In what appears to be a good deal for many, particularly for owners of Sony’s Cyber-shot cameras, A–mount and E-mount digital cameras, and Handycam camcorders, Sony Electronics is announcing today that it is working together with Hewlett-Packard to bring Snapfish to PlayMemories Home.
In an email statement today, Sony says that the latest version of its PlayMemories Home software will now allow users to order prints from Snapfish. In case you didn’t know, Snapfish is a web-based photo-sharing and photo-printing service that is fully owned by HP. On the other hand, Sony’s PlayMemories Home service, which was launched in April this year, lets Sony camera owners upload and organize photos on the fly, thanks to its 5GB free storage.
The new version of PlayMemories will basically allow users to upload images directly to Snapfish in just a click of a button. HP is also giving first-time Snapfish users the chance to save up to 50 percent on their first photo book. So it’s probably worth a try. PlayMemories Home users can update to the latest version by visiting the official site.
