I have a new favorite thing. Well two, actually.
They are walmart.com and the Kodak Picture Maker at Walmart.
I've been uploading all my pictures to Walmart.com and picking them up locally.
I don't even have to pay for them until I get there.
Their one-hour processing is comparable to Wolf Camera. Same paper too.
I know this because I did test shots from each.
And they're only 19 cents for a 4x6, matte print.
But every once in a while, I like to have some smaller prints.
That's where the Picture Maker comes in.
I use it to get 2 different pics on one 4x6 picture.
So the pictures are 3x4.
I also sometimes get 2x3 pictures that are 4-up on a 4x6 print.
But tonight I experimented with a new option.
The pictures are *around* 1.25x2.
You get 9 different tiny pictures on one 4x6 print and it's only 28 cents!!!!
I love it!
Here's the way it looks..........
It does crop the image in quite a bit so you need to use pictures that have plenty of "head-room" or can stand some cropping (these were a test, they obviously were not all good candidates for cropping). Also, it's better to slice them with an exacto and PLASTIC ruler. The metal ruler jacked them up a bit. They are about the same quality as a great home-printer.
I am going to spend the next few days planning some layouts from events and holidays.
I take SO MANY pictures that I usually only get the very best printed.
So I'll have three to four 4x6 pictures on a page when really, I had about 20 good ones that I could use if I could fit them all on a page.
Well now I can!!
I'm also envisioning these in mini-albums and for things like taking pictures of all Caroline's toys and doing a page with them all in a collage.
The possibilities are endless!!!!!!!
My mind is whirling with ideas.
I am so excited about my new favorite thing!
