The web is filled with numerous photo solutions offering different features with which one can edit, store and share photos with friends and family. Different websites offer services such as photo books and even personalized gift items such as t-shirts, mugs, etc. Now, an online service called Framous allows users to create fun and easy collages and buy them.
Launched in January 2012 and headquartered in Massachusetts, Framous builds on the idea that people have spent years collecting memories with friends and family, and an easy way to celebrate these milestones is to show them off as customized frame art.
The web service uses a specially designed application which allows users to pick pictures from their Facebook albums, or even their friends’ albums and assemble them into a stylish collage in four easy steps. The website requires you to login through Facebook and then access your most liked photos to create the collage. Users can then arrange the photos in any combination.
To get started, all one needs to do is log on to www.framousapp.com and connect using Facebook. Once his/her Facebook account is connected with Framous, the user needs to select a layout for the collage after which he/she can pull out photos from albums. The user can organize the collage as they like and once it is done, it can be ordered from the website, delivered right at your doorstep. Framous uses 12 X 18 frames of superior quality and the photo collages are printed on durable, professional quality photo paper and assembled ready to hang on delivery.
Framous doesn’t need an unnecessary additional application download and users can even work on an iPad since it doesn’t require Adobe Flash to operate. The website is extremely user friendly, the interface designed such that it can be used by anybody. Furthermore, the non flash based editor makes it simple to create new and innovative features.
Custom collages are great for decorating homes and preserving memories, and also serve as excellent gift options. This is the primary aim of Framous - to make memories more stylish and fun. The frames retail for $39.99 plus shipping, although the service is only available in the US right now. Framous is looking to expand to international shipping as well, but it still has a long way to go. But the idea behind the start-up is very unique and by allowing users to “get framous” quickly and easily using their favorite Facebook photos, the service is sure to be a hit online.
