• About Us

    On June 9th, 2010 (otherwise known as "Day of Rock!" in Japan), Glams Co., Ltd. began in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan.

    Previously a guitar lecturer at Yamaha Popular Music School, Daisuke Miura created his own E-Commerce company selling apparel, where he met his business partner and bandmate, Blain Hosford. Everyday they spent hours editing product photos for their online store, to which they realised that there must be a way to combat this time wasting, mind numbing, expensive but necessary task. Through their meeting not only did they write songs together, but created the revolutionary software ZenFotomatic. 


    To put it in perspective; the life of an 80 year old human being if converted into seconds will equate to about 250 million seconds. The same number of seconds that ZenFotomatic took to process images in January 2016. This is the reality of how much time ZenFotomatic saves.


    We at Glams use a one-of-a-kind technology, born from an identity which goes beyond nationality. Instead of wasting time on meaningless things, we wish to reconnect people to what's more important.

    When owning an online store, it is essential to create beautiful product photos. However, this takes time and money, right?

    ZenFotomatic is an intelligent automation software that can batch process, clear-cut, resize, whiten backgrounds and so much more with just one click.
