A few years ago I bought a Digital camera for Geocaching. Most of the photos go into cache pages or stored on my hard drive. Occasionally I print a few out a few on my printer.

On my recent trip to the Smoky Mountains, I used my digital camera for ALL my pictures. Now I have about 250 pictures I want to get developed.

I've heard of some these companies that will photograpically develope your prints from digital format. Some companies are on-line and you can email the jpegs, and they will ship you the prints. I checked into , but at $0.25 cents per photo, it seemed a little pricey.

Can anyone recommend a company that will develope these digital photos? It would be nice to find someone locally so I don't have to pay shipping fees.

I also like to hear any suggestions, pro or con, to developing these photos.

I've always used Shutterfly for my pictures. The prices get lower as you develop more at a time, plus they always have decent sales.

The one thing I quickly learned is that with having a digital camera, you have the advantage of not having to develop all of your pictures like you would with a film camera. Our camera holds about 90 pictures, but we'll never develop all 90. We just pick out the dozen or two best ones and send those in. That way we're not wasting money on developing pictures that looked good at the time, but on further review weren't really all that great.

We still keep all of our pictures, courtesy of iPhoto. We just don't print them all.

A local camera shop should be able to take the jpegs or whatever format as well. The Camera Company in Madison does I know for sure. I'm sure there is a camera/film shop that should do a 1-hour thing for you. You might want to let your fingers do the walking first though.

We have always used Photoworks from Seattle and have had very good results. We transfer the pictures to a CD to send in and they do everything and send back the disc and the pictures. I think they also have a web download that can be used but we haven't tried it. Always happy with the results and even use them for film. The price right now is 19 cents but they always have lots of coupons and specials.

When I want to *print* photofinisher quality prints (there is no developing involved since there is no film...) I use They're currently offering a 20% off coupon using the coupon code "PHOTOFUN". This expires July 24th.

Kodak has been putting keosk(sp) in Wal-Marts. You can look at the pictures and decide which ones you want or don't want. Once the selection is made they are printed right there in the store. Bring in your memory stick, I'm not sure about a CD.
