....its own photo printing service.....


Apple discontinues its own photo printing service, recommends third-party Photos Projects apps instead

....Apple is discontinuing its Photo Print Products service, which has been integrated into iPhoto since its launch in 2002. The service expanded from simple prints, to albums, photo books, and calendars. It stayed around on the Mac when iPhoto was replaced with the Photos app a couple of years ago, but the service never made the leap to iOS.

Later this year, Apple will stop offering the service altogether. A new message in macOS 10.13.6 Photos app says that final orders for Apple’s built-in service must be placed by September 30, 2018.

In macOS Mojave, Photos already does not include any references to Apple’s integrated Photo Print Products service.

Apple’s recommendation is that customers download a third-party app that includes a Photos Projects extension. This API was introduced in High Sierra, and allows photo services to integrate photo printing UI inside the Apple Photos app. Payment processing and printing is all handled by the third-party.

Services that support Photos Projects include Mimeo Photos, Wix, GoodTimes, WhiteWall and Shutterfly. If you are running Mojave, the new Mac App Store is featuring some of these apps in an editorial story.



the end.............of the innocence.....?!

Used it many a time; for post-vacation photo books, for Christmas gifts for family out-of-state, and for regular prints from wallet to poster sized. It was great and the quality was always top-notch.



same as it ever was

They were nicely done. I did a calendar for gifts and people loved it. I do recall a printing defect, but they redid it and it looked very good.

The photo books were also very nice.

Right now, I'm setting up a photo book in the Costco Photo Center website, which works very well indeed.

That's sad. Their service was excellent - truly great work.

And their letterpress printing was very beautiful.

I’m going to miss that service. Apple is slowly getting rid of all the things I use.

Yes.

I remember when it debuted. It hasn't got a lot of attention, but I've seen a few books in person, and they were nicely done. A good value, actually.
