    Mr jones - recommended online retailers of digital to print are for me

    photobox and bonusprint - both are good for smaller sizes.

    If you want to see a large print epson are doing a one-off free print... http://www.epson.co.uk/4000sample/

    hi all last week took a couple of pics with panny fz3 and went into local boots were they have a machine, you insert memory card and print of the pics you require,

    was not overly impressed with the result ,colours etc seemed a bit lacluster , machine does not give option of matt or gloss prints 6X4 am i likly to get better results from say trueprint /bonusprint due to there processing gear over boots standalone machine, i did not change pics in any way with software.

    thank you
