Online photo labs aren't created equal. We test the best, from Shutterfly to
Snapfish, Adorama to Wal-Mart, and find some surprising results.
You'll fall in love with the photobooks. Choose from a wide assortment of styles and configurations, and 74 different page layouts. Prices start at $12.95 for a 20-page book. After creating your first, you'll never be content with a conventional flip album again. Its other specialty items are clever, too, especially the Christmas tree ornaments. Get 25 free 4x6s when you sign up; after that, pay 19¢ for each.
HOT: Great photobooks in nice variety of formats; neat panoramic folding poster cards; very elegant web page designs.
NOT: Visible streaks on poster.
If you live near a Ritz camera center -- and who doesn't? -- you can pick up your prints (within an hour of uploading!) and save shipping charges. Even if you don't, you'll find visiting ritzPIX a fun and easy way to order images. It also offers the most unusual specialty print item we've ever encountered: PhotoStamps -- your images on real U.S. postage stamps. Storage, while not free, is very inexpensive (as low as $1.99 a year).
HOT: Pick up prints at any Ritz Camera Center; cool (and mailable) U.S. postage stamp prints; excellent 4x6 prints.
NOT: Disappointing poster print; homepage is extremely cluttered.
