Kodak EasyShare Gallery is the top choice because of its good print quality. Snapfish is the second choice. Editors liked its "good prints and reasonable prices." Shutterfly has good prints but higher prices. Yahoo!'s printing is inconsistent but the service has numerous editing features. Wal-Mart Photo Center is the last choice due to its "dismal print quality."

Here is the whole article.

PC World - Online Photo Services Shootout

Yahoo printing was terrible when I used it. They have shut down. I used snapfish the last 3 years & really like them. I have recently switched to shutterfly because they are always giving away free products (calendars, photobooks). Now that I'm using lumapix to make photobooks I need a website that will let me download guests pictures in high res. I was going to check out Picasa
I know you can download picture sin high resolution. I just need to see how easy it is for making a group account & sharing.

I have another kodak account so this way I'll be able to view them under my real account too and order pictures if I want to or make a photo book.

Can you set up a group account with Kodak so other people can download their pictures as well? I have a Kodak account already, but I did not see this option.

Has anyone used this? I definitely want to use a site that lets you download pics. It looks good at first glance...

I'm not sure if you can set up a group account, but I just set up a new account with one of my email addresses and I gave all of our guests the login information so that everyone can download their pictures to the same site and view each others pictures.

And then I know if I email the share photos link to myself, then I can log in with my private account and I'll be able to view everyones pictures under my private account and order them if I want to.

Go into your account and go into where you can view your albums. On the right hand side under "things you can do", go to CREATE GROUP. It will walk you through it from there.

I used picasa to look at a friends pictures. If you have seen the thread where I edited my friend's tan line- I downloaded those pics from picasa. It was great, because I could get all their pictures at 300dpi (good enough for most projects). Now I have all their pictures & can do all sorts of photo projects with them. If they shared them using snapfish or shutterfly, I could only get lo resolution copies that wouldnt be good for most things. Or I'd have to do all projects through snapfish or shutterfly which limits options. I know snapfish allows you to buy a high res copy at about $1 per picture.

My concerns about picasa is that you have to download it. I want something that would be really easy for guests to do who are not so computer savy. I also don't know how it works. I downloaded a program once for photo sharing & it took over my computer. Everytime I wanted to open a picture, I had to go through that program. it was annoying. i'd hate to mess up my guests computers. I really don't know how picasa works though, so it might actually be fine.

When someone sends you the link to their pictures on picasa, it works really easily. I just need to know if it would be easy for my guests to add pictures.

My other concern is I don't think guests can buy pictures straight off picasa. If the pictures were on shutterfly, they could easily buy prints.

So I'm thinking my option might be to use shutterfly for sharing pictures. Then if someone adds a picture I really love, I'll ask them to email me the picture so i can use it for other projects. i'm still looking at options though.

OK, I've probably said enough. Can you tell i really love pictureshuh.gif

When you say hi resolution what do you mean? What exactly makes them different? I have to say that any print I have gotten from Kodak, Snapfish or even Wal-mart turns out very crisp and clear. Might be my camera (I use a Rebel) but even the ones I get from other people usually turn out great. Just wonder if I'm missing out on something really cool.

The prints are fine when you order them through snapfish etc. But you can't right click a snapfish picture & save it to then upload to another website & order it. You also can't save it from snapfish, edit it with another program, and re-upload it to snapfish. The resolution will be too low & the print won't look good.

Well, I don't think you can. If anyone knows a way to do this, please let me know. i know you can pay to download it.

For example, my friend uses shutterfly. Before I had a shutterfly account, I tried to copy the pictures off there to upload to my snapfish account to order them. The pictures were too low res to print.

I want all my pictures on my computer so I can make a photobook using lumapix. Then I'll upload the collages onto shutterfly (or another company) to order the book. If the pictures were shared using shutterfly, I couldn't do this. I could make the book on shutterfly, but I'd then be limited to their templates. I also want to be able to edit them in photoshop first.

It looks like we still have not found the Ideal site to make it easy for everyone. I usually use Adobe photoshop, but this goes directly through Kodak & there is not a "sharing" option. I will look into the other 2 suggestions. I have received piccasso pics also but I don't know enough about this site.

I just downloaded picasa. I dont think it was easy enough to use to ask my guest to download it & share their photos this way.

 

It collects all the pictures off your computer & organizes them in the program. I don't want to ask them to use something that starts to make changes to their computer.

 

I might use snapfish because you can purchase the high res images. There might just be a few pictures I will need for making my photobook. If I can't get the person who took them to email it to me, I'll pay to download it.

 

What I'd really love is if everyone mailed me a CD of their images. I think a few of my friends would do it, but I know not everyone will. I don't care to get gifts for our wedding. I just want the pictures!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
