When my old PC crashed a few years back because of hard disk failure, it took with it thousands of my digital memories - all the photographs which I had taken. The only ones that remain are those which I put up on my blogs and photo sites like Flickr, most of which I had edited. The original high resolution pictures are now lost forever.
Now I make sure that I also make 'hard copy' prints of the digital photographs I take every time. However, despite the fact that the cost of printing out photographs has really fallen over the years, the fact that we take hundred of digital pics at every event or trip can make printing the pics really costly.
Thankfully there are a number of sites which offer discounts on photo printings. I was really delighted when I found out about site that lists top UK digital photo labs where you can get free photo prints. When I last checked the Free Photo Printing site lists 16 companies where you only have to pay for postage and packing. According to the site the cheapest was £0.99 from Snapfish.
