I have been very happy with the prints from Walmart, they use Fuji paper, which I really like. I don't like the Kodak paper that CVS and Walgreens use.

Thanks for the tut golfgold.

I try to match colors space in my photoshop with that of a printing lab. This way it will be WYSIWYG. Exact colors!

Default printing pictures

do you have a printer for your computer ?

if you do not I recomend the Epson line of ultra high res ink Jet printers like the R260 or all in 1 RX580

they have the same printer heart but the RX580 also copies, scans, and faxes

they are relatively cheap to buy and use and they are the best in their class

if you want something the next step up there are printers that are dye sublimation ( hope its spelled right ) that are a bit more expensive but ther produce awesome pix

if you would rather just have someone else print them for you I can print them for about 4 dollars a picture depending on the size you want.

if you are in connecticut I could show you some examples of the photographs they make

I won a 3rd place award in the North Haven photography contest which may help you to understand these printers make great pictures

Moderator cut: no solicitation, please

Oh, I got your advice too late. I just recently bought a Brother all-in-one. Actually, I just print out photos of family and friends--nothing fancy. I did take the disks to Walmart and they did a good job on the Fuji machine, especially the ones I had done in One Hour. The ones that were sent away weren't as good. They were very nice and helpful. I'm in Georgia. Thanks for the advice.

I get mine done at Wal-Green's, because it's the closest to where I live
after putting pics on computer and cropping and fix'in red eyes and what ever else I want to do, upload to Wal-Green's and by the time I get dressed and get out there, they are ready for pick up

I'm giving another shout out for Costco! I am a wedding photographer and I do all my own editing at home, upload them online and they are ready for me in about an hour. Sometimes I do some of my own printing, but if I have alot of prints that need to be done then I send them to Costco rather than use my own ink and paper. I think they have very reasonable prices on their larger sizes, too. Plus, I love that you can choose gloss or matte. I love their matte

Costco - Photos

Costco certainly sounds good. The only reason I haven't used them is that I don't belong and it's kind of far from my house. So after spending the $40 to join, I probably wouldn't use them for much else. I'll rethink that, though. Thanks for the advice.
