    Who do you use and recommend for online printing?

    Pretty much the same as the topic asks. I would like to email a company the image and receive the print back. I've never used an online printer before and am looking at around an A2 print size.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link Rick, just looking at the site now.

    It looks exactly like what I'm looking for. Send off my file and receive back my print.

    I'm amazed at how cheap some of the prices are - for example A4 !

    Thanks

    Cheers for that place, looks great!

    I have just started looking at this site. It is frightening from a security point of view when you read the messages that come with the installation, including its attempt to launch the Java update directly.

    I have stopped the process.

    I rarely print, but on the few occasions on which I've needed prints, I've gone with http://www.photoenlargements.com.au.

    My Mac's monitor is not calibrated, but when I get the prints, they look like what I see on my screen.

    When I print on my own printer (even rarer), they look nothing like what I see on my screen.

    I use both RGB Digital in Bris, their application is perfectly safe, and PixelPerfect Pro Lab in Sydney.

    I haven't used any online service as yet, but what about one of our sponsors film street?

    I don't think there's to much risk in using it (at least Ihope not!) I'll have to ring RGB tomorrow when they're open because I'm havingsome problem actually placing my order.

    Unfortunately Thomas at flimstreet cannot do up to A2 size (as per the OP's post) at this time. But certainly for smaller sizes I would also highly recommend filmstreet. Thomas largest at this time is 10x15 inch

    I've not really had much fun with online printing services (but so far I've only used two, Harvey Norman and someone else who I forgot). Find that the moment you want more than a 6x4 the price goes up exponentially (and had some misses with print quality - due to my own mistakes!) but will certainly give rgb digital a try.

    Don't know if anyone is still interested, but I use Digitalworks.net.au. They are awesome for service and great colour and odd sizes. Used them several times over the years for everything from mounted prints to postcards with both my photos and digital art.

    They changed owners a while back and the quality dropped off. I have not used them recently, so it may have been improved, but they certainly lost quite a few loyal customers. Funny how business ownership changes often see that happen.

    I've used DigitalWorks in the past too with good results, I'm not sure if I have used them since they have changed owners, although I wasn't aware that they had changed owners.

    Excellent results from filmstreet - and great prices too - not the exponential cost increase on size increase
    Epicaricacy
    Canon 5Dmkiii and a variety of lenses and other bits and pieces

    Awesome, A hell of a lot of pro togs use their services, they can do some pretty cool finishes, rather than just the standard prints. (It's on their link)

    I know one of the Tech's, he has several wedding togs that leave it up to him to PP their work. Personally I believe this is wrong, but shows the trust (Somewhat) put into the place.

    You can use iCloud to post images/files - easy as.
    They call me "Blue" it's a red head thing.
