…a photo printing service w/API support. I want to be able to easily allow someone to print a digital photo I’ve posted to my blog (or any publicly accessible URL for that matter). I looked at all the photo printing services and the only one that came close was Shutterfly. They used to have an HTTP POST method (C4P) to do this but they aren’t supporting it anymore due to the launch of their Pro Galleries.
Two things that would be cool. The first isn’t really API-related but I want to be able to email someone a link like http://example.com/printphoto/ http://www.iamzed.com/photos/img1.jpg and example.com will grab the photo, display a thumbnail, and then give the user the tools to enhance, crop, resize, etc. the photo and choose to get prints. I also want to be able to modify my blog’s template to provide that link on each photo’s page for easy ordering.
Then, also give me a nice API I can use to do this for more advanced applications and even integrate it into them.
Google already offers printing to multiple providers with Picassa. They already know how to do APIs. So, Google, whaddya think? Also, if anyone knows of a service that does this, please comment.
