    I was wondering. Where do most of you get your prints done? Walmart, Best Buy??? Do them at home?
    And also, where do you do your 'photo books'??
    Just wondering, just in case I get good enough to start selling some photo's:wink:

    I print my work at home. One of the major advantages of digi is the 90 second photo lab. Selling your photography is a whole other story.

    I print at home or I get them developed at Snapfish.com or Mpix.com.

    I did it at home for the longest time. Nowever, lately, I've decided to use Costco. They're great!

    I have used a few different stores like Cstco or Future Shop to do pictures. Seems cheaper to do that than print at home?

    I was looking into getting an Epson R2400 for a while. Decided that for the money I could buy a lot of prints.

    I think it all depends on how much you plan on printing. I think it might be wise to invest in a printer if you were to be printing many many prints. It also depends on how patient you are. Are you a right now type of person or do you have time to wait for prints.

    I have an Epson 4800 which I use for my printing. It gives me full control. :)
