Kodak Online Photo Printing
- Nice interface
- Does not deliver, Pricier than the average
A poor choice, combining above average costs with a lack of options and no delivery.
Price$ 0.49 (AUD)
Kodak's online photo service is one of the more expensive options for digital printing. For the average consumer purchasing 4x6 inch prints, it will cost you $0.49 per copy if you make less than 30 and $0.39 per copy in a bigger batch. Compare that to the average of about $0.30, and the extra cost will add up over the course of a few years. Larger prints are also expensive, particularly those at the 5x9 inch measurement, which cost a whopping $3.00 each!
Unfortunately for Kodak (and us!), there range doesn't extend much past this. The biggest print they do is a mere 8x10 inches. Whilst these three options may be enough to satisfy many people, comparatively they came up lacking against the competition. They do however offer support for TIFF and FLASHPIX files, as well as the standard JPEG.
What Kodak's service does have going for it is an extremely streamlined interface. It requires a small software download, but there is no signup, and out of the other software based packages, it took us the least amount of clicks to get to our destination. You have several image cropping options when uploading the pictures, but nothing like BigW's full editing functions.
Postage costs $1.99 within Australia for a regular order (bulkier orders may differ), and you are given the option to send overseas for $9.99. It takes around 5 days to arrive, which is about average, however you can pay a small extra fee (either $2.50 or $3.50) to speed the process up, which was a nice touch.
It is a shame Kodak's prices are so high, because they produce some fine images. We felt they were comparable with Fujifilm's shots, which we absolutely loved. Colours were rich and deep, although not quite as bright as Fujifilm's they still looked great.
