Re: Developing digital photos?

Hi Pekka - A friend of mine recommended Foto.com to me just the other day.

Alas (as far as I can see) you have a choice of only French or German on the site but it shows what you can get.

I haven't used them yet but did see that they produced a unique photo-album book for my friends.

Hope it helps.

Re: Developing digital photos?

just wanted to add I use snapfish. It's HP's online printing service. They do have a swiss based website...

I used it in Australia recently and according to the recipient of the book, the quality was very good...not that cheap though, but a good gift (we did a book of the grandparents trip with their grandkids ...took hours and hours to put together!

Given that the aussie price seems quite a bit cheaper than the swiss price, I think I'll just keep making them and sending them to the grandparents from there...

Re: Developing digital photos?

I didn't see Coop mentioned on any of the previous posts so I will add them.

If you just need a couple of copies, they normally have a machine in the larger stores. Easiest is to bring you photos you want printed on a USB key.

For larger quantities, you should look at their website (details below).

They also have a half price special on until the 20th of Sept.

From memory, if you have the photos delivered to your local Coop, you do not pay the shipping fee. You would then pick them up at the courtesy counter when you go to the store.

Unfortunately the page is only available in French or German.

How do you print your photos?

Hello

Need some pointers on how to get photos (and photo products such as calendars, photo books, posters) printed.

I used the Apple store (and making photo album directly from my Mac) in recent past. the prices are pretty attractive, but when you add postage and VAT then it gets more expensive.

One thing that i do not like about the online stores is that one needs to export photos first and then upload to web etc etc. So it is not very time efficient. Wish that Apple guys were not charging VAT (7.6%)

thanks

Re: How do you print your photos?

I did a test with a number of online printers last year (had the same photos printed by a number of companies) and in my opinion www.ifolor.ch turned out to be the best quality at this level (they were better than those from Mac too!).

Re: How do you print your photos?

Thanks for the link! It looks good - will try. Is anyone aware of some photo-printing promotions - like you can print some initial amount nearly free?

Also, I ordered several free promotional printed products, including business cards and photo calendars from http://www.vistaprint.co.uk/ - only paid for postage, and no Swiss VAT applied since the product didn't really have a price tag

Re: How do you print your photos?

Since Apple upgraded their printing lat year this works for me, the hard back books are great quality and a good alternative present.

Do it yourself on your own printer. For 100 bucks you can buy a decent HP printer. Buy HP premium plus photo paper. Layout your photos via cut and paste in Powerpoint. Set the print settings accordingly (Highest quality, HP premium plus photo paper, in advanced setting set DPI to 2400 DPI). You can print high quality photos this way that will last years. No need to have anyone else do it for you. That is all.

Costly and time consuming!

Plus, Microschrott Powerpoint is NOT a graphic software application for
photos.

If you want to do the job right, use the right tools! Check out this awesome
list
of software for photo editing and printing.

Re: How do you print your photos?

Hopefully not upsetting Scott again.

Aldi Online print service is probably the cheapest around. They include software on their website, making it very simple. They have a range of products from photos to albums, calendars and large poster prints etc. Prints start at CHF 0.13 for 9 x 13 cm.

Nope

Just trying to keep people from making a mistake using the MS tools
for uses they were not made for.

We use www.fastlab.ch for printing out pics. They come out well and they are very quick with sending.

I send all my pictures via the internet to Migros to be processed. The plus with them is if you opt to pick up the finished photo products at the Migros of your choice there is no delivery charges.

Re: How do you print your photos?

thanks all for the info.

The PLUS point doing it from the iPhoto is that it is so easy; wish one was able to export the designed calendars from iPhoto to one of these online providers.

Btw with Apple one has much more choice with calendar styles etc; and also for softcover books the price (including postage + VAT) is same is what iflor costs (I am not ure about the number of pages in the book though).

Re: How do you print your photos?

just tried with Migros, seems online system does not have much choice for posters and books; and the offline software only works on windows , so no luck for Mac

But the prices for calendars and posters are very attractive and less then iflor

I installed it on my Mac from a CD I picked up at Migros and I do remember installing it once from online for a Mac but I can't seem to find it at the moment..

Re: How do you print your photos?

I use the Apple online service myself, even with my professional orders for clients. There was a time when the Apple service was not working very well, the quality was poor, the service shipped from the Netherlands and it took forever for products to arrive. However, they seem to have resolved those issues and it is a real pleasure to use. Mostly, I am using the book printing service through Aperture (we have our own printers for prints), but we have also produced cards and calendars in iPhoto. Customers love the products and the choices of design templates, which can easily be customized in Aperture. If you have any questions about the services, let me know.
