ArcSoft, Inc. Key Developments

ArcSoft Partners with Mixbook to Create Printed Photo Books Using Smartphones

ArcSoft, Inc. announced a partnership between its digital photo makeover app, Perfect365, and the highly popular photo book app Mosaic by Mixbook. For the first time ever, Perfect365 users can use their flawlessly-edited images to create lasting memories in a Mosaic photo book -- a sleek, 20-page album that can be created in less than five minutes. The average photo book can take hours to create, making the time to finish personalized albums a challenge. Mosaic streamlines the process, taking users from photos to a finished book in a snap -- all on a smartphone. After users have snapped a few selfies and loaded photos from their camera rolls, ArcSoft's Face Detection technology takes over, automatically mapping a person's eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and hairline. This allows users to create professional-looking touched-up photos by choosing from dozens of pre-set templates for a flattering, realistic makeover inspired by today's hottest styles, timeless looks or natural palettes. Users can also customize their look with nearly 20 tweaking tools that whiten teeth, brighten eyes, banish blemishes and much more. When 20 images are perfected and saved to My Favorites in Perfect365, they can be quickly added to a Mosaic album with just a few clicks. There, they are immediately transformed into a high quality, 20-page, 7 by 7 inch photo book, complete with a durable linen cover featuring cutout windows that give a sneak peak of the photos within. For a flat rate of $20 (plus shipping), users receive a one-of-a-kind keepsake on their doorstep in just four days. The Mosaic feature is available on Perfect365 for iOS and will soon expand to Android.
