      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of a good online company that can convert digital images to prints for the photo album?

Not online, but costco does prints from digital media for 19 cents a print. You use a kiosk in their stores to upload your photos.

Sounds like you might want to stay away from SFW, then. yellaf.gif

I've used shutterfly.com to print most of my photos. They also offer unlimited space for sharing online pictures with your friends. Of course, that with the intention of letting your friends print your pictures too.

 

ofoto.com is another, but it requires your friends to register to see your pics.

Try costco.com or shutterfly.com... average picture quality for regular expense. If you want a higher quality try your local photo speciality shop.

It depends on how large of a print you need and what sort of quality you expect.

 

Fuji has a nice digital printer called the Frontier that is starting to pop up in all sorts of places, from Walmart and Costco to reputable, dedicated photo labs. It can output quite sharp prints at 300dpi up to 10"x15", provided you have enough pixels, or at lower resolution if you don't. The prints are good, reliable and cheap enough, I'd suggest seaching out a place that uses it for smaller prints and prints from digital cameras. Hell, it's also probably your best bet for smaller prints from film too. Unless you specifically need an online service, I'm sure you can get them printed locally in just about any medium size US town. Look at Dry Creek Photo for a list of places using them. If you start messing with your photos in photoshop and want some basic color management check out the above link for color profiles (a kind fellow in Oregon has been making ICC profiles from Frontiers for free and posting them on the web..).

 

If you need larger prints from high res scans, I'd suggest West Coast Imaging or a local lab offering larger printing services. West Coast Imaging offers an economical printing service on their Lightjet if you provide the files. Good Luck.
