  • Wal-Mart photo printing

    This may seem dumb, but I'm going to ask anyway...

    For my work I am printing some event photos at Wal-Mart (since they are the cheapest). I have edited the photos, and added a bar with the name of the event at the bottom, and the date. When I called the photo department and asked what format they prefer, I was told JPG. When I asked whether they should be RGB or CMYK, the manager on duty acted like I was speaking Swahili.

    Does anyone know the answer to this? I'm assuming RGB, since digital cameras usually produce RGB files. But then again it's for print and I've never done this before.

    Help, please...

    RGB. They won't be seperating anything or calibrating.

        Yeah, after I posted, I thought it through and realized photos are developed using light on light sensative paper. Not ink on paper. Thanks for the reinforcement, guys.

            of course, my computer was clicking and clacking away at the time,
            so i can't really blame her.

              I thought Wally world and those type places just used a high qual printer for their prints. Do they really use photo development processes? How do you get a negative from a jpg file, do they have an imagesetter?

                  Actually - No, they don't. They use a Dye-sublimation process - which is CMYK. But don't confuse them by giving them a TIFF. It's Walmart man.

                    Death to Wal-Mart!

                    But yeah. What they said.
                    Creativity is taking what is and bringing in what isn't.

                      With Comcast it isn't so much the internet that's crappy. It's their email service.
