Epson Updates Photo App To Enable Instragram Functionality
April 28, 2016
Today Epson America, Inc. took mobile printing a step farther by enabling Instragram printing through the latest version of their Epson® Creative Print. The new enhanced app makes it super easy to create, preserve, and share Instagram pictures in the form of high-quality photo collages.
Epson Creative Print is part of the powerful Epson Connect™ suite of mobile printing options designed to work with Epson’s high-quality lineup of printers and AIOs. Highlighting the new version of the app are a simplified design and interface making it quick and easy for users to engage their creative sides and build amazing collages with their own collection of Instagram images as well as almost any photo stored directly on their tablet or smartphone. With the new app, users can choose up to 12 photos which can then in turn be printing in a framed photo collage and printed in a variety of sizes up to 8.5" x 11" on compatible Epson Expression printers including the brand new Epson Expression® Home XP-430 Small-in-One®
According to Nils Madden, senior marketing director, Epson America Inc., "Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms among Millennials, and Epson now allows users to directly create and print their Instagram masterpieces with the enhanced Creative Print app. A seamless and useful tool for creativity and self-expression, the photo collage printing function caters to today?s visual lifestyles, allowing mobile customers to easily print and display their favorite memories at home, or share with family and friends to proudly display on the refrigerator or bedroom photo board."
Beyond Instagram, the Epson Creative Print app also enables users to access Facebook photos which can then be used to create custom greeting cards as well as a variety of stationary. You can also use the app to print directly onto CDs/DVDs on printers equipped with the necessary slot or use photos to create coloring book templates adding to the fun of your photos. For those so inclined, Epson also notes that the app also makes it possible for users to perform a variety of other photo-centric tasks including creating and printing DIY crafts, making decorations for dorm rooms, and display-worthy refrigerator décor. Lastly the app also supports direct supplies ordering right from the app itself, removing the need to fire up a computer to do so.
This latest version of the app is available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The latest version of the Epson Creative Print app assists users in finding new and creative ways to use and print your photos from Instagram and Facebook with your mobile devices.
