You went Through the Woods and Over the River to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving and took a slew of photos with your smartphone after you arrived.
But like her MTV, Grandma wants prints of those photos now, not a few weeks later when you finally get around making them and mailing them to her. And Grandma doesn’t own a computer or color printer, so you can’t do them at her home.
If Grandma lives near one of 7, 000 CVS pharmacies or 58 Bartell’s Drug stores, and if you’ve got the free KODAK Kiosk Connect app (available for and ) on your smartphone, your bacon is saved.
Here’s the app works.
Get the App
First, download and install the app on your smartphone.
Find a KODAK Picture Kiosk
Find a CVS or Bartell’s near Grandma’s house. Although, the KODAK Kiosk Connect app won’t do that for you, you can use the Website to do so. And you may find these kiosks located at other nearby stores, like Target, as well.
Since you’ll transfer your photos to the Kiosk from your smartphone over Wi-Fi, call the store to confirm it has a Wi-Fi enabled KODAK Picture Kiosk. (Not all KODAK Picture Kiosk are Wi-Fi capable;, including SD cards and USB flash drives.)
Launch The App, Select Photos
Launch the Kodak Kiosk Connect app on your smartphone, then tap on “Tag Pictures on Device First” to select the photos you want to print. (On the iPhone, you can choose photos from the phone’s Camera Roll or from any Album of photos stored on your phone.)
Then click on “Tagged Set” and “Save” to save your photos as a set for transfer to the store’s Kodak Picture Kiosk.
Pick Your Project
Use the kiosk’s touch screen to pick the type of photo project you want to make. In addition to .
For my initial test of the Kodak Kiosk Connect app, I selected a single photo, taken with my iPhone when I was at Lake Louise, Alberta in September.
Make Your Project
Follow the instructions on the touchscreen of the KODAK Picture Kiosk to make your project. You’ll be prompted to connect your smartphone to the kiosk to transfer the photos you picked for the project.
Limited Edition Prints
Over the last year or so Art Business News has had some very good articles on producing and publishing limited editions and on copyrights for artists. If you are represented and published by a gallery, publisher or agent, pay close attention to exactly what is published and how it is numbered. For example, if your agreement is an edition of 250, and they produce and sell 100 additional "artists proofs" of the same image, it could compromise your reputation and integrity. In setting an edition limit, consider if you want to market the same image in different sizes and materials. And ensure any agreement you enter provides for a regular inventory report to you on what's been published and sold
