Go Online For Photo Printing

Feb 4, 2008
While sharing photos electronically over the Internet is a great convenience and time saver, there's nothing like holding an actual photo and reminiscing about the special moment. That's why photo printing websites can be such a wonderful resource.

If you pick the right website, getting your prints will be as easy as snapping a picture with your digital camera.

The first thing to look for is a site that's focused on your needs, and not simply trying to sell you more cups, party hats, t-shirts and other photo paraphernalia. That stuff has its place, but first and foremost you want to find a reliable photo printing provider, not a party planner. Hint: If the site is primarily focused on photo sharing, then they're likely going to help you the most with photo printing.

Be careful, though, when choosing a web site that seems solely focused on photo sharing. Sometimes those types of websites are too technical and tend to fall short of quality photo prints. The last thing you want is a website that makes it too hard to print your photos online. The best websites are the ones which allow you to easily upload your photos, choose your pictures in a few clicks and order prints.

Secondly, look for a site that will deliver the prints directly to your door. There's nothing easier than getting home from work, opening your mail and seeing the fruits of your photographic efforts in your hands. That's photo printing. If you have to stop by a store to pick up prints, you'll likely have to wait in line for your prints, and maybe even wait in line to pay! There's really nothing easy about that.

Another thing to look for is an easy photo uploading process. Look for sites that give you the ability to upload entire folders of photos all at once. Then, photo printing is a simple matter - all you do is upload your photos from a party or vacation all at once, pick the ones you want to print, order, pay and wait for them to come in the mail.

Of course, a selection of print sizes is important for photo printing, but you don't want too many choices. Unless you are a professional photographer, or aspire to become one, don't get too caught up in trying to decide which print size is best. It's more important that you get your photos printed.

Finally, keep an eye on price. While it's important to pay a fair price for your photos, many providers lure you in with very inexpensive per print prices, only to increase the price on later orders. Also, the low per print price sometimes only applies to bulk orders of the same print.

The most important thing to look for is an photo printing service that understands how much you cherish your photos. After all, these are not just photos you are entrusting to them - these are your memories. And your memories are worth a lot.
