Well, I guess I had this coming. I have put off the task of uploading, downloading, editing, organizing, and printing pictures since…lets go with….the advent of the digital camera! It is sad. Sure, I have them on my computer, but it’s just not the same as having them placed with love inside a nice photo album. And for our one year anniversary, Matt told me that he was going to get our scrapbook started (he even bought glue-sticks…How cute is that?) So this weekend I finally forced myself to sit down and get my share of the pictures in order (I still have not printed any pictures from my bridal showers or the honeymoon!) I spent 4 hours on Saturday editing. Then I went to Wal-Mart, only to find that their price per picture was outrageous, and every photo kiosk was taken. I go to Walgreens and CVS and came to the same conclusion: Printing these photos is going to be a pain in my butt and my bank account! I spent two more hours Saturday night uploading pics to Walmart.com because I discovered that I could get $0.09 prints by choosing the online service, instead of going into the store. Convenient, right? WRONG! Apparently Wal-Mart.com was not ready for my 538-print order. The service kept freezing around photo #44. LAME! So, in a second attempt today, I spent another 3 hours regrouping the photos into uploads of 20 at a time. I got about half-way through before I realized that when you add shipping and handling, it would cost MORE than if you just waited in line at the store and printed the over-priced pictures yourself.
(EXPLETIVES AND CRYING!!!!!)
Thank God I have Matt! He quickly intervened and found a brand-new method to order low-priced prints online: Google! Of course! Google does everything short of making babies, why shouldn’t they have a photo service? Why didn’t I think of that? Anyways, we uploaded 600 photos Picasa and ordered from SnapFish for around $80. They should be here by Thursday. Finally! Anyway, I thought I’d share a few…There are 596 more where that came from ; )
