I might heart google...

I sometimes make my life hard for myself by deciding to do something at the last minute that would be totally cool, but now I have to figure out how to do it. So I decided at the last minute that it would be neat if I printed out a bunch of the pics of the girls from my digital camera and let them make their own collages or scrapbook pages tomorrow at our last meeting for the summer. Now for normal people, this might not be too hard, here's where it is hard for me. I don't own a printer. Well, I do, but I've never hooked it up. I only got it last month, an inheritence from V when he moved out of my building. It requires a USB AB cable. Now I know what a USB cable is. I have one for the MP3 player, but for some odd reason in my head what I need is different than what I own and I can't find what I think I need. So I head to google to do an image search get a picture of what I need... It is what I already own. Yay! I know I could've gone to like Bartell or one of those and had them printed there, but those pics are 29 cents for 1 4X6 yo. That's too much cash. So now I can do this at home tonight. Well, after I buy photo paper. :)

You don't necessarily need photo paper. My pics come out great on regular high quality paper and, if I am putting them in a frame with glass, I just print them on regular cheapo paper and you can never tell. If I use photo paper, they usually come out better for me on matte photo paper than on glossy photo paper.

I know you are in a time crunch and the printer or drugstore options makes sense, but I just wanted to tell you that you can also load them up to York Photo and they have 4x6 prints for 12 cents and they come out great.

I upload all my digital pics there and I share the albums with family and friends so they can order prints too if they want...anyhow, just thought you would want to know for future reference. Takes about 10 days to get them in the mail.

I still do photo albums, that is why I print my prints and I would spend a fortune doing it on a photo printer at home.
