I'm not sure how to start this thread but when I upload photos to either Costco or Walmart the color of the photos are a little more saturated or darker than the original photo.

Example: I sent this photo in for printing and the blue sky was extremely saturated and the tail fins were all black instead of the gray camo on the plane. What can I do to correct this. The photo looks the same on three different computer LCDs......

I'd say stick with quality labs like MPIX or WHCC. Costco for proofs are o.k. Wal-Mart, I just cant see wasting my money there on such a great image, IMHO.

I actually wouldn't trust taking photos to Costco or Walmart. If you calibrate your monitor than the shots you see are what will be close to print. There are some really good online print companies that do a good job. I would recommend http://www.myphotopipe​.com (external link). They have good customer service and I haven't been disappointed with them yet. Hope this helps

And, don't forget that Costco has a printer profile that should be used?

My Costco does an excellent job - all the time. I do use their profile and according to the instructions it's a conversion process. I do know there are Costco stores that I wouldn't trust with even proofs.

More to the point - install the appropriate profile from Costco and soft proof your images to see what will happen. Note also that Costco has profiles for lustre and glossy and they are by store.

...and they are by store.

And, they can change as they are updated once a year.

Sam's Club is great. I get 16x20 prints there all the time (they just changed to a heavier photo paper, and it's really nice) for only $7 each.
