    Eg; walmart, staples, target, etc? I want to take my memory stick to have photos printed. Where is the best spot to do this? I went to CVS one time and didn't like the machine, haha

      i had photos from our civil ceremony printed at target earlier this week, and i was not happy with the quality because apparently on their machines there is some auto resize/crop option that is the default, and if you dont know to change it to turn the default off, people's heads will get cut off in a lot of photos like mine did. i am so ticked, that i am going back to target to ask for a refund. when i looked at the photos after getting them back on monday, over half of them had bad cropping issues. and its not like the people who work at target's photo dept are especially knowledgable about photo printing IMHO. when i get photos printed from the wedding next month, i'll probably get them from mpix.com. it's slightly more expensive, but worth it.

            Sam's has a very good photo center. You can upload the pics and pick them up 2 days later. It's like film service used to be. They are very high quality and the price is great.

            I have some personal moral objections to Sam's and Walmart so I really try not to shop there.

            I've had good luck at Target at the little Kodak machine that you control.

            I usually order direct from Kodakgallery.com or dotphoto.com

            I don't know if that helps at all LOL

              I always print my photos at Walmart and I am always happy. I send them through the website and pick them up when I get the email. I never bring the memory stick in though.

                I always print mine online through Kodak. You can either have them delivered to a pharmacy (I use the CVS right by my office) or to your home. You pay a small "shipping" charge but it is so easy and convenient.

                  I'll admit I'm a photo snob, and won't go to Walmart or the Kodak photomachines. I want good quality when I get my pictures printed out. There is a company here in Canada (not sure if it's available in the States, pretty sure it's not) called Black's, and they are who I go to. They have a website (like Walmart) you can upload to, then you just decide what store you want to pick them up at, or have them sent to your home. I worked at a Black's for two years and reprinted some pictures I had done at Walmart years before, and the difference was astounding. Brighter colours, sharper focus...it's all in the chemicals I guess.

                  They are more expensive than other places by about twenty cents, but it's worth it for the quality in my opinion.

                    I agree with you Jennifer. I like going to blacks for the quality!
