With more than 18 million current members, the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery will remain compatible with pictures taken by all major brands of consumer digital cameras.
The Gallery concept builds upon the best of what Ofoto offers today with expanded possibilities for exciting new products and services for consumers, as well as for online and retail partners.
