How to Select the Right Online Photo Printing Service
By Chris Norriss

Perhaps you are like millions of others and have recently purchased a digital camera of some kind or another. It is likely that you have now discovered the reason behind the popularity that this photographic technique enjoys - the ability to capture remarkably clear, sharp and excellent images. Unfortunately, you may have also discovered that most home printers are not equal to the task of printing the outstanding photographs contained in your camera's memory.

So, how do you get those pictures out of the camera and into a frame or photo album? There are several choices available, but one of the most popular and reliable are online photo printing services.

Generally, the consumer simply uploads the contents, or any selected images, from their camera's memory or memory card and selects the sizes, finishes and any other options available.

How do you know which is the best online photo printing service for your needs? Basically, the first factor to consider is quality, and quality begins with a demonstration of the value placed on each customer. To that end, the best online photo printing companies make free trial prints available to anyone interested in their services. For example, they should offer a few free prints in order for a potential customer to gauge the accuracy and quality of their work.

In addition to free trial prints, most of the better online photo printing services also work with a one hundred percent refundable policy, meaning that they will unquestionably refund any payments if the images and prints are not satisfactory to the client.

Of course, the beauty of the Internet is that it allows a wide-range of applications to be used by the millions of people who access it each day, and the best
online photo printing companies understand this and make alternate services available. For example, in addition to printing images for customers, they also make online "albums" available as well. Basically this service extends some memory to each registered customer who can then post any of their favorite images to their album, or albums depending upon the memory provided. Most will also allow customers to notify friends and family of their albums, and they can visit the site, look through the photographs and even order prints through the online photo printing service if they wish.

Finally, many of the online photo printing companies are well aware of the wide range of hobbies, crafts and gifts that people are now using their photographs to create, and offer services that support these interests. For example, a customer can order luxury prints of photographs on canvas which is "gallery" mounted, they can order mugs, t-shirts and even pillows with favorite images as well.

The best way to select an online photo printing service is to look for a wide range of services, easy to use software and ordering processes, high-quality images, low-cost shipping and a fast "turnaround" time on each order placed. It also doesn't hurt to inquire if an online photo printing service offers re-prints from old negatives as well.
