Internet print service
Boots have announced their Internet print service from Fuji Photo Film (UK). The service is available at www.wellbeing.com and allows you to order reprints and enlargements of digital images up to 10" x 15" which will be delivered direct to your door - and offers the same high quality as you would get in store.
At the heart of the service is Boots' Image Viewer software. The software can be downloaded from www.wellbeing.com/bootsphoto or is available if you have your film developed at Boots and your images saved to CD. It recognises a variety of file formats, including jpegs, tifs and bmps and allows you to print anything from a single image at 6" x 4" to a range of shots at different sizes. It also offers an easy way to keep photographs organised with a system which allows you to create your own virtual albums.
Photo makeover service
Boots, supported by Fujifilm, have announced the Boots Photo Makever service - a user-friendly kiosk in over 250 of its high street stores, which allows you to get the perfect image from a digital original or scanned print.
