LONG BEACH, Calif., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson announced today significant enhancements to its Creative Print App, including expanded customization capabilities for Instagram photos. Featuring a direct link to Instagram on the home screen, Epson® Creative Print 4.1 expands customization features allowing people to place text within a collage and customize fonts and collage backgrounds. With seamless wireless printing, Epson brings digital artwork to life and encourages creativity with high-quality printed collages, personalized coloring pages, greeting cards, calendars, and more.
The Creative Print app is an extension of the robust Epson Connect™ suite of mobile printing solutions – allowing users to seamlessly transform their photos into high-quality prints. The updated Creative Print app connects to iCloud®, allowing access to photos stored on multiple computers, tablets, and phones, further expanding the library of images accessible in a single device. In addition, users can now personalize photo collages by adding customized text and a background. With a compatible Epson all-in-one printer, such as the Epson Expression® Premium XP-640 Small-in-One®, the Creative Print App wirelessly prints photo collages up to 8.5" x 11" to frame in the home or give as a gift. Additionally, the app supports patterned printing, a useful feature for DIY gift wrapping and other creative projects.
"More than 80 million photos1 are uploaded to Instagram each day; the app has become such an integral part of our lives, and Epson has simplified the process of turning these digital collages and images into physical photos that can be displayed for decades," said Jack Rieger, senior product manager, software, Epson America Inc. "The new Creative Print updates make it easy to create professional looking masterpieces with your Instagram photos—with just a few clicks on your mobile device."
The Creative Print app accesses Facebook and leverages posted photos for creative inspiration, including photo collages where up to 12 photos can be placed in a single collage. Creative Print can help create custom greeting cards and stationery, including lined paper, and print photos directly on the CDs/DVDs2. Users can purchase ink and paper directly through the mobile app for added convenience.
The Creative Print app is currently available for free download from Google Play and on the App Store. With Creative Print it is easier than ever to create and print from Instagram and Facebook using your mobile device to a variety of compatible Epson all-in-one printers within your wireless network.
