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.
