These days I use Truprint. Having downloaded the relevant, free, software I can upload the jpg files, edit them and send them off to the great photo-processing plant in the sky and the prints arrive in the post a few days later.
The price-per-print falls dramatically as the size of the order increases, so I usually wait until I have a hundred or so waiting to go. The hundred prints then sit around at home for several months until I get around to sticking them in the album, by which time I have to consult the log book to work out when and where I took them! It's all incredibly archaic but it does mean I have a complete single-format record - and one that is rather more future-proof than digital formats provided that I don't lose the prints and that I can continue to buy the photo-corners to stick them in with, which are becoming increasingly difficult to find in shops.
I've just spent one of those "non-days" between Christmas and New Year, when everyone's lost track of the day or the date, bringing my album up-to-date and covering the period from June to November (later ones are still in the camera). Here are some of the highlights of 2011.
|I'm not likely to forget last winter in a hurry!|
|Spring saw us entertaining Starcross' previous owners: Mark and Mandy (right) with daughter, Mika, who's come along since.|
|Summer brought the Braunston Working Boat Gathering|
Chertsey is in there somewhere.
One of the highlights of the latter part of the year was this display of Autumn colours in Grub Street cutting.
So, does anyone else still get prints, or am I alone?
