I don’t know if I’ve ever shared this with you, but I used to be really into scrapbooking. I mean, really into it during the early Creative Memories days when there was no such thing as digital scrapbooking. In fact, I might even say that I enjoyed it more than interior decorating there for a couple of years.
Sadly, I’ve let that passion fall by the wayside, so much so that now, I can’t even remember the last time I held actual photographs in my hand. Do you remember those days of taking a roll of film in to be processed, and then the excitement as you opened up that envelope to thumb through all of the newly-printed pictures to find the best ones? I actually miss those days.
Everything is digital now. My pictures go from my my digital camera to my computer, and then to various online places like Facebook or my blog. But actually printing out pictures? I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that.
So I love that Canon is trying to help people bring their digital files to life once again with their new Canon PIXMA printer.
Yep, you read that right. Without a computer. Pretty cool, right?
And with the PIXMA Cloud app on your mobile device, you can print from anywhere.
Are you letting that sink in? Print from anywhere without a computer.
The Perfect Printer For Us Creative Types
Think of how convenient this could be for us creative types. While I’m out and about in town, I often come across things that I find inspiring — things that might inspire a project in my own home. I often take pictures with my phone, but so often once the picture is taken and stored on my phone, I forget to go back and review it later. So that inspiration is pretty much lost. Out of sight, out of mind. (I’m not the best with staying on top of my photo organization, or emptying the pictures off of my phone. 😀 )
With the PIXMA Cloud app, I can be out and about, come cross something inspiring, snap a picture, and print. Then when I get back home to my office, that inspiration is sitting there on my desk right at my fingertips. No longer “out of sight, out of mind.”
I can’t wait to put this printer to use. I feel my creativity about to shift into overdrive. 😀
