    If you are getting professionally printed 6" x 4" prints, will it make any
    difference if the digital images have a resolution of 1024 x 768 as opposed
    to 1600 x 1200 ?
    (Assuming no compression in each case)

    13 x 10cm (5.3 x 4inch)* 768x576 $0.60 cents
    15 x 10cm (6 x 4inch) 768x576 $0.60 cents

    20 x 15cm (8 x 6inch)* 1024x768 $8.50 (Special $1.99)
    25 x 20cm (10 x 8inch)* 1280x960 $10.50
    30 x 20cm (12 x 8inch) 1600x1200 $12.50
    Panoramic 30x10cm (12x4inch)2832x2128 $4.50
    No volume pricing
    Courier $2.50



    Frogprints
    6"x4.5" (Std Digital) $1.25 800 x 600
    6"x4" $1.25 800 x 600
    5"x3.75" (Sml Digital) $1.25 640 x 480
    8"x6" (Med Digital) $5.00 1024 x 768
    5"x7" $2.00 800 x 600
    10"x8" $10.00 1280 x 960
    10"x12" $14.00 1800 x 1350
    10"x15" $18.00 2000 x 1500
    8"x6" LUSTRE $6.00 1024 x 768
    8"x10" LUSTRE $12.00 1280 x 960
    8"x12" LUSTRE $16.00 1600 x 1200
    Better prices for volume. Price breaks at 5+ and 20+

    Courier $2.95


    So Digimax is best for standard print sizes, whereas Frogprints
    seem to have an edge for larger prints (esp in volume)
    The convience of being able to pick up your prints from your local
    Digitalmax shop also seems a nice option (saves on courier cost)

    As for quality and service......any experiences out there?
