Online Tool for Printing on Demand
About this project:
Photolife 2.0 was a printing on demand system that allowed the user to create catalogs, posters, framed pictures, etc.
In 2006 the idea of online printing was completely ground breaking, not only we had to deal with the new idea of sending over personal photos over internet, we had to go against high resolution files in slow internet connections, and rudimentary online payment methods. This project was developed while I was part of NotOnlyWebs in Barcelona Spain.

Do you want to know how this project started?
Photolife had a limited amount of layouts and it considered the possibility to include up to four images per page. We set up this guidelines to simplify the amount of options to the user and make the system fast and light enough so the overall experience would not require big amounts of memory and hard drive space.
The system included a library of swatches and textures to choose from.
The user could display a dropdown menu for specific options related to the area selected. For example, if you selected a page, you could include more pages, change its order, delete it, etc.
