Seems that most everyone has taken a photograph that you'd love to get out from your snazzy new camera/phone. (My just born granddaughter's first photos were taken with her proud daddy's Palm Pre!) Great to upload to  the web or Facebook, but can you print them? Yes, you can & here's how... If the photo has a emailable file name, send your file to our online photo site, The biggest size we suggest you print a camera phone photo is 4x6, since the size of the file is very small compared to what a regular digital camera can produce. If you have a number of photos, and wish to attach them with instructions,  please email them to our lab man,  with your specific requests. He''ll get back to you by email or phone with a prompt & cheery reply. If you want to take decent cameraphone pictures, ba_hollaback06_014_2here's a few tips: -Adjust your camera phone's quality level to "superfine." This will produce the largest possible images with less compression and will help avoid jagged lines. - Many camera phones have lousy light meters that cause overexposed daylight shots. If you reduce the brightness or exposure setting, you should get better results. The flash function tends to be very weak on camera phones. So for night shots, use your camera's "night mode" if it has one. This uses a long exposure which means you have to hold the camera steady, but you should get better results with this than with the flash. - If you are in the market for a camera phone, look for one with a removable media card so you can upload and email from your PC. If you have a camera without a removable memory card, use your phone service's photo album feature to post photos. -A good rule of thumb with any type of photography is to get in as close to your subject as possible. This holds true even more so for cameraphones, which produce lower-quality pictures than full-on digicams. Especially for portraits, just remember - the closer you are, the more personal and detailed your shot will be. And finally... -The steadier you hold your cameraphone, the less likely you are to get blurry, streaky photos (especially at night). Of course, blurry and streaky might be an effect you're looking for - do experiment! But a steady cameraphone will increase your chances of a sharper photo. Be sure to hold the phone still a few seconds after you hit the shutter to account for any delay, too.
