I've gotta shot a wedding in September for ...of course...a family member and they were wanting me to upload the photos to shutterfly.com. I know nothing about this place and some of the reviews I've read said it takes a long time to upload to. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I was doing some research and came across Mpix.com and they look like they do some quality printing. Any one know of them?

Any advice here would be helpful.

I use Mpix for singles and WHCC for Mutiples..price wise. Both's quality is great.

The option to get the nicer paper for prints looks so much better at Mpix and I've only read good things about them. Shutterfly looks like it is a mail order Walmart. Mpix also has a Mpix Pro which looks like you have the option of printing on more profession paper and you can get 8X10 prints to you initially so they can show you the quality. Do you know if when you share these Albums they can be password protected?

I have used mpix and they do excellent work. I'm not sure about your question about password protected albums, but I'm sure you can research the site. If they offer albums for sharing, I am almost certain it can be password protected, that seems to be typical of all places.

It sounds a lot better. I would think it is password protected since you share albums. They have a Facebook page as well as a forum so I'll probably ask on there. I just hate to see them order a bunch of prints from that other place and they turn to crap. I'm going to try to convince her to go with Mpix.

http://www.bayphoto.com/show-sell-photos-online/imagequix.htm  (NOTE, I'M IN CANADA HAVE NOT USED THIS U.S. SITE!!)  Bayphoto is pretty popular with pros.  This is their page about galleries.  Looks like they have a pay-as-you-go plan, so you don't have to get a gallery for a month or a year.

Or, you could make your relative buy you a Pro SmugMug account for a year and their pro account uses Bay Photo.  Then you would have the gallery for other things.  They have a cheaper option, but the printing is done at a cheaper lab.

OR if your relative pays for the $30 Smugmug account, you can upload everything into a password protected gallery and she can download the files she wants to carry off to her local lab.  

Millers lab is another that I've heard raves about, you'd have to check if they have galleries though.  (I've even discussed Millers with my pro lab in Canada and they seem to watch them for trends).
