You can always take your pics to a photo developer and have the photos printed. The advantage of the digital is you can do your own editing and choose which photos you want enlarged.

The reason why the job from the photo-dealer might be better, is their mini-labs use a 300dpi laser scanner to put your photo image files on to conventional photographic print media.

Your prints will look and feel like photos, and your printer will not compete at the moment for large volume permanent copies on thick paper, in the 1-2hr service in-store processing can offer.

I would say this should apply to images transferred off your media, in the store, but web services will be limited by the quantity and file size you can get over your connection. Although great for the 1Mpix users.

Be prepared for colour to be different (some say richer) as your rgb images get transferred to photographic dye colours with different colorimetry.

So to re-visit the first post, either critically compare images at the equivalent 8x10 or larger size on a good monitor and try getting a full res. cam pic file printed in store.
