Target, Photobucket partner for expanded photo services

MINNEAPOLIS and DENVER Target has entered into an agreement with Photobucket, the leading stand-alone photo and video sharing site, under which expanded photo services will be provided to Target customers and Photobucket users.

Target will offer print-to-store services to Photobucket users through www.photobucket.com and www.target.com/photo. After creating a free account on Photobucket, users can upload and organize their photos, edit their images and order prints for pickup – in about an hour – at most Target stores nationwide. Photobucket also enables users to organize videos; create slideshows and group albums; customize unique photo gifts; and share photos with friends and family through e-mail, IM, social networks, blogs or mobile phones.

"Photobucket has emerged as a leader in online photo and video sharing," said Mark Schindele, senior vp of Target. “The site has an active community of more than 22 million monthly visitors in the U.S. Through this collaboration, our guests can now combine Photobucket’s creative tools with the convenience and quality they have come to expect from Target Photo.”
