Canon’s New hdAlbum EZ Service Can Transform Traditional Photo Book Creation Process

Users can create stylish layouts with storylines for photo books with hdAlbum EZ app


MELVILLE, N.Y., December 7, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the new hdAlbum EZ service, an innovative software solution that allows users to quickly and easily create a photo book keepsake that captures their memories. Building upon the success of the hdAlbum service launched in January 2015, this new hdAlbum EZ service features Canon’s new advanced EAGiAL technology, which automatically selects a user’s photos based on lighting, composition, and face recognition, and creates an elegantly, styled layout with a storyline. The hdAlbum EZ service offers users high-quality printing on the Canon DreamLabo 5000 inkjet production photo printer which produces images with rich, vibrant color and impeccable detail.

Accessible through the hdAlbum EZ App, the software helps reduce the amount of time needed to select shots from a large collection of photos, as well as create and edit a photo book. The hdAlbum EZ App even has a built-in function to automatically capture still frames from video files. This automatic feature has been included in response to the increase of users creating videos in recent years. This technology provides another way to capture compelling, live-action images. The hdAlbum EZ App will be available for compatible computers, tablets and smartphones.

“Sorting through files and selecting quality photos can be one of the most time-consuming steps in photo album creation,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The hdAlbum EZ automated software automatically detects and chooses photos for album creation. This time-saving solution provides an intuitive platform for users to best tell their story, while also allowing more time for creativity.”
