Update on my photo situation :)

Well the manager gave me my money back on the pictures that looked bad... that I wasn't satisfied with. Now, all I am trying to figure out is how the heck do I change them in photoshop so that they print out the way I see them on my screen. And so far I've learned that there is always going to be some cropping no matter what. Oh well..I'm sure i'll figure it out eventually and I'll try again and print pics there. This whole printing pictures thing is so confusing though! I wish we had enough ink in our printer and I'd just print them out here but our printer is crap right now. lol Just thought I'd update ya'll on the photo thing. I'm glad she was nice to give me some of my money back. She said she didn't normally do that but she felt sorry for me. lol I know some of you are from the photography board too so sorry if its xp. Smile

It is nice that she did that. I wish we could be more helpful, but it seems like you are in a whole different world over in Norway. Picture printing is a lot different there from what you've said so far.

Did you end up ordering scrapbook pages yet?

no not yet Smile i ordered some samples from one of the websites you guys gave me.. (i forgot the name of the website...gotta look it up again lol ) but my mom is sending them to me and i'm just going to scrapbook like crazy between now and august, or try to anyways and then print out a bunch of scrapbook pages and have them sent over to my moms in August/September when i'll be visiting Smile so ill just end up bringing them back with me.

and yeah picture printing is slightly different..they use cm's here not inches so that confuses me big time but i'm getting use to it Smile

Oh and I told the manager lady that 700 kr. (130 dollars?) for only 18 scrapbook pages was way too expensive for me and that for that price I can get 3 times as many photos in the states. She was like "really?" she didn't think 700 was that expensive. Figures. lol Alot of people around here think grocery shopping is cheap. Not me..or DH and he has lived here his whole life! Lol On average for one full grocery bag (milk, butter, eggs, cereal, etc.) basic stuff always costs me 60 dollars everytime i go to the store. Never fails. I try to buy cheap but its so hard here Smile anyways sorry for rambling.... carry on

I'm so glad you got some money back!

sounds like things are expensive over there and the natives are just used to it. Wink

as far as the print quality, you want to make sure your DPI is set to 300 - 150 is okay, but I found that I get better results with it set to 300.

I am glad to hear she is refunding your money. I would be upset too. I hope that you can find a way to get the pics printed right. :confused:
