Hello guys!

I know I have had a similar thread earlier, but I would like to find out once more a good place to upload and get my pictures printed. I want the quality of the print THE BEST!

Hope to hear from you guys really soon. I think I have some nice pics to print out.

Are you using a digital camera for those pics, Dmitry?

Sorry forgot. I am using my Nikon F5 with Kodachrome 64 for film.

I'm not quite sure how the process goes when you're making prints from an actual negative online. Do you mail the negatives or what?

Dmitry- Given the fact that you'll have to scan your slide and then upload it to some print site... you'll no doubt have to upload to them a huge size TIF or BMP file (for best detail) and even with broad band that's going to take some time to do. I have cable modem and already I want something faster!

You can also send your actual slides to "The Slide Printer" in Colorado... I've had anything from 8X12 prints to large office size wall prints made by them and never a problem. They are very reputable.

No, I upload it all ready to print to there on-line server.

Thats the good part! I can fix up the photo in PS how I like and then get it printed!

Thanks Carlos!

How come I have to upload such a large file to a print site? Why can't I get a 8x10 or something like that uploaded?

Dmitry, there are tons of places online to get your photos "developed".

I would recommend http://www.photoaccess.com or http://www.ofoto.com. Both sites are well-known and are putting out high-quality prints.

As a digital camera user, I prefer photoaccess.com because they do special print sizes to accomodate the 4:3 aspect ratio put out by digital cams. However, that site makes regular size (35mm size) prints as well. They even have a slick little app that you download onto your computer to upload the photos - a nice feature! I will be uploading my photos from a recent vacation to photoaccess.com. Here are a few testimonials for that site: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1009&message=3231902

Ofoto.com is also a great site and a LOT of people use it, testimonials here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1009&message=1815423

Dmitry- Small 4x6s I guess should not be a problem if you send them JPG files.... but large 8x12s or bigger (from a 2nd generation slide scan) will no doubt need the large size TIF or BMP file if you want "the best" quality as you originally mentioned in this thread.
