Yahoo! Offers Digital Photo Prints

Yahoo! Inc. Tuesday began offering
digital photo services with the help of Shutterfly Inc.


Shutterfly, a digital photo firm chaired by Silicon Graphics and Netscape
Communications founder Jim Clark, will deliver quality prints for Yahoo! Photos. Visitors to this portal
can get 35mm-quality prints from their online photos.


Yahoo! (YHOO) most recent play comes at a time when consumers are increasingly
turning to online digital photography. Using VividPics technology, the
Shutterfly service automatically enhances both the color and sharpness of
photos.


To kick off the new service, Shutterfly and Yahoo! Photos will offer
visitors their first order for free. People who order a set of pictures
before April 30 will receive their first order of up to 15 prints free of
charge.


“Our agreement with Shutterfly expands Yahoo! Photos’ offering to include
the ability to order high-quality prints so users can enjoy their photos
whether online or offline,” said Geoff Ralston, vice president and general
manager of the communication services group at Yahoo!. “We’re pleased to
work with a market leader like Shutterfly to offer our users quality print
services when coming to Yahoo!.”
