Customers Can Now Order Photo Gifts Using the KODAK Picture Kiosks; CVSPhotoCenter.com Offers Advanced Sharing Capabilities
WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, the retail leader in photo imaging and services, today announced it has enhanced its KODAK Picture Kiosks and Online Photo Center (www.cvsphotocenter.com) as a part of CVS/pharmacy's ongoing commitment to providing customers with the best possible retail photo experience. Customers can, for the first time, create photo gifts using Kodak touch screen Picture Kiosks found at all CVS/pharmacy One Hour Photo Centers. The constantly expanding portfolio of gifts available online and/or in-store include one-of-a-kind photo cookies, photo playing cards and photo plates featuring the Disney(R) High School Musical cast, Barbie(R) and Hannah Montana(R), which put customers' favorite snapshots on display with their favorite characters. In addition to widening the selection of photo gifts, the in-store kiosks and online photo centers feature a new look providing an easier and faster photo experience for all customers.
The enhanced KODAK Picture Kiosks include a new, sleek on-screen menu designed to help customers quickly start a project, while learning more about other offerings. The new software automatically detects digital media (USB drives, memory cards, CDs, etc.) and organizes by date and folders, eliminating the time and hassle of searching for customers' favorite pictures, making it faster and easier than ever to create photos and special photo gifts in minutes.
For customers who prefer to manage their photos online, CVS/pharmacy also provides free online photo storage to its customers on CVSPhotoCenter.com. Here, customers can upload their images, order photo gifts and share photo galleries with friends and family. In a perfect blend of the convenience of the Internet and your neighborhood photo lab, prints ordered online can be picked up in as little as one hour at a local CVS/pharmacy Photo Center. The online photo center also features a new look offering a streamlined interface and additional features including photo slideshows and before and after editing views.
Photo Gifts for Everyday and Every Occasion
With all the conveniences digital cameras provide, photo gifts are now more popular and affordable than ever. Customers can select from a wide array of newly available high-quality photo gifts starting at $9.99 right from the KODAK Picture Kiosk, with a more extensive catalogue of photo gifts available online. Photo gifts like apparel and posters can be picked up in about two weeks at CVS/pharmacy.
