Thanks again for the info.
I just called our local Walmart. They only accept film for the 1 hour process - no digital, cd or otherwise. Darn!
I'll have to check in the next, nearby town.

Thank you for that link!!
I found a store in my area, and called.
The person I spoke with seemed very knowledgeable, and I think I may be able to get what I'm looking for.
I can't wait to try them out!
Thanks again
Vikki

Matte

Hi

I prefer my photos to be Matte. I just like the look of them and the surface isn't marred as easily (finger prints etc.). However, these days most of my prints are glossy because it's easier when ordering on-line.

For digital retouching of vintage images it depends on the project/age of the original and preference of the client.

Has anyone looked at Consumer Reports this month? There is a comparison of on-line photo printers. They don't mention matte vs. glossy but it's interesting to see the print and quality comparisons.

Walmart online prints are glossy and from the store what they call matte. I dont consider bumpy-glossy to be matte myself but i guess they do. The people here dont even know what a tiff file is but they are pleasant and do know how to print an unprinter corrected photo and can use a zip or other disk for the one hour prints.

Thumbs down Sure!

Well I might be interested. I went to the website but couldn't find a price list and shipping cost estimate. Maybe I need to be logged in. Could you give us some of that info or point us to the right page?

Of course I'm sure everyone here would be interested in discounts! Those are always good incentives to give something new a try!

discounts

Hi everyone,

I am still working on getting a PDF file of the price list for you.

I talked with the boss lady and she says I can set up our members here with a 25%discount on stuff (the VIP discount excludes: process only on film, b&w contact sheets, b&w custom prints and prints larger than 12x18)

pdf coming soon as I catch the advertising chick

Matte v. gloss

I've had great luck with EZPrints.com. You can choose matte or glossy--same price and same processing time. Good luck!
