited about the integration with CompuPic and our relationship with Photodex," said Tim Flanagan, CEO of Bignose, Inc. "It's clear with recent announcements in the on-line photo community that consumers want to work with and organize their images on their local PC yet have the convenience of on-line ordering for custom photo products," continued Mr. Flanagan.
