    Say I have a picture that I want an 8 x 10 copy of, do I take the negative to the store or do I take my 4 x 6 copy?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Usually the negative, but there are machines in some stores that you can do reprints up to 8x10 picture to picture. At Walgreens, they have a Kodak picture maker and the Fuji Alladin...both with make a reprint from a picture. But...correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you get better quality from the negative.

    You are right with enlargements but nowadays they just digitally scan the negative and print onto the paper. (I think)

    Ok, I guess taking both of them in is a safe bet.

    Thanks.
