    Where do you guys develop your pictures for hard copies?Won't online sites compress your pictures for you when you update, therefore the quality is not the same? I usually do mine at costco, but that was when i had my p&s. I've moved up since then. lol

    For regular "family" pictures, I am currently using "Kodak Gallery" and getting good results. I upload them a high quality jpeg at 300ppi using sRGB color space and the prints are very accurate with good color, very good blacks, and very inexpensive. For anything larger than 5X7, I do them myself on an Epson 400.

    I like Mpix, especially their metallic and true B&W papers. If you specify, they will do no color correction or adjustment to your pics.

    Mpix has a very good reputation for most printing.

    Prints

    I reside in a small MN town and we have a Walgreen and Wally place, but we also have one small photo shop in a little mall, which I use because they can do prints up to 36 by most any length.

    The idea is that small and knowledge goes a long way...to fine end product. I mean, this place will run the print to specs and re run it, until you are satisfied and even do it while you are there to help.
