I am very disappointed in Snapfish. This may be just new to me because it’s been awhile since I have been to their site, but I tried to print pictures then download pictures and was unable to. It seems that once it is on their site the picture is no longer mine to use as I would like, I now have to purchase the picture. Until now I have downloaded my camera directly to their site because not only could I catalog the pictures, but then use them to blog, print for art stuff from my printer or I could purchase the prints or make online photo albums to print.
I was until today VERY happy with the service. I have spent a fair amount of money on the site and sadly sent a lot of people to them to start their own online albums. I would like to officially remove my endorsement from the site.
I recognize the need for a company to make money. I also recognize that many businesses are in a bit of a slump right now and are looking at ways to increase revenue. I suppose that my next order will temporarily help the bottom line a bit seeing as I have several hundred photos that I will order on disc so that I can use my pictures again, however it will be my last order. I will have to send my pictures else ware to be printed and I suppose other sites have photo albums that I can get my seasonal pictures printed into.
I am sure that we will be seeing other businesses change policies in a similar way. I can confidently say my response will be the same.
