Konica Minolta Online Photo Printing
- Cheap prints if you buy in bulk
- Limited options
For buying a large quantity of big prints, Konica Minolta may well wind up being your cheapest option.
Price$ 0.50 (AUD)
Konica Minolta's photo printing service operates with the same software as that of Mr Gadget. It falls firmly into the middle of the pack, offering average options with an average interface at a slightly higher than normal cost.
Pricing is well above average at lower numbers, with 4x6 prints costing a massive $0.50 each. As the numbers climb however the price drops, and once you order over 31 prints, it hits a nice, cheap $0.29 a print, which is comparable to the cheapest services out there. This applies to the larger sizes as well, and so if you find yourself ordering multiples of bigger prints, this should be one of your first stops as you can get 12x18 inch photographs for $7.80
Unfortunately, that is as big as the photos get. There are no alternative media options, although there are a few different borders available, both black and white.
Like the interface of Mr Gadget's service, the downloadable software you must use is serviceable, but nothing mind blowing. It is fairly easy to navigate and contains rudimentary image editing functions.
You have the option of either picking up your prints or having them mailed to you, however postage does cost a rather hefty $5.00. There are stores in a number of locations, however in general we thought they were a little out of the way. Posted items will typically take a week to arrive.
The image quality of this service fell somewhere in between AGFA and Kodak; prints looked good but not exceptional. We felt they turned out a little dull, lacking the same sort of life and richness of colour present in some of the competitors. They still look fine, and for most people they will be perfectly acceptable, but the difference is visible when they are lined up with the other prints.
