Raise your hand if you remember when we used to bring our camera film to the photo shop to get developed. Remember when we didn’t know what the images looked like beforehand? Remember the excitement we had when we would go pick them up!?! Oh I do, I remember those magical moments of opening that Kodak envelope with baited breath, hoping the shots came out how we had hoped, and even if the pictures that didn’t come out great they were precious, because they expose and illustrate a moment in our lives that we find important enough to capture and print onto photo paper. Remember when paper pictures were all we had?!?
It’s important not to forget the importance of pictures, real paper pictures. It’s important to remember to make hard copies of those precious moments, our favorite moments, because pictures are more than just an image to « like » or comment on on facebook or instagram, pictures are all that’s left from fleeting moments that pass all too quickly. KODAK MOMENTS has a new tool that helps us keep those moments so easily, that it’s as simple as using a smartphone app.
(Free and easy giveaway below…)
KODAK MOMENTS understands how important images, memories and pretty pictures are to us these days, so they have included an editing tool in the app. Now we can all print perfect pictures of our precious moments!
Oh and instagram fans…you can even print square format photos… how do you like that?!?
I have hundreds and hundreds of photos of Bébé Chéri, and I can’t print them all, but my favorites, I should, and have already! I am putting them in a baby album for him, just like my mother used to do for me. It’s so worth it to turn a handful of those digital photos into framable pictures. It something you can hold on to forever. Memories.
Some of my favorite moments from this past Summer (probably the best Summer of my life as I got to spend it all with Bébé Chéri) like the time I showed him the Eiffel Tower for the first time, or when we went to Deauville with him for his first trip away from Paris, or the first time I brought him on the merry-go-round, or the whole month that Mama Chérie spent with us after he was born… There are so many amazing moments to capture and print on paper. And I can do it all from my phone or tablet!
The app is super user friendly. It takes me all of a minute to order my photos in the morning, and I can pick them up on my way home in the evening. Or I could even go to the shop and via the connection on the KODAK MOMENTS photo printing computer, I can have my photos ordered and printed right away while I wait. Isn’t technology fantastic!
After I picked up my first order of picture prints, I felt that excitement that I used to get when picking up my developed photos back in the day. And even though I knew what the pictures already looked like (not like the old days when we used film) it was still thrilling to open the Kodak envelope and see them on paper! And someday when Bébé Chéri is older, we will take out his baby photo album, and remember when…
