    Hello, I sell my digital images to the clients and they are needing a release form to get them printed....even from places like Walmart. I've used a very generic one in the past, but am looking for something more professional looking/sounding. Anyone know where I can get one??
    Thanks!

    Apparently they are needing rather large prints because taking them on memory cards to the kiosks wouldn't require it. So you might want to specify which size enlargements are permitted and if it is a one-time release or unlimited release.
