Hey Team,

 

 

 

Just tried to use both the Harvey Norman, and Warehouse Stationery photo printing apps (iOS) and was put off by a section in their ToU that pretty much granted them rights to use your photos (I think the HN one said it a third party could receive a copy of your images).

 

 

 

Anyone have any recommendations for a print service?  It doesn't need to be app based, but I am looking at getting a few hundred printed and my experiences with the kiosks has been pretty poor.

I've always used Snapfish.

 

I haven't read their Ts&Cs though.

I’ve used snap fish. But after the last couple of times might start avoiding them. Found the print quality a little lacking. Just not sharp and a bit dark.

I've used the kiosks at HN in Tory St quite a few times and have always been reasonably happy with the print quality.  Unsure about the T&C's and their right to use my images, I've typically not read them in a lot of detail.

 

As per above, used Snapfish for last lot of holiday prints (based on price) and was disappointed with lack of sharpness and colour.  (The two times I've used them to make a photobook they have been excellent though, and their creation gui is good and easy to use.)





The first 5 days after the weekend are the hardest.

I'm pretty sure you are granting them rights to use your photos to provide you the service, not to use as they see fit.

I've found both books and prints to be disappointing on sharpness and colour and darkness.  I do like their app though (IOS) for making a book.

This was my first thought too.  What was the wording? It sounds like they're just covering their asses because the kiosk probably uploads the photos to the cloud and\or uses a 3rd party to provide the service; I would be surprised if you're signing away copyright on the images though...?

Pretty sure it says something like <Insert Company name here> claims no ownership rights to your photos.

Wording for Printicular (Warehouse Stationery) is here. The part I didn’t like is where they say “When you contribute content, we may make it publicly available”



For HN: it’s the part about giving licence to do a whole bunch of stuff “including but not limited to fulfilling your orders”

Printicular is a separate app that just uses Warehouse Stationery to print for them, for the Harvey Normans one, again it just looks like you are giving them permission to do standard stuff to print your photos.

Are some of those terms there because the kiosk has the functionality to share directly via email, etc etc?

I'm going to put out another option for you.

 

How many prints do you do? I've got an Epson ET-4700 which has excellent photo print quality and is a general all around great printer. The ink is very cheap and photo paper isn't badly priced either. I've done a number of prints with this with excellent results (to be honest - better than our local print shop) and CPM is even a touch cheaper given the cheap cost of the Ecotank ink.

 

If you do it at home - only you own the prints however there is the initial investment with the printer.

Once upon a time, Snapfish were.. better than it appears to be now.

 

And if you went to HN. SC or other such joint with onsite commercial photo processing gear (and I mean negative devlopment here) despite similar to online pricing, if you chose 2 day service you usually got a good result even from digital after waiting in the processing queue.

 

Along came HP to buy out snapfish. And seem to immediately start to replace all the normal print labs for much smaller and less maintenance required mid-tier not quite commercial bubble/inkjet photo printers with long length rolls and fuzzy logic to 'enhance' low resolution images (heck. Sometimes my exported DSLR JPGs were too big for it to process!)

 

I've not bothered printing real ones since the change. Wedding photos, Car racing and all could have been taken on a cellphone and got similar print results vs the time/cost invested in good gear.

 

There are still full metalic processing agents out there. But you won't get them for 70c each like mass printed paper roll types..

Correct based on the snippets provided. They are asking for a licence for the purpose of providing the services.
