Photo Processing Sites

Michele asked where do I get my photos printed if I don’t have a printer. Most home printers do not print photos very well. I told her I go to Costco on Dodge Street. There is also Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Walgreens to name a few local venues. There are online services such as Shutterfly, Snapfish, and Walgreens. The following link is a website for a review of the top ten sites to have photos printed according to “Top Ten Reviews.com”, https://www.toptenreviews.com/best-digital-photo-printing-services . There are professional processing services such as Miller’s Professional Processing, Nations Photo Lab, and Printique are some to check out. These services will most doubt-ably be more expensive. This is an open invitation to our members to leave a comment or bring to the next meeting their favorite places to have their photos processed and printed.

Photos

Don’t forget to bring your “People Walking Dogs” photo to the November meeting. They will be hung at the Bellevue Library after November’s meeting. Start thinking about December’s photo also. The subject is “Snow”.
