Dawn, the vivid pics option is available when you are viewing and go into "effects" (see attachment) I hope that helps!

I LOOOVE Mpix. I think their metallic finish is very pretty, but for some reason, it doesn't print details as clearly in my opinion as their e-surface or B&W paper.

I like shutterfly, but their matte finish is too pebbly for my taste, as compared to winkflash or Mpix which is more of a fine grain matte. is CHEAP, .12 a 4x6 and .99 flat shipping, but their paper is as heavy as paper from shutterfly. The downfall is online editing options are not there and print previews are not as large.

You are very welcome

Another thing about Mpix, which can be a downfall is that you pay flat rate shipping PER finish of paper, which must have something to do with the way their labs are set up. You can order one image on regular paper and one one their true B&W paper and the shipping is 4.95 PER image. However, if paying for 500 prints, it's not a big deal
