@BethAnnG:  I like mpix for quality prints and products.  Adoramapix has decent DIY albums using real photopaper.  Most of the other ones people will recommend use cardstock.

For individual prints to frame I used Ritz Camera.   I took the digital images on a flash drive and used the kiosk in the store.  They did a nice job.

I’ve used ritz for regular scrapbook photos, the online uploader etc was super easy and I was happy with the quality.

Another one for Mpix…..we did albums through Adoramapix and loved them, but didn’t get actual photos, so I don’t know if they are better or not, but the prints we got through Mpix were really, really nice. and cheap!

For fun photobooks, I use shutterfly.com.  They have millions of things you can customize on photos adding stickers and frames and background. 

For professional books, I am doing one via photobookamerica.com from a groupon deal a while ago.  I haven’t ordered it yet but I heard good reviews. 

Mypublisher.com is another one I heard people use and like it so far.

But I can imagine both sites will be expensive if not on sale.

I do know some photographers use costco to print their professional book, so maybe that’s another way to go too.

I have used My Publisher for coffee table books and had fantastic results. And they have great coupon deals (just keep an eye on the site- all the books I have ordered from them I have been able to get at least 50% off by waiting to order)

My brother uses Blurb.com every year to make coffee table books with pictures of his daughters. The books always look awesome.

Book: Adoramapix or My Publisher. I like the interface of both, and the print quality is equal. i like the pre-made layouts of Adoramapix more, but i don’t like that you have to work within their pre-established page number counts. MyPublisher lets you add pages in 2 page increments, so that you can get exactly what you want, which is really nice.

Prints: Adoramapix. Their metallic prints are such great quality.

After I got my digital copies, I did a sampling from 1) Pictage (my photographer’s affiliated site), 2) Mpix, 3) Adoramapix, and 4) Kodak Gallery. I had all pics printed on the Kodak Pro Luster paper.

I thought Mpix and Adoramapix did the best job as far as matching color to what I saw on my computer screen, with Adoramapix winning by a slight edge. I thought the Mpix pictures were slightly darker than what I expected (but still looked really good), where Adoramapix was pretty spot-on. 

Pictage did a decent job as well, but it wasn’t worth paying a million times more money for the prints when Mpix and Adoramapix actually did a slightly superior job. (Prices were jacked up bc my photographer made $$ off of them.)

The Kodak Gallery prints were just bad — colors were completely off. 

Of note, for my B&W pics, my photographer edited them such that they weren’t TRUE B&W, but had a very, very faint brown tint to them, which I loved. When I printed them through Mpix, they automatically put it on true black and white paper (which I didn’t ask for), meaning I lost the subtle tint changes on the prints. Adoramapix printed them exactly as ordered, and they came out perfect.

I ordered an album from mypublisher, which I’m going to be writing a review on when I get it (hopefully a couple days,) and I also had the same question about prints.

I ordered a 4×6 from mpix as well as walgreens, and they are IDENTICAL. (well, mpix is more of a matte finish ) but I did not in the slightest find a single difference with coloring or pixelation or sharpness or anything.
