    I don't think I've ever posted in here but a casual admirer of the SLR brigade and owner of a poultry 2MP compact.

    Just used Photobox after reading on here about them and subsequently finding a 30 free print link on Paypal. Combined with 250 prints at 5p each I just got 282 prints for just over £14 delivered and every single one is cracking even with only a 2MP camera (albeit a pretty good one).

    Just thought I'd share my experience. ;)

    Yup, they are pretty good. :)

    They often come out dark tho. I think its something to do with using a TFT (which is backlit) for editing the pictures before sending them off.

    I found the calibration print to help a lot.

    I've been using photobox for a couple of years now, I put all my wedding and honeymoon photo's through them, the results were much better than the run of the mill high street processors and they didnt do the annoying re-sizing to 35mm format (7x5 rather than 6x4?) either :)
