Everyone loves taking photos these days. With digital cameras being so cheap and virtually every mobile phone having a camera built in, everyone seems to be snap happy. But that doesn’t always follow through to having more albums of photos to look through. Although the joys of digital photography is to be able to take millions of photographs, it seems we print a lot less. This does mean though we don’t get to sit through piles of photos of thumbs and double exposure shots as these never make the light of day with the delete button!print shops london
There are always lots of free print offers on from the major photo printing shops. They are keen to get you signed up and using their service so offer sometimes as many as 50 prints free, and with discounts on further prints. It is very quick and easy to get started too with you being able to register and start uploading photos in a matter of minutes. Always accept email newsletters from this sort of company as they are bound to tempt you with discounts on your next photo printing session!
You can of course print at home if you’ve got a good printer! They are very cheap these days and the ink is not as dear as you’d imagine. However you’ve got to make sure it’s replaced when you run out of colours and that you have photo paper in before you can print.
Sharing photos digitally is easier than ever and ideal for when you’re showing photos to people on the internet. You can upload pictures to places like Flicr which then allows you to share albums of photos with either the world, or just certain people. You can also add descriptions to the photos to make it easier to understand where the photo is or who’s in the picture.
You can avoid actually printing by sharing photos either by printing them onto CDs and sending the disc to someone. This is good for relatives who do not have a unlimited bandwidth connection where downloading many photos might up their monthly internet bill. It’s also nice as they can keep the CD and not have to worry about losing photos.
There are also photo printing machines at various places on the high street too. Boots the Chemist has one, as do some photo shops. These allow you to upload your photos from either a memory stick or a phone and print them out in store.If you’re only printing a few photographs then this is probably an easier and cheaper option than buying a printer.
