So I keep my clients photographs all ordered with folders within folders. I have to – it’s my business. However I struggle to keep my own family’s photographs organized. I always say my kids are growing up on Instagram because I rarely pick up my “real” cameras to photograph them. I pick up my phone and snap away – IS THE IPHONE 8 out yet?
I was looking for a way to print photos from any of my social media outlets. Instagram, chrome, the cloud…and guess what? I found one. Free prints. Yep. I said it. Free! Can it be true – they are free? Oh and if they are free will the be decent quality. I don’t want any prints from the labs from a big box store or drug store.
So my prints arrived today and I’m impressed! Super impressed.
Here’s how it works:
1. You download the app.
Free Prints App
2. Open the app and get started!
You will see a screen similar to mine. Scroll through the top and pick from the different areas you store your photos. This allows me to choose from my professional images in Dropbox and Drive while also my personal images from Instagram and Facebook. One stop shopping!
3. Only the 4×6 prints are free and remember Instagram photos are square. You can print those on a 4×6 and trim the white sides or pay the additional amount to get a different size. You can upgrade to any size
1. Fast and user friendly
2. 85 free photos a month – scrap booking here I come and I will finally get to change out frames
3. Good quality and color – I’m a photographer and see a myriad of images from different cost effective print labs. I stand by the quality of these images. Now when you get to larger sizes like 16×20 and 20×30 I would always suggest a professional print lab or similar like mpix.com.
1. Instagram photos print square so if you want square you will have to pay an up charge.
2. Glossy but there is an option to choose matte. Choose matte. I didn’t see this when I first ordered but always choose matte. Glossy images are from days of old.
There are more pros than cons as you will see.
You can’t loose by trying out this app. Maybe $1.99 in shipping – less than a cup of coffee.
