around 30 cents per photo.

willing to go Clementi?

If you have done enough post processing, shopping centre photolabs will do fine unless you nitpick every pixel.

For ML, the management has changed. No longer the friendly uncle Kelvyn.
The new management charge me totally different rates from when i ask them and when they charge me. I'm NEVER heading back there again.

The shop has several lists clearly visible stating the prices per print for the respective formats. Very easy to track and calculate. But I'm not sure whether everybody working in this shop understands the meaning of "Please don't do any colour adjustments." Inconsistent results.

I guess i went there when they just handed the management over. No list was up to tell me the pricing and the young girl at the counter was a bit blur at that point of time. She blur blur tell me a figure and upon collection, another much higher figure was collected. Was rather upset with it, but wadever, i'm just nt heading back there.

With the price-list up now, guess there wont be this kind of prob.

I went to ML last week. I told them I'm from CS. They charge me the same price and print on spot. Perhaps in future tell them you're from CS.

Just collected some prints from no 1 colour centre at clementi central, photos turned out decent other than some blown highlights and cropping due to my own mistake on the aspect ratio. It's fine if you're not too particular.

Pretty affordable, 25 cents for 4R, 20 cents for above 100. Self service selection through the touch screen computer. 1 hour prints.

just hijacking a little, i have postprocessed and resized to 800 x 600, copied them into a disc and sent for printing. sadly, the photographs turned out so faded in clarity wise. why so?

any developer does a decent job replicating whats on my computer screen to 4r photos?

need to print about 200 or so :D

800X600 for 4R? I think that might be too pixelated.

If you want good quality, should be 300 dpi. So thats 1800X1200... :)

So conclusion is that even new management change, as long as you quote you are from CS will have discount?

Yea the kodak hut not bad, but usually i go over to Grace at sunset way.

Regarding 800 x 600, it is too low for printing even 4R usually i resize to at least 1600 x XXXX
