What we do
Ofoto, Inc. (www.ofoto.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company, is the leading online digital photo developing service. The Ofoto.com site provides consumers with a secure and easy way to view, store and share their photos with friends and family and get real Kodak prints of their pictures. The site also provides free editing and creative tools.
How we started
Ofoto was founded in July 1999 in Berkeley, California by a diverse group of Internet veterans united by a passion for photography and the shared frustration of being unable to get high-quality prints from their digital cameras. As digital photographers, they knew that it was easier to share digital pictures with family and friends, but they also wanted film-quality prints. From frustration came innovation as they set out to develop an advanced, yet easy-to-use, Internet service. They built their own digital photography lab and opened for business on December 13, 1999 with the launch of Ofoto's Web site, www.ofoto.com. Now great prints are just a click away.
The first year
Ofoto's first year in business brought more than a million members and continuing innovation and improvements, thanks to great feedback from our customers. We added a film processing and digitizing service, international shipping, a large selection of picture frames, several kinds of photo cards, online editing tools and lots of photo borders to enable people to do even more with their pictures.
For film customers, developing and scanning for 35mm, Advanced Photo Systems (APS) and single-use-cameras is just $3.95 per roll. For digital customers, Ofoto provides OfotoNow, our free upload and editing software (compatible with both Macintosh and Windows computers). This software provides a quick and easy way for people to get their digital pictures to Ofoto. We store all your images online in private, password-protected albums at no charge. To share albums, you simply click on the album and send it by email to family and friends.
In June of 2001, Ofoto became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company. As part of the greatest photography company in the world, Ofoto will continue to provide the same service and quality that our customers have come to know and trust. And, with Kodak's support, we'll offer expanded features and new products along with our continuing commitment to be the number one online photography service. In addition to Ofoto.com in the US, Ofoto operates four sites across Europe: ofoto.co.uk, ofoto.de, ofoto.fr, and ofoto.eu.com.
