Either by FTP or CD, schools send us the images they have taken of school activities, and we put them securely on-line in albums and galleries. We crop, color correct and remove red-eye if needed. The school’s constituents can view those images and order a print of one or more right on-line. The person ordering gets the prints in the mail, and the school gets 25% of the revenue generated through those purchases. At the end of the year, we archive all the images to CD and create a physical notebook of contact sheets with thumbnails that mirrors the CD’s.
The cost of the service is $200 per year. Schools also pay a one-time set-up fee of $50 in the first year.
An on-line secure, unique account where the school’s digital images will be uploaded and stored. When images are uploaded, we apply VividPic’s technology to analyze and make adjustments to the images (if needed) to improve the colors and exposure.
The storing and hosting of an unlimited number and size of the school’s digital images.
It’s a Snap
Seamless album-by-album slideshow functionality (so the images within the on-line albums can be viewed at the preferred pace), thumbnail creation for all images used in each album (to decrease the time required to open the albums and pages as well as to make it easier for the viewer to scan through the images quickly in order to locate the ones of most interest), and ordering functionality that is highly intuitive but is accompanied by step-by-step instructions nonetheless.
Built-in e-commerce technology for the purchase of images within an album, including secure credit card processing. We use industry standard secure server software (SSL) for all photo ordering and account management transactions. It encrypts all of the purchaser’s personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that the information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
