A couple of months back my wife completed a photography course and following the course she purchased a Canon 450D digital camera.
Taking photos, getting the right light, getting that perfect shot, is all well and good, but looking at the results on a computer screen does not always do the photo justice.
The normal process to print the brilliant shot was to save it onto a flash drive, take that drive to the nearest (half decent) print lab and have them print the photo to the size needed; this process is all well and good if the photo lab gets the print right, the lab is open, the lab is currently able to print and you have the right amount of money. Photos are sometimes ridiculously expensive (especially for the A3 size)
So how do you avoid the above troubles?
