I hate developing pictures

They never turn out right :-(  Do you see the awesome picture at the top of my blog?  I love the shades and tint, it looks great.  That's how pictures look on my computer, even taken with my really old, 4mp Kodak.

But, I send away to get them developed and they come back awful.  Way too green or red, (which I learned is because they're printed on Fuji paper - Snapfish), cropped funny, (I didn't send them that way!!!), or, the latest is too bright.  I just got our picture for our Christmas card today from Kodak.  Averie's face is so washed out, I am so sad :-(

I had hoped Kodak would turn out better than Fuji, and maybe it did.  I guess I shouldn't complain, at least my reds aren't too bright.  Sigh.

Does anyone have a great onling photo processor to recomend I use?

  1. That top picture IS cute! :) Have you tried using WalMart.com? I usually have pretty good luck with their printing. You can typically edit how it will crop, too. Shutterfly.com seems to do pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of snapfish. I send mine off to a professional printer, but when I'm in a hurry I send them through Walmart.

  2. I like shutterfly.com much better than any other online site I've used. I've had bad results with walmart, walgreens and york - avoid using them.

  3. The best place I have found is my local cvs...the lady that is in charge of the photo dept. does an excellent job keeping the toner just right. I use york and snapfish and only once had a bad experience, but they reprinted them right away and refunded my money. Gotta like that!
