    I work at a lab, so yes I do print my own photos.

    After working at a lab, and seeing the great quality prints I dont think id print at home ever again

    I've never really happy with the quality I get when I get the pictures printed. So thinking it might be better to do it myself. But it would probably be much more expensive!

    walgreens.com sounds gay, but it's great for proofs and snapshots. you can upload online and pickup in any store now too. I've found the color to be fairly consistent, and pretty close to my monitor calibration so it works.

    upload at 2AM when I'm done editing, pick up in the morning on the way to Starbucks. :)

    pretty cheap too.

    I work at an art school.

    So I have an Epson 1800 at my desk, and am networked to a lab of 4200's, a 9800 and a 10000.


    So yeah. I do all my own printing.

    if youre talking about digital cameras, never get my pics printed

    other wise I get a local pro lab to get prints of my film. but its expensive as shit here :wtc: even getting digital scans of my film is rediculous :wtc:

    but i will be in the market for a decent scanner shortly :x:
