The myriad of online photo album services that are available today have been threatening to make the humble printed photo album redundant for some time now (for example, we now have over 50 photo APIs in our directory). Despite this services like SnapFish, which offer the ability to easily print customized photo books, have remained incredibly popular. Started 10 years ago and still running strong with its new owner HP, SnapFish reportedly has over 85 million users worldwide. Now developers can get in on the action with the newly announced Snapfish Publisher initiative.
