Digital payments company Square has just launched Square Photo Studio, a new app that lets you take and edit product photos in a few clicks. It’s useful for small businesses who sell their products on online platforms, and it allows you to take “professional” photos. But how professional are they, really? Can they replace dedicated photographers who would take decent shots of the stuff you sell? Let’s see.
Along with the news about re-launching Ektachrome, Kodak seems to have some other news, too. At CES 2017, they announced the global launch of their on-demand photography service KODAKIT. Although the app was launched almost a year ago, the online service is now available worldwide. It covers 37 countries and 92 cities.
Historically, Kodak is known as a camera company. But over the last decade or so, they have fully switched to producing other technological solutions and systems. However, it seems they are slowly getting back to their photographic roots. The last announcement they made is not about launching a new camera or revival of an old film, but it is photography-related. They have created KODAKIT – the service that is supposed to connect photographers and customers all over the world. But is this service really bringing something new to the market?
