BT unveils digital photo kiosks

Digital camera users can process their pictures on the go at ten new photo kiosks installed at locations across the UK.

BT has linked up with photo company Fujifilm to trial the kiosks that let you transfer and edit photos before sending them off to be printed.

According to BT, the new kiosks are ideal for tourists, people without access to a PC with the right software, or anyone who wants quick access to prints from their digital camera.

Insert your camera memory card or CD into the terminal to copy files, view and edit images by cropping, enlarging or adjusting colour, and order prints and CDs of your photos, with payment taken by credit or debit card.

Paul Hendron, director of BT Payphones, said: "This is the fastest growing and most exciting branch of photography. This new service is fantastic and really will bring your photos to life. It's easy to use, handy and timesaving".

The kiosks are available at London Luton Airport, the Blackpool Tower, St John's Shopping Precinct in Liverpool, the Coppergate shopping centre in York and in the Corus hotels, at Hyde Park in London and Stratford-upon-Avon on a six-month trial. If successful, further kiosks will be launched at major tourist attractions, hotels, airports and shopping centres.

BT said it is also looking at other options for the kiosks, including the browsing and printing service from libraries of online images. For further information and pricing details, visit BT's digital photo kiosk website.
