CVS/pharmacy Launches CVS Express Photo App for Facebook
Customers Can Print Photos Directly From Facebook and Pick Up In About An Hour at CVS/pharmacy

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

CVS/pharmacy, the nation's leading retail pharmacy, today announced the launch of their new CVS Express Photo App. With this easy-to-use application, Facebook users can order prints from their Facebook albums without leaving the website, with prints ready for pick up in about an hour at their local CVS/pharmacy.

Customers can find the application by heading to the CVS/pharmacy Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cvs. To get started, click the "Photo App" tab at the top of the page. Once customers provide permission to allow the application to access their account to retrieve photos, prints can be ordered in four easy steps: choose photos, review cart, select store and then submit to print. Three print sizes are currently available through the application; customers can order 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10 prints.

"Facebook has become a popular and easy way to share photos online with family and friends," said Grant Pill, Vice President of Merchandising for CVS/pharmacy. "We introduced the CVS Express Photo App to give people the ability to print photos and share them offline with the same ease by picking them up at any CVS/pharmacy location in as little as an hour."

The new CVS Express Photo App, which was developed by Marketing Drive, simplifies the process of printing photos from your Facebook albums. The application has been designed to alert users when an image is not high-resolution enough for clear print quality, typically when printed at larger sizes. To ensure high-quality prints, CVS/pharmacy recommends using Facebook's high-res uploader or reducing the print size. For more information on the application, go to www.facebook.com/cvs. For more information about Marketing Drive, please visit http://www.marketingdrive.com/.
