Re: Printing??????

Ian Rawcoll has pretty much pre-empted what I was going to say. I think his last sentence:

Quote:
Also, I think it is very difficult to judge exactly how a file will be printed up by a third party, and the ability to run off test prints and tweak the file is, to my mind, essential.
sums up my reasons for having an expensive-to-buy-and-run temperamental printer. For bog-standard holiday snaps or a set from the rugby, I just use a high street lab. We are lucky to have a good one in Salisbury Photo Centre - http://www.salisburyphotocentre.co.uk/ . They also do high quality work but unless it is for something really specialised like a canvas or a huge print, I prefer to do it hands-on and keep control myself.

Ciao ... John
