PhotoWorks (Nasdaq: FOTO) rose 3/4 to 3 7/8 Thursday after the Internet photo service company said it will provide photo finishing service for Yahoo!. The service will be promoted on a new film development area on the Yahoo! site.
Yahoo! Photos will offer mail-order film developing and printing, and also gives customers the option of having their pictures posted online in a password-protected area. The service is available immediately, with an introductory offer of free prints and processing on the first roll of film.
“Working together with PhotoWorks will make it easier for all camera users to benefit from the variety of services offered online without needing a digital camera or a scanner,” said Mark Hull, senior producer of Yahoo! Photos.
