If you’re like most people, you take a lot of pictures but don’t carry a camera. You use your phone to take pictures of you and your best mates, the tucker you ate at a new restaurant, and the cute things your baby (or niece or nephew) does on a daily basis. Some of the best pictures are those we turn into profile pictures on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter or collages on Instagram.
Besides showcasing all your favorite pictures on your social media sites, do you ever print them out? In our increasingly digital world, we can become so overwhelmed with the amount of pictures we have we don’t think twice about just leaving them on the Internet. But sometimes the best way to look at pictures isn’t online.
“But wait,” you’re probably thinking. “I can’t print out square pictures at my local photo centre.”
In the past that may have been true, but Fujifilm has recently made it possible to print square photos at store kiosks. Additionally, Fujifilm’s new app called TransPix (now available for iOS and soon for Android devices) now allows you to send your social media pictures straight from your phone to the kiosk for printing, without needing any USB cables or a memory card.
All you have to do is download the TransPix app to your phone, select the kiosk from the list, preview your pictures on your phone, and then click “send.” Once you see the confirmation page on your phone, you can print your photos from the kiosk.
Now that you’re aware of the cool new technology available, let’s consider why you should print your photos in the first place.
