Paper Abstract

Digital photography is no longer simply a successor to film. The market for picture capturing devices is booming and therefore the household penetration is growing rapidly. The digital market is now driven by additional devices such as mobile phones with camera and video functions (camphones) as well as innovative products derived from digital files. A large number of consumers do not print their images and non-printing has become the major enemy of wholesale printers, home printing suppliers and retailers. There is a need to archive all of these images taken with digital still cameras (DSCs) and/or camphones in addition to store it on a storage device. Beside the classical prints which are still the best long time archive there new products offering additional convenience to the consumer. This paper addresses the challenge facing our industry, namely how to encourage the consumer to print images easily and conveniently from all types of digital media. Software solutions to order via the internet and mobile phones are presented in combination with products based on classical silver halide and electro photography.
