Pict Launches Pretty Tools for Brands to Create “Shoppable Photos”

Pict today launches a set of free (for the moment) Web and mobile tools for brands to publish photos that include product information and sharing links to Pinterest and elsewhere.

Pict is backed by Lowercase Capital, Forerunner Ventures, Opus Capital, Angelpad, 500 Startups and others.
