Mac users rejoice! The Apple iPhoto printing service long established in the US and parts of Europe has finally made its way down under, with the service being made available in Australia and New Zealand on Wednesday.
Users of iPhoto, part of Apple's iLife '08 suite, can now turn their digital images into cards, books and calendars, or print them in a range of sizes from the standard 4x6" to a poster-sized 20x30".
Currently, when you try to purchase prints, Australia and New Zealand are not on the list of available countries, but this should change once you install the iPhoto '08 update.
Pricing starts at AU$0.29 for a single 4x6" print, which is AU$0.10 more than HP's year-old. Apple's pricing structure is:
- Picture Books from AU$39.99
- Calendars from AU$26.99
- Cards from AU$1.99
- Prints from AU$0.29
A full list of the available print products can be found on the company's Web site. Apple also makes no mention of delivery costs or turnaround time.
We intend to get our hands on some products and compare them to existing photo printing services so stay tuned.
