KODAK MOMENTS: A Beautiful New Storytelling App

The iconic Kodak is at it again, with new innovations to celebrate the world of picture taking in today’s all-digital world.  We love this new app from Kodak Alaris to experience visual storytelling.  It transforms photos into beautiful Moments worth sharing. While the app is free, the plan is to monetize it by offering Kodak-branded photographic print and gifting items.

 

The new KODAK MOMENTS App offers an array of narrative tools meant to awaken the storyteller within everyone.  Pictures can be enhanced with beautifully designed text, block quotes and more.  You follow along to see how people tell their stories and share their Moments. Users get notifications whenever friends start to follow their KODAK MOMENTS or have liked one of their KODAK MOMENTS.

The experience is also completely ad-free, ensuring one’s KODAK MOMENTS App news feed is a place for the most memorable Moments. Follow the conversation on Twitter

History of Photography, Eastman Kodak’s Vaults

The reason so many photography hobbyist and photo imaging industry leaders are raving fans of Tips from the Top Floor, a weekly show about photography, is because of Chris Marquardt. When he’s not on a commercial assignment, Chris brings his workshops to Germany, the US, Canada, Japan and even the Himalayas. He also is behind PocketChris, the photo instructor in your pocket. Watch Chris live all over the world, and as the Photo Guy on the Tech Guy Radio Show with Leo Laporte.

 

As a regular Chris fan, one of his recent Tips from the Top Floor video podcast interviews was a gem of a discovery–a private one-hour tour of the Kodak Technology Vault in the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York. We hope you enjoy this genuine flashback (Throwback Thursday) adventure into the rich history of photography with Todd Gustavson, the museum’s technical curator Todd Gustavson.

 

This was a personal “Throwback Thursday” moment for us, as many years ago, during a tour of the entire Kodak Park facility we too got a tour of The George Eastman House.

 

Thanks Chris and Todd!
