    Default Printing photos

    Ok, so I have been printing photos at home. I have decided that because I have so many layouts to get caught up on I need to print off a whole bunch at once. I know what websites to use in general, my question is do most of you ladies print off your photos in standard size or do you vary? I just see how you feature photos of different sizes. Do you do this by cropping? I think I have been limiting myself by printing them off at home because I can make them fit the print out and I have a tendency to make them smaller so that I may print more.

    I get mine printed at Costco, and sometimes I wait til they have a coupon - but they're only 15c each if you upload them online (for 4x6). You can order different sizes too. Not sure how the paper scrappers do the different sizes of pictures though.

    I use Snapfish and have always loved the print quality. Or if I want smaller sizes (2- 3x4) I run to Walmart and print them on the Kodak machine. Two of them print on a regular 4x6 photo sheet and only cost .28 cents. I don't care for their quality as much, but I do go there often for the smaller sized prints. Sometimes I will crop too though...it just depends.

    I normally don't crop the photos before printing. I never know what I plan on doing with the photos. I use either Shutterfly, Winkflash, or Wal-Mart to print my photos. I am really needing to print some off. I think I will do that tonight. Thanks for the reminder!

    I have been using ArtsCow to print. They are .6 for 4x6 size. Plus, you get a TON of free prints when you sign up. I have been getting mainly 4x6's and some 5x7's of my favorites that I want to scrap. I have been getting wallets at mpix.com because I like that they have rounded edges.

    Mine are always 4x6's at Target. Then crop after I have them.

    I also use snapfish. With my next order there are a few that I would like to get in different sizes but normally I just do 4x5 for everything and then cut them later.
    If I do happen to get them from WalMart I use the fujifilm machine and not the kodak, not crazy about the way the kodak ones hae turned out in the past.

    For pics I use in lo's I use snapfish and then have them developed at Walgreens. It's a little more expensive to do it that way but I do my lo's first and then crop my pics for the lo.

    Thanks ladies. You mentioned a few sites that I didn't know about so I think I will spread the love and take advantage of some freebies. I've been printing at home but because most places don't carry my ink cart anymore (printers about 4 years old), it's kind of a pain to replace and it can be expensive. Top it off with DH printing off all his stupid fantasy sports stuff and it's like a race as to who can get to the printer to use all the ink first.
