the global leader of image-intelligent technologies, today announced a
partnership between its award-winning digital photo makeover app, Perfect365,
and the highly popular photo book app Mosaic
by Mixbook. For the first time ever, Perfect365 users can use their
flawlessly-edited images to create lasting memories in a Mosaic photo
book – a sleek, 20-page album that can be created in less than five
The average photo book can take hours to create, making the time to
finish personalized albums a challenge. Mosaic streamlines the process,
taking users from photos to a finished book in a snap – all on a
“The great thing about photo albums is that they keep your favorite
memories accessible and tangible. It’s a conversation starter, a great
gift, or the kind of item you want displayed on your coffee table,” says
Vickie Wei, Director of Corporate Marketing for ArcSoft, the creative
team behind Perfect365. “But picture-worthy occasions such as camping
trips, vacations and spontaneous candids aren’t always so forgiving.
Rather than spending hours playing around with filters and editing tools
to adjust your portraits, Perfect365 and Mosaic make it so easy to bring
your memories to life, or quickly create a fantastic present for any
number of occasions.”
How Perfect365 works
After users have snapped a few selfies and loaded photos from their
camera rolls, ArcSoft’s industry-leading Face Detection technology takes
over, automatically mapping a person’s eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and
hairline. This allows users to create professional-looking touched-up
photos by choosing from dozens of pre-set templates for a flattering,
realistic makeover inspired by today’s hottest styles, timeless looks or
natural palettes. Users can also customize their look with nearly 20
tweaking tools that whiten teeth, brighten eyes, banish blemishes and
Creating the photo album: So easy, you have no excuse not to finish it
When 20 images are perfected and saved to My Favorites in Perfect365,
they can be quickly added to a Mosaic album with just a few clicks.
There, they are immediately transformed into a high quality, 20-page, 7
by 7 inch photo book, complete with a durable linen cover featuring
cutout windows that give a sneak peak of the photos within. For a flat
rate of $20 (plus shipping), users receive a one-of-a-kind keepsake on
their doorstep in just four days. The Mosaic feature is available on
Perfect365 for iOS and will soon expand to Android.
Whether it’s a honeymoon album or modeling portfolio, BFF memento or
“mom and me” token, Perfect365 and Mosaic are excited to be
collaborating on a unique gift idea that transforms memories into an
attractive, meaningful keepsake.
"Perfect365 has created a wonderful app that makes it dead simple to
beautify your portraits,” says John Flaaten, Director of Business
Development, Mixbook. “Through our partnership with Perfect365 we have
made it easy to take your pixel-perfect iPhone photos to your coffee
table in a Mosaic book. The barriers from photo capture and editing to
print are minimized with our partnership. This is an exciting example of
how popular editing and photo commerce apps can collaborate to
deliver consumers beautiful and seemingly effortless photo products."
Recent innovations and enhancements to the award-winning Perfect365 app
continue to fuel its popularity. Already listed as a Top 10 Photo App in
the iTunes, Google Play and Windows stores, Perfect365 has now reached
more than 38 million downloads in record time.
