MELVILLE, N.Y., June 25, 2018 – The average smart phone user has 630 photos stored in their phones1 – that’s a lot of memories captured with no place to go. Creating photo books to showcase all those memories is a great idea and thoughtful gift but the process can often feel daunting and time-consuming without the right application. Today, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the launch of the new hdAlbum EZ v2.0 app, using our proprietary EAGiAL-M2 technology to automatically arrange images directly from your compatible mobile device3 to make the photo book creation process a fun hobby and creative outlet.
The imaging experts at Canon have completely redesigned the hdAlbum EZ app with the v2.0 update for a virtually seamless customer experience, allowing users to navigate the mobile interface with ease and convenience. The redesigned software creates attractive layouts for the user, creating beautiful photo books using 20 to 50 of their favorite images. It can also be linked to Facebook, Instagram and Verizon Cloud accounts.
“Canon is committed to offering time-saving solutions and creating intuitive platforms for imaging creation,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The newly redesigned hdAlbum EZ v2.0 software provides a streamlined user experience for consumers to capture and share their memories with friends and families while leveraging the high-quality printing capabilities Canon is known for delivering.”
Starting at $14.99, Canon photo books take less than a week (approx. 3-5 business days) for production. Canon hdAlbums are ideal gifts or keepsakes for life’s biggest moments such as graduations, family vacations, newborns, engagements, weddings and more – you can learn more about the photo books and the redesigned app by visiting: https://www.usa.canon.com/shop/printers/professional-photo-printers.
