Hi all,

Not sure where to post this, so here goes:

I'm looking for a good, fast, inexpensive photo-processing site.

I tried winkflash.com but having a devil of a time actually UPLOADING the photos... they either take forever or my Internet Explorer crashes.

So any other suggestions of sites that fit the above criteria?

Thanks so much!

Ted

If you can get a hold of it, check out the May 2006 issue of "Popular Photography". It has ratings on the 10 biggest online processors. Personally, I use Adoramapix, but I just received a 20x24 poster print from Mpix, and am quite happy with their service as well/

Thanks for the tip about the Popular Photography issue... I'll look into it!

Much appreciated!

Not sure about the US, but in Canada CostCo is online and the costs are low
4*6 are 19cents CDN., 12*18 is ~4$CDN. Print quality is good.

Account and upload at http://www.costco.ca/en-CA/photocent....aspx?cat=2781
pick up next day at your nearest CostCo warehouse.

Depending on what you are looking for (professional prints to sell or personal prints to have or something in between) there are a few to look in to.

We use MPix and they are fast. I am currently stationed overseas and usually get my prints in a week after I order. The quality is very good and we sell these and the customers really like them as well.

If you are just going for personal prints then you could try Ofoto or even Walmart online processing. I do believe that most companies provide you with a few free prints or at least a sample of the paper.

In my opinion, Mpix is the way to go.

For pro prints use whcc.com They aren't the cheaps but they do have free 2 day shipping if you have at least a $12 order.

Their results are best I have seen.

I use Costco as well, but you will need membership, I think, even for photos. The 4x6 is 17 cents each and you pick it up at a local Costco. I've read that 24x36 is $17 including shipping and is NOT done locally, it's shipped in a tube.
