Palo Alto, Calif., WPPI Booth #737 — March 8, 2010 — DigiLabs Pro (http://digilabspro.com), which provides professional photographers with a comprehensive, seamless, cost-effective and flexible online proofing and fulfillment solution, today at the Wedding Professional Photographers International (WPPI) 2010 Convention and Trade Show debuted several new product offerings as well as a beta version of the latest generation of its software, all of which enable pros to better tailor their online offerings to their personal brand and to provide a more diverse collection of high-quality products to their customers. This enhanced platform empowers professional photographers to flawlessly unify their workflow with their web presences while offering sophisticated products and services to their clientele.
The latest generation of DigiLabs software provides absolute flexibility for photographers to create their web galleries using the personal look and feel of their business and without DigiLabs branding. At the same time, the software simplifies photo business workflow by creating a single point of access for photographers to update their virtual storefronts and easily create customized photo products for their clients. The final version of the software is scheduled for full public release in April.
Already an established leader in the production of sophisticated and high-quality digital press-printed products, DigiLabs‚ new offerings include two new flush mount albums, the Marina and Anza models, which can meet the needs of customers at virtually any price point. In addition, fully customizable proof books are now available with photo covers, and gallery wraps are now available for professionals looking to create dynamic artistic displays of their original work.
“The community of professional photographers continues to expand rapidly in the wedding, portrait, fine art, school, sport and other markets, and these shooters need affordable tools that work within their business model to enable them to provide superior products and services, make their operations more efficient and free up time to focus on their craft,” said Chanan Steinhart, CEO and a founder of DigiLabs. “With our new offerings, both seasoned veterans and new photographers will be able to present their clients with the best products available through a streamlined design and ordering solution.”

Gallery wraps— One and a half-inch thick and printed on the highest-quality canvas and coated with a UV varnish to ensure the quality of the image
The updated features in DigiLabs’ software give professional photographers the benefits of:

Multi-tasking— Ability to toggle between multiple open projects simultaneously

Simplifying workflow— Easy-to-use wizards make creating products, from albums to proof books, as straightforward as a few clicks of a button
“I created one of DigiLabs′ new flush mount albums, the Marina, to display my work at a recent wedding tradeshow. Everyone clamored over it and said how impressed they were with the beautiful presentation and durable construction. Even after nearly 500 people had put their fingerprints all over it, I wiped the album with a soft cloth and it looked brand new,” said Sara Shunk, owner of Digital Creative Group, a DigiLabs customer since 2008 and a beta tester of the new software. “DigiLabs&rsquol; updated software is so easy to navigate between different projects our business is considering offering new photo package options, such as thank you cards, in the coming year.”
