    I have a large batch of digital photo's I want to print, and I am looking for a good online service to print them through.

    I want to be able to send the pictures over the web to the company concerned.

    I definitely want to have the option to not crop the images as I don't want to lose anything, but it would be nice (but not essential) to have the option to crop some.

    And obviously I want a high quality service for a good price.

    I've looked through other threads here and can only find mention of one service which is from Photobox.

    Any recommendations ?

    big recommendation for photobox (.co.uk) from me - excellent quality prints and their crop tool ensures everything turns out as expected. Fast turn around too.

    www.bonusprint.co.uk Seem cheaper for 5x7's than photobox. Have used them a dozen times & very impressed with results.:thumbsup:

    I've just placed an order with Photobox so we'll see.

    Nice website. Very user friendly apart from one thing. I went through all my pictures changing the cropping to my liking, then selected all and changed from Gloss prints to Matt prints (of the same size) and all my custom cropping was removed. :mad:

    As there were 150 pictures, and I had to do them all over again, I'll remember to do that up front next time.... :oops:

    Yeah Photobox are by far the best around.

    I use them exclusively for all my prints and have used them for everything from 6x5 to A2 prints and the quality is superb. That coupled with next day delivery makes them the best around in my book

    6x4 and 5x7 I'd go for photobox every time - if you want to do theoccasional big print i.e. 30x20 then fotango.com is also excellent quality and only £10. If you feel rich and want something a bit special photoartistry.co.uk will do proper stretched canvas prints..
