  2. raje says:

    hmm! what about dotphoto? I like their site too and was wnodering why that is not listed.

  3. Michael says:

    Do any of these sites have the capability of using the metadata (standard exif) info in the file to extract the date taken and put onto the print?

  4. Dean says:

    Good question, I’m not exactly sure on that. You would have to check it out for yourself. Anybody know the answer to this question?

  5. Aaron says:

    >There is no need to worry about loosing your priceless photos anymore.

    How do you loose something?

    Lose = opposite of found
    Loose = opposite of tight; opposite of chaste

    FWIW: Shutterfly’s customer service sucks and Wal*Mart’s 4×6 prints are now only 9¢ shipped, beating Shutterfly’s pre-purchased photo plans.

  6. Dean says:

    Thanks for the spelling update. Thank god for spell check.

  7. Kara says:

    Shutterfly customer service was awesome for me they messed up on my book and then sent me another one immediately overnight and in the end I got to have 2 books!

  8. Marc says:

    Please check out Officemax!
    They have an awsome price of $0,05 for 4×6 photoprints.

  9. Sonny says:

    What about Bayphoto.com I heard they are like Smugmug for professional photographers. Anyone know how good (or bad) they are?

  10. Dean says:

    I never heard of Bayphoto.com. Smugmug seems to be very popular among professional photographers because of the unlimited storage and features.

  11. [...] 1.  PHOTOGRAPHS AND MEMORIES Hopefully you already have some digital photos of your sweetie.  Create a photo book or collage.  If you have a Mac, the photo ordering process is built right into iPhoto.  Otherwise, there’s Picasa (Google’s free photo editing program), or you can order photo books, mugs and other photo gifts  from CVS or check out our top 5 photo printing sites review.

    thanks so much for this page, I was looking for this information exactly and you gave me some new ideas as I’ve always used Kodak. I’m going to check out Wal-Mart and some of the others you mention now. Thanks again!

  13. Walgreens has a promotion good until next week. 50% off all prints which makes it .09 per 4×6 print with pick up from store or shipped. Coupon code is HALFPRICE. Email me to let me know if this works for you milan6700@yahoo.com

  14. Rebecca says:

    I found Kodak cumbersome to use and expensive. Shutterfly wasn’t too bad, but I found a 30% discount going on now until the end of 2009 on inkubook.com. I ordered my disney vacation photobook from inkubook.com with that 30% discount. Their software is easy to use and the quality is great. I even used a Mac and I had no problems. Many sites suck on the Mac, but inkubook worked great and the price is right. Last year I did a huge wall calendar from inkubook too, since it was a good price, easy to use, and excellent quality I’m sticking with them.

  15. Joshua says:

    Actually, there is a site, winkflash.com, that beats all of the above sites. They offer $0.06 per 4×6 print, very inexpensive shipping, and 50 FREE prints with your first order! They also have monthly photo contests that you can enter for a chance to win a ton of free prints. I use them all the time and their shipping is really fast and the prints are of amazing quality!

  16. billy says:

    shutterfly.com SUC!K!S the worst user interface and the least intuitive site. I could have watercolored faster than navigate their weakly and poorly written code. Good Bye Shutterfly

  17. Joe says:

    Winkflash.com has good prices but they only allow a maximum of 9 photo’s per page. Snapfish allows 15 photo’s per page. I found that Clark and York websites were an identical setup as Snapfish. The only difference is $0.20 cheaper. I think they are the same same site owner creating competition for themselves.

  18. Audrey says:

    Clark’s Photo lab is also good. Right now their special is 1/2 price prints, which mean .04 per print.

  19. Christianne says:

    I have had great customer service from Shutterfly, as I am in Canada, my products often don’t arrive in a timely manner and so several times I have called and had the item sent or credited to my account and then low and behold the item shows up, yeah for free stuff.

    I do find their photobooks especially the custom one, to be very slow and hard to use, but the finished product looks nice and they often email me with free things ie a free hard cover 8×8 photo book, 20pages, all I had to do was pay 6.99 to ship to Canada.
