Kodak Gallery Offers Enhanced Photo Sharing & Book Creation
A survey of photo companies would not be complete without including Kodak Gallery, an online digital photo printing service that originated more than 100 years ago as Kodak. Today it is one of the most well-known brands in the world.
Following feedback from users, Kodak Gallery has completely revamped its website offering improved ease of use, faster uploading, enhanced photo sharing and photo book creation, and lots of new products. One feature I like a lot is the ability to download your photos in the same resolution that you uploaded them. This feature is usually only available on sites that charge membership fees. Kodak Gallery is free to join.
In addition to their Premium Prints with Kodak "Perfect Touch" processing that produces
fewer shadows and richer details and colors, new Professional Prints offer richer color on thicker, special papers and include individualized Professional Color Management. They are excellent for enlargements and framing and will appeal to amateur photographers wanting more professional looking printing.
The site offers great coupon code promotions; you enter the discount code at checkout.
The free photo editing software offers a great cropping tool that adjusts to 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 ratio so you don't make mistakes. You can review photos in a variety of digital picture frame styles. Kodak also features a collection of Martha Stewart designs for photo photo books, invitations, calendars and stickers.
The company offers new ways to organize your pictures, edit, write captions and share photos, as well as new products such as collages, stickers New Photo Sharing from your desktop, your online Gallery account or your iPhone. See below for a complete review of Kodak Gallery's photo services

I made some test prints and found that Kodak produces sharp, colorful prints with natural looking colors.
Free photo editing software includes red-eye reduction and excellent cropping tool. New price for 4x6 prints: 15 cents each. Kodak often runs promotions that offer discounts on prints and other services. Puts a "recommended" or "not recommended" logo beside your photos to let you know whether a particular image will print well at your selected size. They also let you split orders and ship to multiple addresses in the same order. A nice option.
