What's even better? You pay no recurring charges, and are then only responsible for your own hosting, lab, and merchant account fees. 2008 was an explosive year for PickPic, beginning with its acquisition by WHCC in January, and culminating with the winter releases of both version 3.3 and a powerful fulfillment tool designed to automate image preparation.
