Quoting L&B +1:" I'm getting my first DSLR next week and am hoping to get some pictures of the kids to print and hand ... [snip!] ... printed? If I cant get them to look like the prints we'd get at say, Walmart studio, then Id rather have a professional do it!"
Quoting Mom of 2 Monkeys:" If you take a good picture that looks professional on the computer, dont ruin it by going to walmart... ... [snip!] ... where my photography friend prints hers... but walmart cuts the quality about as bad as facebook does when you upload them x_x"
Quoting Mrs.Dani:" I just want to say, that just because you have a "nice" camera won't mean the pictures will come out looking professional. It takes a lot more than a nice camera to get nice photos."
Quoting L&B +1:" Lol. I meant the quality of the print. Right now Im only shooting with a sony cybershot and while its ... [snip!] ... have to go with a photographer. Im pretty sure she printed it at Walmart though too, which I was told destroys the quality."
Quoting babybaker:" My cousin is a professional photographer and recommends printing the image files I purchase from her ... [snip!] ... just telling you one option to get professional print quality, if the picture looks professional is all up to you of course "
Quoting Mrs.Dani:" Walmart prints are really bad. They made all my pics come out dark and messed them up."
Quoting Mom of 2 Monkeys:" ok yeah, reconfirmed with a photog friend... mpix.com she said is the best place to print good quality pictures."
