For professional printing services or low-cost?

-> You can't really beat Costco pricing especially when it comes to large prints...

$2.99 up to 12x18"
$9.99 up to 20x30"
(all with money back guaranteed...)

Ok, this is what you can do when you recieve your pics, look in the back you see a line of codes, bring those pics to your local 1hr lab, or Wal-Mart, ask the operator if your pics were printed on Auto or manually adjusted density, color....ect, ask if your exposure is correct (over/under) when you shot those pics, go home refer back to the exif info so next time you can adjust your exposure more precisely, I usually sit with the operator I can see my exposure on the monitor, I know my lab for many years, the guy let me in to see my pics before I give the ok to print.

I strongly believe they print your pics on Auto mode, like you fly an airplane on auto pilot, but that's fine, you expect that, unless you print at any lab where you stay there waiting for the pic in 1hr, you can ask the operator to print them manually ( write down in the box Special Instruction of the envelope). You can also bring a sample printed from your home printer and have them test print about 3 pics in standard size 4X6 cost around 30 cents ea.,pick the best one similar to your sample and order the enlargement base on your selected 4X6.

The code tells a lot about your exposure setting habit and your camera response to that particular lighting.
