(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

One of the presents grandma got this year was some photos that I've taken over the past year or so, of Kirstin, myself and the dogs and such. But the problem was that they were all digital, and I didn't just want to print them out on some bublejet printer. So what I did was opened them up in Photoshop Elements, cropped, resized and saved them as 4"x6"/260 dpi uncompressed tiff images. Next I stuck them on a compact flash card and headed on over to Walgreens. They have a couple of computers set up with a touch screen, and drives for all the various types of media cards. I stuck my cf card in, picked the pictures I wanted and came back the next day to pick them up.

They turned out freaking awesome. I was definitely not expecting the pictures to come out as nice as they did. And at only 29 cents a picture, I'll certainly be visiting again.
