The History of Fotomat, Part 3

As time went by, and further advancements in technology, Fotomat was forced to make changes in their product line.

It seemed the sun had finally set on Fotomat.  The company was once again forced to make changes.  The main product of Fotomat and their new presence became a virtual one.  Fotomat began offering an online digital photo software on their website:  Fotomat.com. 

Throughout the 2000's, Fotomat worked hard to continue amid a virtual sea of other online competitors and changing technology.  By the first of September, 2009, the software had been discontinued and online functions had ceased.  The website still allows users the ability to maintain online photo albums but recommends that customers begin switching to the Kodak Gallery service.
