    I printed some photos at the local Walgreens (in California). Quality was
    very poor. Colors were week and not very detailed. They are using some kind
    of mini-lab and probably were not maintaining it very well.

    We live in a small city in Idaho - about 60,000 - we have two Walgreen's -
    yes, they are pretty pervasive.
    I've only submitted online once - we've submitted in the store several
    times - puts your photos right in the 'one hour' queue. Seems adequate.
    They probably do, but I doubt they have ready access to that info or can
    tell you where to get it.

    I've used them occasionally. I'm sure that their printers do not have
    known profiles. I wouldn't use them for professional work, but for
    casual prints they're fine. They are very fast. By the time I go there,
    a ten minute walk, the prints are done.

  5. They are very large Nationwide [they have been in Minnesota, where I live, for
    at least 30 years .. probably MUCH longer].

    I have tested their service and it leaves a lot to be desired. They use cheap
    kodak paper, not the better stuff [no options either]. They offer Kodak
    Perfect Touch [maybe a good thing depending upon the source of the images
    ;-)]. The do NOT handle printer profiles and, to my knowledge, any color
    profile is simply ignored and treated as sRGB. They use Snapfish as their
    online interface, so read into that what you like.

    Do these services bleed to the edge?

    Yes, I know people that do professional printing on their own.
    They've invested a little too much money (not much more) than I care
    to by my current priorities, and things are always facter/cheaper/better
    next month, anyway.
