Get photo prints and create photo gifts online
| by Priyanka Tilve
Today thanks to digital cameras and smartphones clicking pictures is no longer limited to special occasions and has become child’s play. We can click as many pictures as we like and save those vitual albums locally or in the cloud. We rarely take photo prints, save for pictures of important occasions like weddings, birthdays or anniversaries. But one can’t deny that going through photo albums has a charm of its own. So if you are looking to take photo prints of your pictures, you don’t have to go looking for that "photo shop". There are many online services that offer you photo prints, at competitive rates and will deliver to your doorstep.
Zoomin also allows you to print panorama pictures
When looking for photo prints or even personalised photo gift options, Zoomin is a good place to begin. It features the widest range of options and designs to choose from. It’s also highly customisable, as it allows you to create your own designs. You can create Flipbooks, Hardcover books, folded books, photo mugs, canvas prints, posters, collages, calendars, photo frames etc. Apart from this, the site also features stationery like greeting cards and photo magnets. For school and office use you can also print personalised notebooks, exercise books, diaries, bag tags and even mousepads. You can also browse according to occasion, which you will save you time when looking at gift options. You can import pictures from Flickr and Picasa for prints. There are eighteen sizes to choose from, starting with 2x3" wallet size to 42x60" banner prints. You can choose from four finishing options – Matte, Glossy, Lustre and Luminous. Additionally on Zoomin, you also have the option to print panorama prints; you can choose from four sizes - 5x23", 8x14", 5x33" and 8x20.5". The prices start from Rs. 3.00 per print.
