    I was looking at deviantart, but they want like 50-60 for a medium size print. I was wondering if I could just get the picture and have someone else make a print. Anyone know where you can get them made?

    Mpix [edit] or WHCC for quality, PEphoto if you want cheap.

    if the people in your local costco aren't total idiots, you can usually get decent enough prints out of them, just make sure you talk to them and they don't do any auto colour BS etc. i've used them for proofing etc and they were fine. I wouldn't use them for like, fine art prints or something but that's a whole different ballgame.

    yep, had an 8x10 and 11x14 printed there as well and both came out great. I didn't have a file worth printing a 20x30 with to see the quality but that is on my list of to-do's
