Black’s Photo leverages TELUS' cloud with new Mobile Apps

by Rob Lewis

Today, Black’s Photo, along with parent TELUS, unveiled their next generation of digital imaging with a fully integrated photo management site and smart phone app. Both of these brand new technologies are dedicated to making it easier than ever for customers to create, manage, print and store photo memories from anywhere in Canada.

Customers will now be able to use the secure TELUS-powered storage cloud on and TELUS-designed Black’s Photo app to learn, share, shop, organize, and create memorable photo projects. The Black’s Photo app also enables customers to send photos directly from their smart phones to a printer at any Black’s location across Canada.

“For 80 years, Black’s has continued to evolve and provide a platform for people who share our passion for celebrating their memories,” said Ethel Taylor, President and General Manager, Black’s. “And now, our partnership with TELUS enables us to leverage their leading technology and secured mobility to provide customers with the tools they need to keep doing more with their photos.”

The newly designed photo management site offers customers a simplified online approach to organizing their photos and provides additional value to complement the in-store experience.  Functions such as easy photo-tagging, Photo Book creation, and the ability to download photos at full-resolution in a secured cloud storage platform are just the beginning.

The new site also harnesses a social community of education and learning, with HD video tutorials, blogs, forums and photo sharing all incorporated.

For customers who want access to their photos on-the-go, the new Black’s Photo app will provide just that. The Black’s Photo app offers a mobile way to manage, share, store and print photos, allowing users to immediately share their memories with friends, family and colleagues, rather than sending them at a later time when the moment has passed.

Customers can use the Black’s Photo app’s GPS feature to locate and map out the nearest Black’s store, and send photos directly from their smart phones to a printer at any store location across Canada.

The Black’s Photo app is free to download and available to iPhone and BlackBerry customers starting today. As of mid-October 2010, the app will also be available on Android.
