    Photo printing - how?

    Hi, just wondering how people get their photos printed these days? I have a bajillion photos in digi formats, and I've got lots of ideas about how to use them once printed, but I'm a bit unmotivated to schlep down to the shops with a thumb drive & stand there with one of those stupido uploading machines.

    So, I'd love to know where & how people get their photos done these days. What sort of options are there? Quality of prints? I would love to hear your recommendations.

    Can't you do it on big w website? And then you just have to go pick them up? I'm not sure tho....it's been a long time since I did it.

    I've always used snapfish and never had a problem. Pick up at Kmart but I always pay for delivery. They have good sales too.

    Snapfish has always been good for me and they hassle free for refunds if you aren't happy with the product.

    I use Snapfish (can pick up at KMART - but I pay for delivery) - also use Ted's Cameras which you can upload to web and pick up in store.

    I do use the machines sometimes, when I want photos same day it seems the easiest way.

    Try momento, they are an online company that do professional images but also do prints for the general public with great prices and amazing quality. If you are getting enlargements it's worth paying the little bit extra through them than using the photo booth places as you can't compare the quality levels.

    We've been pretty happy with Big W online.

    We do it all at home, then we pick it up when we're at the shops.

    I do a print run every month (sometimes order a few months at a go) and a 6 x 8 inch soft cover photobook of the DSs periodically (every 2 months for the first 12 months, then every 6 months).

    I also do a hardback every now and then of my arty farty shots.
