Mary Chocolate Co. Ltd., a Japanese confectionary manufacturer and seller founded in 1950, will run a booth to display its brand “Tokyo Chocolate” at “Salon du Chocolat Paris,” the world’s largest chocolate exhibition to be held from October 31 to November 4, 2018.

Although “Tokyo Chocolate” has constantly been showcasing its cutting-edge chocolate modes to the world, it bases their concept on “Tokyo,” the city which coexists with merchant culture built from old times.

This year’s exhibition concept is “NEW TOKYO JAPONISM”
It has been 160 years since Japan began to have friendly relations with France. Japanese culture featuring ukiyoe (woodblock prints), pottery and the like exhibited at the 1867 Paris Exposition was received with astonishment by the French people of that time and has influenced artists ever since.

Tokyo Chocolate has been building the field of “Chocolate of Wa (Japanese style)” by blending Japanese ingredients and chocolate together in Paris. Learning from Japanese tradition, Tokyo Chocolate will unveil “NEW TOKYO JAPONISM” — the chocolate for a new era in Paris. It will take part in Espace Japon, an event certified by Japonismes 2018 and introduce the following rose-themed chocolates.

Introducing the exhibits

1. Roses
This expresses through chocolate the feeling of presenting a bouquet of roses to celebrate the 160th anniversary in 2018 of the Japanese-French friendship.

2. Green perilla and strawberries
Japanese herb “green perilla” and a strawberry variety called “Skyberry” are used.

3. Red vinegar
Chocolate using red vinegar, traditional Japanese vinegar, and cooking sake (rice wine).

4. Five-flavor praline
Good aspects of “five flavors” people can taste — acidity, sweetness, umami (palatability), saltiness and bitterness — are collected into one piece.


Exhibition period: Oct. 31- Nov. 4, 2018
Venue: Paris-Porte de Versailles
Booth: Tokyo Chocolate – Stand A-34

New Krome Family Studio Changes Backgrounds, Adds & Deletes Items, & More Quickly & Affordably

 

If you’re looking for a way to turn ho-hum mobile or other digital family photos into images as crisp and creative as if they came from a professional photo shoot, meet Krome Family Studio – a phone/web app that puts a real photo studio in your pocket.  The service provides photo editing, optional background changes, and imaginative design concepts recommended and executed by Krome’s team of trained design directors in hours – from color-correcting to swapping the setting from a family kitchen to an outdoor landscape that makes the photo pop.

The company announced the newest Family Studio offering at this week’s Visual 1st conference in San Francisco, expanding a service that has already processed more than 1 million images for over 150,000 customers. Per-photo prices range from $3-$12. Photo packs are also available for $10, $20 and $30/month for two, five and seven photos, plus other benefits like free re-edits.

Simply upload photos from your phone or computer, and either let Krome’s designers make a recommendation, browse Krome’s Family Gallery of completed customer images or Krome Lookbooksof themed ideas ranging from back-to-school to prom and holiday for inspiration, or submit a custom request. Krome’s designers can:

  • Adjust colors, light and balance (turn amateur images into studio-quality gems)
  • Swap heads (replace the one frowning face in the family photo with that family member’s smiling image from another shot on your camera roll)
  • Merge multiple images (combine individual snapshots of each child into one photo, or add a missing person to a group photo)
  • Remove or add objects (delete photo bombs or other unwanted items from the background, and/or add birthday balloons, names or other props of your choice)
  • Change backgrounds (transport your baby to a beautiful field, the Grand Canyon or the moon)

The finished picture-perfect photos can be posted on social media or personal blogs, used for holiday cards or evites, printed as keepsakes at services from Zazzle and Shutterfly to Minted and FreePrints, and/or framed for gifts or wall display. Just tell Krome what size you need, and it’s a done deal.

“Every family picture tells a story, whether it’s a candid child or pet photo or a milestone like a new baby, a birthday or a high school graduation. But most people aren’t professional photographers, and the images they capture frequently need a little more work,” said Krome CEO Eduardo Lach. “Krome Family Studio transforms any mobile snapshot into beautiful and magical moments frozen in time. It’s like having your own personal photo editor/designer on call 24 hours a day.”

Krome offers the same editing and creative design services for businesses with Krome Business Studio, providing studio-quality images for use in e-commerce, social media, advertising and marketing. Prices begin at $5 per photo or $35/month for four advanced design images per month.

Krome Family Studio is available as an iOS and Android app as well as on the web at www.kromephotos.com.
