Online photo printing explained

Most digital photo printing services are easy to use. You just upload the photos you want printed to a website. Then you can choose your printing options – including the print size (from passport photos up to posters), the number of copies and any special finishes, like matt or gloss prints.

You place your order and pay online, and your printed photos arrive through the post, usually a few days later. Some services are linked to retail stores, so you can order online and collect your photos from a local branch – sometimes on the same day.

Digital photo printing services are convenient. You can print exactly the photos you want, without any waste. And because most services charge a small amount for each print, you only pay for what you use. It’s usually cheaper to get larger batches of photos printed, but can print as many or as few as you like.

Lots of ways to share

Many digital photo printing services give you some space online to store your photos and share them with other people. Sharing them is usually as simple as sending a link to your friends or family – and you can generally organize your photos into online albums and categories too.

You may also be able to apply special effects to your photos before they’re printed. Try removing red-eye, reducing blur or making them black and white. The tools can turn average pictures into good ones – and then you can have hard copies in just a few clicks.
