Sony Unveils Digital Scrapbooking Software For Picturestation Kiosks


LAS VEGAS (CHA, Booth #2063), Jan. 30, 2006 - In response to the growing hi-tech arts and crafts trend, Sony Electronics introduced Digital Scrapbooking software for its PictureStation™ Digital Photofinishing kiosk.

The new software package offers 35 pre-designed layouts for creating both 8 x 8 and the larger size 8 x 10-inch scrapbook pages, which are ideal for digital scrapbooks.

“We’ve developed software that enhances the wide-ranging capabilities of the PictureStation system,” said Lynda Falby, Sony Electronics marketing manager for digital photofinishing. “With so many design options to choose from, the Digital Scrapbooking software provides a fast way to create beautiful scrapbook pages”.

It also offers creative photo cutouts for mattes right on the photos. The customer chooses the size, shape, thickness and color of the matte using easy to follow touch keys. The cutout can be applied to any PictureStation print size, and even to edited photos. This new software also includes a set of seasonal borders. With this addition, there is now a scrapbook icon on the PictureStation kiosk, which includes 35 pre-designed layouts, as well as 50 new seasonal border designs for 4 x 6, 5 x 7 and 8 x 10-inch prints (both horizontal and vertical orientations) - totaling more than 250 borders.

Border categories include 2006 calendars, winter holidays, spring, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Easter, graduations and weddings. All scrapbooking pre-designs were created by Shabby Princess and Creative Snaps, two industry leaders in digital scrapbooking. For retailers, this new scrapbooking application is available for kiosk models using PSCAB250/BL or PSCAB300/BL ordering terminal/kiosk running software versions V4250 or later.

The PictureStation Digital Scrapbooking software is now available at authorized Sony resellers nationwide with a suggested list price of $699.
