Chapter 9. Printing Your Photos > Getting Prints at Retail

Getting Prints at Retail

Most photofinishing shops, and an increasing number of drugstores, discount stores, and other retailers with one-hour photo services, now offer printing of digital photos. Most stores accept photos from common types of memory cards, and virtually all accept photos on CD.

In some stores you give the CD or memory card to the clerk, who transfers the photos and returns the media to you; in other stores you use a kiosk with a built-in printer in a completely self-service operation. Such systems take more of your time, however, since you have to wait there while the prints are made. These kiosks generally use dye-sub printers, and their prints tend to be more expensive. In other stores, the same mini-lab that makes conventional photographic prints does the printing; these prints are typically less expensive than the completely self-service prints.
