LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 1, 2010 — Ushering in a new era of digital imaging and printing, Snapily ( www.snapily.com), the leader in high-quality 3D personalized products is offering the industry’s first online service for 3D lenticular printing dedicated to creative professionals. Adobe® Photoshop® CS5 Extended allows 2D images to be transformed into 3D images with depth and movement and now Adobe Photoshop users can tap into SnapilyPro to print their quality 3D projects. Snapily will be showcasing the SnapilyPro online 3D printing service at Photoshop World in Las Vegas, September 1-3, 2010.
Top international design firms and creative shops consistently seek new innovative imagery for their projects. Now with SnapilyPro, graphic artists and professionals can create unique 3D designs that come to life with a flick of the wrist and have their projects printed and shipped within days. Designers can have any number of prints and one-off proofs produced, including small-run 3D lenticular projects for a complete, fast and easy professional printing service experience.
“Our offerings provide new and unique levels of creative imaging,” said Vered Levy-Ron, CEO of Snapily. “The easy-to-use interface gives all Adobe Photoshop professionals the ability to create affordable high-quality, exciting 3D images from their personal computer and print them for fast and convenient delivery.”
Through the SnapilyPro website ( www.snapilypro.com), visitors can upload one of several file formats: a Photoshop (PSD) file, an interlaced file of Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended for 3D and flip, the HumanEyes Creative3D Ldoc file or two images (BMP or JPEG) for a flip. SnapilyPro simulates the 3D image in an online preview, and then prints the final 3D product for rapid shipment and delivery.
In addition to traditional campaign projects and promotions, other popular 3D and flip uses include personalized mini posters, business cards, wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations, postcards, collector cards, greeting cards, fine arts prints, flyers and more.
