App users in 35 countries will be able to take their digital pics to the real world.

Samsung announced a deal with publishing platform Blurb when it launched the Galaxy S4, providing users the power to create physical albums from snaps on their device.

Yuza's new social photography app Snapcam now embarks on a similar initiative by partnering with the Xerox Premier Partners Global Network to enable worldwide digital-to-tangible transformations.

Snapcam was recently announced alongside Nokia's new Lumia 1020 handset, which sports a 41MP camera, and will officially launch for Windows Phone 8 in 35 countries from August, with other platforms  to follow.

The Xerox deal will allow Snapcam users to transfer their image collections into printed photo albums that can be delivered directly to their homes. The app comes with region-specific options, with pricing and order options based on location.

As Snapcam evolves, it will have access to Xerox's community of printers across 48 countries and six continents. Books are printed in the area nearest to the delivery address and not the order address, which is designed to cut back on the carbon footprint.

Gina Testa, VP of graphic communications, Xerox, said: "Xerox’s Premier Partners Global Network is ideally suited to handle the print requirements of Snapcam customers – with technology and services that will deliver amazingly colourful, high-quality PhotoBooks. When people turn photos into lasting works of art, it is evident that printing and paper remain viable tools of communication."

Steve Hayward, CEO at Snapcam: “Snapcam is dedicated to thinking globally, but acting locally, which means we can save costs, delivery time and maintain a low carbon footprint. Mobile digital to physical services are growing at a rapid pace and we aim to be at the vanguard of driving mobile use in ordering physical products that are environmentally responsible."
