Ritz & Wolf Camera Kiosks Link to Facebook

Customers of Ritz and Wolf Camera & Image stores across the country may have noticed a new feature when using a store photo kiosk this month – a connection to Facebook. According the Lucidiom, the company that provides kiosk software used by Ritz and Wolf Camera, the “Facebook Connect” feature has been rolled out in Ritz and Wolf photo kiosks nationwide. The feature lets customers connect to the social networking site to make prints from images stored there. If you’re sitting on loads of Facebook photos, you can download them into a Ritz or Wolf kiosk and turn them into prints, calendars, photo books, you name it.

The Facebook Connect feature also lets you upload their images to Facebook when they’re making their print orders in store, but you’ll be charged a ‘convenience’ fee for the pleasure. I’m not sure why it’s “convenient” to pay for something you could do for free at home, but your mileage may vary.

If you’re a Ritz or Wolf customer and have used this feature, let us know what you thought about it in the comments.
