In this technique, you find out how to order Fuji Frontier prints online by using Shutterfly's online photo-finishing service. Shutterfly was selected as the service to use for this technique for three important reasons. First, the user-interface of the Shutterfly SmartUpload application is excellent — it allows you to get your work done quickly. Second, Shutterfly uses Fuji Frontier printers, which are some of the best high-volume printers on the market today. Finally, Shutterfly has an option that allows you to turn off all their intelligent processing features so that your prints may be printed as you intended to have them printed — rather than being further manipulated for color, contrast, and image sharpness.
Shutterfly's online service is excellent for getting one-hour-style prints made from your digital camera. Those that do event photography, such as sports photographers, can also use it. While I offer strong praise for the Shutterfly service and for Fuji Frontier printers, please be aware that this is a low-cost high-volume service. Do not expect to get the same results that you will get with premium photo-printing services, such as those offered by Calypso, Inc., which you will read about in the next technique.
Shutterfly uses state-of-the-art Fuji Frontier digital printers designed for professional photofinishers. These printers expose Fuji's Crystal Archive photographic paper by using red, green, and blue lasers to produce the sharpest prints available. The exposed photographic paper is chemically processed in the same way as in traditional photo labs.
At the time this book went to press, the cost for printing photos at Shutterfly was: $0.49 for a 4" x 6", $0.99 for a 5" x 7", and $3.99 for an 8" x 10". Besides offering online photo printing services, Shutterfly also offers a large assortment of photo objects and additional photography services including their innovative Snapbook. To learn more about Shutterfly and their offering, visit www. shutterfly.com.
Anyone with an Internet connection can use the Shutterfly online services; however, having a fast Internet connection, such as a DSL line or cable modem enables you to upload your images much faster than slower Internet services. If you have a slow connection, you may want to consider lowering the quality setting when saving your files as JPEG files.

Although we usually tend to think of the digital camera as the best thing since sliced bread, there are both pros and cons with its use. Nothing is available on the market that does not have both a good and a bad side, but the key is to weigh the good against the bad in order to come up with the best of both worlds.
