    I did just to see how their prints come out. They're pretty decent, and free! Overall I'm pretty pleased and for a regular price of $2.99 I'll probably print more.

    I've had some 8-by-10's done by a Walgreens in the small Louisiana town of Boutte; the folks there did a really nice job! The Walgreens website works well; post the images, pick up the finished prints an hour or so later. Not MPix or one of the other high-end printers, but not bad at all.

    Very good to learn about this. I have two recent images I was actually considering printing anyway; this gives me a wonderful excuse :thumbup:

    Edit: They're where I get most of my prints done. The Fuji's do a really good job for the price.

    I've never been happy with prints done there, but I'll try again....it's probably my crap photos more than anything.

    If you need any special services, the Walgreens of the world won't be your destination. For an important birthday portrait of my grandson, I used a local print shop; gave them a JPEG and my layered PSD file. They saw some flaws that would have been noticeable in the 16 x 20 print I ordered, and they went ahead and fixed the problems. I was very pleased with the outcome. For any future special assignments, I'll be seeing them again.

    So I took advantage of this offer; it was probably a good thing I didn't pay for them. The prints, technically, are fine. However, I uploaded two images in 6x6 format figuring I'd trim the long side (one is my avatar image). No, young kid running the Fuji machine has probably never seen a square format, flipped and cropped them to fit on the 8x10 sheet. I may go back tomorrow and discuss it with them, maybe not. But it was a humorous reminder that people don't always see things the same way.

    You can't really expect them to get that stuff right. When printing an 8 by 10, either crop to 8 x 10 or add bars at top and bottom, but this is certainly a good reminder for infrequent printers. We get used to cropping to suit our needs on the screen without regard to printing aspect ratios.
