Photo Books for free - FotoInsight challenges photo book newcomers, printing photo booklets for free.
The CeWe Photo Book editing software is a tool to create coffee table style photo books from own digital snaps, which can be downloaded for free from FotoInsight’s website. In time for Father’s day, the Cambridge company is promising every new user a free photo booklet print in an attempt to showcase its software which it states can produce a photo book in three minutes.
Printing photo books from digital images is arguably the fastest growing product in the photo processing industry. In view of the popularity of photo books in the USA and Europe it is surprising that they still live niche existences in Britain. The Cambridge company FotoInsight Limited is offering a £5.99 photo booklet print for free to showcase the quality its photo book printing service at the FotoInsight website through an £8 voucher for new customers. The remaining cost of a booklet (delivery) is only £1.79.
In the year 2006 over three million individual photo books and photographic calendars have been printed by photo labs and printers world wide. Andrew White, Internet Sales Manager at FotoInsight’s production partner explains: “We are a little bit behind Germany and France, where Photobooks are huge. You only have to show somebody one, though and they immediately want to know how to do it. Therefore this £8 voucher will be UK exclusive.” FotoInsight hopes to provide the opportunity to trial its photo book editing software and experience the complete liberty in the positioning and layering of images, transparent texts, and choice of fonts offered by the Photobook Software.
A trial with a free printed photo booklet
Managing Director Klaas Brumann explains why FotoInsight is giving away a free booklet print: “We detected that one of the greatest barriers to ordering a photo book is that people expect it to be complicated. A common statement from those reviewing our photo book software and printing service is how surprisingly easy it actually is. With the £8 voucher we want to give everyone the opportunity to test the software and printing quality.” Conveniently, it is the time of the year, where such a trial print may serve as a very personal Father’s day present.
In time for Father’s Day
Gifts for Father’s Day are left late and less is being spent than on Mother’s Day. With Father’s spending a growing amount of time with their children this may change. To express appreciation for all Dad has to offer it is good to ask him what he was like growing up and what made him who he is today; asking him about his work — his expertise can be unexpectedly valuable; joining Dad in pursuit of his interests and hobbies. The FotoInsight Managing Director and father of two, Klaas Brumann states: “If photographs of great father-child-events like a ball game, building a tool shed, or an adventure holiday are available, those moments are worth to be immortalised in a printed photo book or booklet. We are proud to put printed photo booklets within reach of every digital camera user.”
