I use Photobox. It is very convenient because you can upload your photos online.

I use Loxley Colour (0141 333 9444)
Again, upload on line, very helpful and I've always had great results.

Staff that know what they're doing. Staff that care about customer satisfaction. Decent equipment.

I'll add to what Justin says and say that as well as staff who know what they're doing, it's knowing that the machines are clean (as well as working properly). Using a high street shop you end up with incredibly dirty scans of negatives (when I used to use film) and vague adjustment of the colour profiles. In short, it's the difference between a dried up cheese sarnie (high street standard) and a five star meal at your favourite chef's restaurant.

Bit pricey, I thought.

However, you pays your money and takes your choice, as it were. Smile
