LAS VEGASOct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Krome Photos today introduced Krome Business Studio, an app-based photo studio in your pocket that transforms businesses’ mobile and other digital photos into powerful, creative, studio-quality images for e-commerce, social media, advertising and marketing without the time and expense of a custom photo shoot. The service provides photo editing, optional background changes, and imaginative design concepts recommended and executed by Krome’s team of trained design directors – from adding seasonal and holiday themes to embellishing product shots from users’ own phones with props and backdrops that make them shine.

Prices begin at $5 per photo or $35/month for four advanced design images per month, with turnaround times as fast as a few hours. Creative treatments can come from customer requests, Krome’s Gallery of completed customer images, Krome Lookbooks that provide inspiration as well as hundreds of options, and/or recommendations from Krome designers.

The company announced the new business-specific package at the Retail Global e-commerce conference opening today in Las Vegas, expanding a service that has already processed more than 1 million images for over 150,000 customers. The goal is to help small businesses turn their do-it-yourself snapshots into valuable assets that can grow sales and engagement.

Available 24/7 from the phone or the web, Krome Business Studio’s designers can:

  • Straighten and correct distortions caused by mobile phone cameras
  • Adjust colors, light and balance
  • Merge multiple images
  • Remove or add objects
  • Change backgrounds
  • Add creative themes

For e-commerce applications, Krome Business Studio supports all online retailers ranging from Amazon, Etsy and eBay to any e-commerce page. Krome supplies the right photo size for each application and adjusts the background to meet customer needs, whether classic white, holiday-specific or to add context that can help drive sales.

For online advertising and social media posts, the service provides creative backgrounds on product photos to boost customer engagement. Krome can also add logos and other images to help businesses increase brand awareness, and deliver the exact size and format required for Instagram posts, Pinterest pins and Facebook news feeds.

“Krome Business Studio is like having your own art department on call 24 hours a day. It’s a way to turn run-of-the-mill mobile photos into strong and imaginative business images without needing to buy Photoshop or a DSLR camera, hire an editor or photographer, or dig through stock photography albums,” said Krome CEO Eduardo Llach. “Content is everything, and now even small companies and influencers have 24/7 access to Krome’s fast and affordable image editing service with just a tap on their phone.”

Krome offers the same services for consumers with Krome Family Studio. Prices begin at $3 per photo or $10/month for a family pack including two photos per month, unlimited Lookbooks and free re-edits.

The Krome Business Studio app is available immediately for Android phones and tablets. It will launch for iOS devices and on the Krome website at www.kromephotos.com later this month.
