I feel like it;s kinda ex compare to the cheapest I found 0.35cents.
But online I can save the trouble of burning into CD and going down collect.

What do you guys think?

Well, that's probably part of where the other $0.15 went to. For me, I usually have either a large batch to print, or nothing. Sometimes, if the quantity is not a lot, I print myself. I think there should also be a difference in the $0.50 prints (whether online or not) and the $0.35 prints.

actually i don't really mind, considering the cost savings on film/slide. i can also pick and choose instead of developing everything as with colour negs.

one thing i do object to is the $5 service fee some places charge though.

They need 3:2 but my pic is 4:3!!
orh.... they did it the standard way. other shops will do the same too. I usually crop first before sending for prints.

anyway, it's the same case for film. at the different sizes (4R, 8R, etc), the negative is "cropped" differently.

Yeah that's the prob.. they took away my details. Take part of the picture away. Then no point developing. Why can;t they just print what I sent em huh? hah.

;p they printed using your image files but tries to fit the length sacrificing the details in the "width".

do note that the ratio for different sizes are very different. a 3:2 ratio image won't work for normal 8R pics (5:4).

We all are, but most of the time, cheap and good doesn't come together. :( Only the better labs which print the images themselves can print to your specifications. If they send them elsewhere, no guarantee. ;p

then they have been doing the wrong way.

Seriously, if u really want good prints, why settle for a cheap service that delivers less than expected results???

especially after spending all the money on digital cameras...
