Chapter 9. Hardcopies Made Easy >  Using Professional Services

Using Professional Services

Serious photographers can be loathe to let their pictures out of their control. After all, making a print can be as important a part of the creative process as taking a photo. Even so, your best choice for getting the hard copies may be letting a professional service handle it. There are hundreds of eager picture services ready to create prints for you. They’ll output your images directly from your camera’s film card or allow you to upload them over the Internet for printing at a remote site.

The easiest way is to stop in at your local department store and look for one of those standalone kiosks, like the Kodak Picture Maker. I’ve used these when I was on the run, going directly from a photo opportunity to a nearby discount store, making a print, and dropping it off at a newspaper with handwritten cutline. Total elapsed time, 30 minutes, and at a cost of $5.99 for two 5 × 7 prints made from my camera’s memory card.
