New Polaroid technology turns digital images into artwork

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Polaroid today announced the launch of the Polaroid Fotobar online store — PolaroidFotoBar.com — which offers an easy process to turn digital pictures into museum-quality art.

"With an estimated 1.5 billion photos taken each day, everyone captures the perfect moment that should be displayed on the office or living room wall," said Cheryl Zatz, VP marketing at Fotobar. "With Polaroid Fotobar, those special memories can be made into something exceptional."

The patent-pending feature Fotomail allows users to upload images captured on their smartphones and cameras onto the site. The photos are then able to be customized online; users can adjust such photo-effects as contrast, red-eye correction, brightness and filters. Fotomail works with photos posted on Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Picasa.

Customers can then choose from a variety of high-quality art formats and mountings, including framed, matted, canvas, metal, award and poster products. All items are made in the United States and can be shipped for free within the continental United States. Customer support is also available.
