I cant seem to find an area on the online ordering form to uncheck the color correcting.
I'm sick of this crap. I just ordered 50 xmas cards and all the pictures have a slight green tint to them. They come out perfect on my Pixma 9000.
A friend of mine sent his to snapfish and took his pictures with a pop-up flash and they look better than mine.

Is it worth the arguement for 15 bux?

I have given them back more than that, they really don't care.

The box you are looking for is on the last page, before you click "place order". It is near the top of the page, open "edit option"

Are you using a color corrected monitor?

Have you used this printer (costco) before?

Maybe your images do have a green tint?

I've had great results from Costco, in fact I have only had one problem with them, and they reprinted with out any problems.

I do make sure to uncheck the color correction box though.

The strange thing is that if you place the order in-store, the kiosks do not have the option to remove color correction. You have to tell the lab tech.

Nope.
Nope.
Maybe?

I look it like this... I dont have color calibration on my monitor (its on my to do list). Between work and home I have 4 different computers to look at my images on. All of them are very close in color. My printer almost matches my displays. I wouldnt expect that the image would carry that green tint.

For the most part I do my own printing but with holiday cards, 15 bux for 50 and envelopes. To me that was worth it. I think the key is with the color correcting but my wife placed that order and Im not so sure that if I placed it that I would have remembered to uncheck that box..

Thanks for the help.

I think thats because the kiosks are mainly used for people with memory cards straight out of the camera. Maybe they think that these people need all of the help that they can get :)

Just used Bleck River Imaging for a client and they turned out awesome, especially the metallic paper.
Very reasonable and very fast...

When you pick up your photos, ask the operator to show you the imprint on the back of the print indicating they have turned off color correction. If they haven't done this they will rerun the prints. (Just shop for awhile if you have to.) Also, have you gone to drycreekphoto.com and downloaded the profiles for the Costco lab you use? Costco updates these every six months so they're pretty decent profiles.

My local Costco tells me to UNCHECK the backprint. That tell the printer: NO EDITS

Second the tip to download the printer profiles from Drycreek
