    I know that most of you here print your digital photos yourself, but I do not have a photo printer handy, and I was wondering what photo printing services had good quality? I live in a small town, and we only have a Rite-Aid, Kmart, and Walmart nearby. I printed out a family photo at Rite-Aid to send out with Christmas cards this year, and the quality was horrendous! I sent the pictures out anyway, because I was running late on sending cards out, but I don't want to pay money for something so poorly printed again. The picture I printed was a clear, good quality photo, but when it was printed off at Rite-Aid, the colors were off, it seemed pixeled, and I had a weird line under my eye, that made me look like a battered wife. I was not impressed.

    I know Kodak and other places will print and ship digital prints, but I am weary of the quality. Have any of you printed pictures other than home, and if so, what would you recommend that I use? What would you recommend that I stay away from?

    Thanks!

    I ordered about 15 poster-size prints from them and I was happy with the results.

    Just got my first order from www.myphotopipe.com and I am VERY happy with it. I'm a loyal Shutterfly customer, but tried out myphotopipe b/c it's a little cheaper. One thing that I REALLY liked better was the packaging, it was sturdy and hard to bend. I ordered some pics from Shutterfly before xmas and the mailman bent them to put in my mailbox! I was NOT happy! The myphotopipe ones were packaged with cardboard on the inside so it was nearly impossible to bend them.

    Check out http://www.smilebooks.com/. I use it when I want to make photo albums and I just print them out. Hope this was helpful.
