Say Cheese!

I wonder how many other people are like us? You know...they use digital cameras exclusively. Take picture, after picture, after picture of their children. Have slide shows running on their computer screens. Carefully store hundreds, if not thousands, of photos on computer hard drives and CD ROMs. But don't have one, single, photo framed.

It's becoming a little embarrassing. I've been at work almost two weeks and daily people ask to see photos of Oliver. My family asks for photos. Ken's family asks for photos. Our friends ask for photos. Heck, I WANT PHOTOS!

My goal this weekend is to hit a photofinishing website and get some photos printed. The Superstore photo site allows you to upload photos to their site and pick up 4 x 6 prints at the Superstore of your choice for $0.25 per print. Future Shop has a similiar service but they charge $0.39 per print. Even Walmart has a site matching Superstore's prices.

So, all I need is the time to do it......tick, tock...

Imagestation has the prints for 21 cents right now :) Don't feel bad I just ordered almost 500 prints! That was from March- Dec 03. Whenever anyone wanted to see the kids pics I had to get out my laptop.

Have fun uploading all those pics :(

It's been a year and a half since I printed any photos from my digicam, so when I did a few days ago I had to do 500 at one time ( http://www.penmachine.com/#107829041746144273 )and that was out of several thousand candidates.

Also, if you have a lot to print, you'll probably find it much easier to burn a CD-R of JPEGs or to put them on a memory card and take them to the store yourself. Uploading them to a website can take a long, long, painful timeand some might not even give you enough storage to do it all in one go.

It's a bandwidth issuethe same reason they used to ship Usenet postings to Australia on magnetic tape instead of piping them over the then-low-bandwidth undersea wires. It was actually faster to ship them.

Yup, I;ve been digital for 4= years now. Everytime someone asks for to see photos, I have to lug out my digital photo album ( which is nice for the family album, but not so easy to share)

BTW: I never print out individual pictures, I create my album pages in PowerPoint and merely print them out as full sheets :)
