is an attractive alternative to traditional framing for digital
images and art. Your images are floating just off the wall or
desk and fotoflōt
let's the viewer experience the rich color and details without
glass, glare, mats, or frames.
The magnetic mounting system makes it easy to change photos in seconds and displaying without frames or glass lets your image speak for itself.

Carol told us she found fotoflot.com
to be "elegant and very user friendly". She wanted to have a
display wall of photos and change the gallery periodically to
feature different subjects without changing the overall layout.
Carol decided that fotoflot
was ideal for her need. The result is a perfect venue to
display her changing galleries of images.

holders mounted to a wall in the lobby area where they are
visible to customers, visitors, technology partners and the
press. They learned about fotoflōt and realized that it
would enhance their credibility by displaying the logos in a
more professional manner. They ordered all the logos on 10"x10"
for a consistent look and mounted them in their lobby.
Once they had the logos up on the wall, they realized

Hiding an eye sore
Kerry Ellis describes the problem she was trying to
sure we all have those little (or not-so-little) eyesores in
our home that we'd like to conceal somehow - in a
not-too-obvious and kind'a pretty way. In my home, this is the
circuit breaker box, which greets visitors to my home
immediately after they walk in, nestled awkwardly between the
main entrance and a bathroom door on a narrow strip of wall."
As you can see on the left, Kerry solved her problem
and a few extra magnets. She says:
my mother was simply floored by the idea when she visited my
home during Christmas!
Let us know if you have situations, where fotoflōt
panels need to be mounted on metallic surfaces. In many cases,
a set of extra magnets is sufficient to hold the panels in
place. Some of us have fotoflōts
attached to refrigerator doors!
More ways to access your
We have added two more ways to access your images via
photo sharing services. As you probably know, we have been a
print fulfillment option for Google's Picasa software for over
a year, and Google's Picasa Web photo sharing users could
access their online images from fotoflot.com
. A few months ago we also became a print fulfillment option
for Picasa Web users. This means that Picasa Web users can
select a "basket" of images from their gallery, then click on a
link that will transfer them and their basket of images to fotoflot.com
, ready to place an order.
We recently launched a similar relationship with ACD
Systems. They provide ACDSee software - photo editing, photo
management and illustration applications for amateurs,
professional photographers and businesses. There are over 25
million users of ACDSee software worldwide. They have just
launched ACDSee Online, a photo sharing service for use by
their software customers. fotoflōt is live as their first
print fulfillment partner and similar to Picasa Web, a customer
selects a basket of images, then transfers to fotoflot.com
via a link.
If you use a photo sharing service that we don't support
and would like to see a simplified fotoflōt interface to
that service, let us know. We can't promise that we can add it,
but we'll certainly take a look.
