Fremont, CA—ArcSoft, a global leader of image-intelligent technologies, announced a partnership between its award-winning digital photo makeover app, Perfect365, and the popular photo book app Mosaic by Mixbook. Perfect365 users can now use their edited images to create lasting memories in a Mosaic photo book—a 20-page album that can be created in less than five minutes.
The average photo book currently takes hours to create, but Mosaic has streamlined the process, taking users from photos to a finished book in minutes—all on a smartphone.
“The great thing about photo albums is that they keep your favorite memories accessible and tangible. It’s a conversation starter, a great gift or the kind of item you want displayed on your coffee table,” said Vickie Wei, director, Corporate Marketing, ArcSoft, the creative team behind Perfect365. “But picture-worthy occasions such as camping trips, vacations and spontaneous candids aren’t always so forgiving. Rather than spending hours playing around with filters and editing tools to adjust your portraits, Perfect365 and Mosaic make it so easy to bring your memories to life, or quickly create a fantastic present for any number of occasions.”
With Perfect365, after users have snapped a few selfies and loaded photos from their camera rolls, ArcSoft’s Face Detection technology takes over, automatically mapping a person’s eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and hairline. This allows users to create touched-up photos by choosing from dozens of preset templates for a flattering, realistic makeover inspired by today’s styles. Users can also customize their look with nearly 20 tweaking tools that whiten teeth, brighten eyes and banish blemishes.
When 20 images are perfected and saved to My Favorites in Perfect365, they can be added to a Mosaic album with just a few clicks. There, they are transformed into a high-quality, 20-page, 7×7-inch photo book, complete with a linen cover featuring cutout windows that give a sneak peak of the photos. For a flat rate of $20 (plus shipping), users will receive the keepsake in four days.
The Mosaic feature is available on Perfect365 for iOS and will soon expand to Android and Windows 8.
“Perfect365 has created a wonderful app that makes it dead simple to beautify your portraits,” added John Flaaten, director, Business Development, Mixbook. “Through our partnership with Perfect365, we have made it easy to take your pixel-perfect iPhone photos to your coffee table in a Mosaic book. The barriers from photo capture and editing to print are minimized with our partnership. This is an exciting example of how popular editing and photo commerce apps can collaborate to deliver consumers beautiful and seemingly effortless photo products.” arcsoft.com and heymosaic.com
