Photo Digital Printing

By: treatrea
Whether you like to be served, or you are a do-it-yourself, you can get beautiful, high-quality prints from your digital camera.

There are two ways you can print your digital photos and get photographic quality prints for your scrap books or your wallet.

Online or Retail Store Prints - After you take your digital photos, go online to a site like Shutterfly, Snapfish, KodakGallery (previously Ofoto), Photoworks, or VistaPrint among many other choices.

On these sites you can upload your photos into your own private gallery. From there you can order prints in all sizes and have them shipped to your home with a minimal shipping fee. You will have to register on the site, and upload your pictures from your camera to your computer so that you have them available to upload to the site.

Major retailers like Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and other regional or national stores with an online store, will also allow you to upload your pictures and order prints to be mailed for to be picked up.

Additionally, you can take your memory card out of your camera and take it to your local pharmacy or to a discount store and look for the photo print customer service desk. Here you will hand your memory card to a customer service person to have your prints made. Some of these stores also have kiosks where you can order your prints and download pictures for printing using step-by-step instructions on the kiosk touch screen.

Digital Photo Printers for the Home - The other option you have to print your digital pictures is to get your own photo quality printer. Companies like Dell, HP, Epson, Samsung, Sony and others make photo lab quality printers to instantly print your digital photos.

Some printers allow you to print your photos by docking your camera directly on the printing station and downloading your photos there.

Others require you to upload your pictures to your computer and then send them to your photo quality printer to get prints of your digital photos. If you are in the market for one of these digital photo printers, you will want to check the resolution and print quality and figure in the cost of photo quality paper, and the color printer cartridges with which you will print your digital photographs.

For some people, this cost outweighs the advantage of getting instant pictures. It really depends on how much you plan to use your digital camera and how often you want prints of the pictures you take.

Whether you choose to let someone else print your digital pictures and send them to you, or go to a local store and upload your digital pictures to get prints, or buy your own printer and go the self-service route, you are bound to get beautiful, high-resolution pictures with little or no muss and fuss!
