Of course we all know what old school photo printing is. We used to take our camera, insert a roll of film, and then when it’s all used up, take it to a photo shop at a local mall or store and then wait anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for the pictures to develop.
When digital photos came into the picture, instead of film, we had our pictures stored in a disk or memory card, and then went to the photo shop to have them developed, although now we could choose only the pictures we wanted and delete the bad ones, as well as having the option to just buy a printer and print the photos at home.
Online digital photo printing is the next step in photo printing, where we can avail of a photo shop’s service right from the comfort of our home or office cubicles (just make sure you’re on break when you’re in the office).
An online digital photo printing service is sort of like a real photo shop, it’s just that it’s on the internet. Also you will have to wait a few days before the photos can be sent to you, but it does save you the effort of driving or walking or taking a ride to the nearest mall just so you can print your pictures.
Online digital photo printing services also offer other services that are not possible with a real life photo shop. Many offer the option for you to store your photos online and give you a set amount of storage space you can devote to that. Many also offer a photo album option attached to this online storage service, where you can showcase your pictures and organize albums and make captions and the like for everyone to see. Thus, you do not only have hard copies of your photos, but have a collection of them online as well.
Online digital photo printing services are a big help to people who have no idea how to collect and organize their photos and show them to their friends. Through an online digital photo printing service, other people will also automatically have access to these photos and be able to request themselves for a particular photograph that they like.
Even photography enthusiasts use this service for them to be able to exchange their works with each other, and be able to order large-scale prints (which depend on the service, by the way, as not all have this option) from their offices or homes.
The online digital photo printing service is a perfect marriage of the new technology that allows us to be able to see, store, and organize our pictures online, and send slide shows and photos to our friends and loved ones, while not losing the inexplicable attachment we have to pictures we can actually hold in our hands and hand out to everyone and mount frames on our walls and desks at home and at the office.
