Canon USA Unveils Pixma Comix Application on Facebook


Melville, NY—Canon USA launched Canon Pixma Comix, an interactive application found on the Canon USA Facebook page that enables fans to create personalized photo comic strips to print and share.

The app highlights the Full HD Movie Print technology found in My Image Garden software. This technology permits users to select and print individual frames of a video, so every moment—captured via camcorder or digital camera—can be enjoyed as an individual image.

“The Canon Pixma Comix application enables photo and video enthusiasts to easily apply comic book styling to their images, and share their story,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications, Canon USA. “We always strive to enhance the Canon consumer experience, and with this application, it’s easy to get creative with a home printer by printing personalized comic strips to enjoy for years to come.”

Whether it’s videos or photos, Canon Pixma Comix allows users to utilize up to six images to create a comic strip. The images can be uploaded from photo albums or as stills pulled from an uploaded video stored on a PC or Facebook page.

Creative options include comic strip templates, photo filters such as fisheye, toy camera and poster effects, various font styles and the ability to select comic style speech and sound effect bubbles where text can be added. After creating a comic, users can print the final product to display or post and share it within their social network.

For those who opt to print their comic through the application, Canon is offering a special promotion, which will be available through the Canon Direct Store.
