    Hello!

    Well, I always use Walgreens, but recently, they have been doing a bad job so I wanted to try a new place. So, where else better to ask than a forum with PHOTOGRAPHERS!

    Any recomendations?

    THANKS!:thumbup: :thumbup:

    I use Walgreens for stuff that isn't important (I sorta work there), but lately I've been using http://www.shutterfly.com for higher quality prints. I have been quite happy with them, and good prices, too.

    Wow, I didn't know that you could upload them to a website and they would deliver. Thats cool but the only problem is that I have Dial-Up so I cant upload the 7 MP pictures; if I do, my internet times out.

    Hows Wal-Mart Photos?

    The ones around here are the same/worse than Walgreens. One of the Walmarts near here has the exact same photo machine as Walgreens does, the other has a much older one. Their workers are usually stretched a lot more thinly too, so I hear a lot more horror stories of lost and mixed up pictures, and the machine breaking down due to not being taken care of. BUT....it varies from store to store, so you'll have to do your own investigating, really.

    Just depends on the Wal-Mart. One of the ones close to me has a great crew working there and does as good, if not better, than some pro labs. The other Wal-Marts in the area are just so-so.

    I use mpix for very large prints or wallets because they cut them so nicely :D Otherwise I have a printer.
