Eat your heart out Shutterfly and Ofoto

Walmart PhotoCenter - Where it's easy to do more with your photos. I just picked up prints that I ordered from Walmart at my local store and I have to say, Shutterfly and Ofoto must be scared to death. Walmart not only gave me great looking prints from my digital shots, but the shipping was fast and free since I chose the option to pick-up the prints at my local Walmart store rather than it mailed to my door. Also, it ended up much cheaper than what Shutterfly or Ofoto charges! How can you beat 26 cents for one 4x6 print, with no minimum number of prints required? Add the convenience of pickup at your local store and I foresee that the other companies will have to follow suit with better pricing or fold. I know this sounds like a commercial, but I'm really that ecstatic about this photo development option. I photoshopped a few of digital photos (with added text and such) and still the prints came out great. Although Walmart says that the upper limit of the picture file is 2 megs, I uploaded files a little bit bigger than that and it still worked. The prints took less than a week from the time of upload to having the photos at hand. If you have a Walmart near you, I suggest checking this out.
