The Good Clean interface; excellent print preview; handles TIFF, GIF, and BMP images in addition to JPEG files; image editor works well.

The Bad Prints are slightly pricier than the competition's; upload is occasionally sluggish.

The Bottom Line In a sea of high-quality online photo services, Snapfish swims near the top.

Review summary

Since we last reviewed this online photo site, Snapfish has made some big improvements. Its interface is still as cuddly and orderly as ever, and its once hum-drum editing functions, print processing, and Internet-based storage and sharing have all gotten a major overhaul. The result? Snapfish is closing in on our current photo-storage site of choice, Ofoto.

Make one-touch tweaks with Snapfish's handy editing tools.

Like its competitors, Snapfish does not require a download or an installation. Just go to the site and enter your name and your e-mail address. Then choose from two ways of uploading photos. One is to upload up to 12 images at a time from your hard drive. The other is to install the Drag And Drop tool and drag your pics from your drive to the site's photo-upload preview area, which is in your browser. After either process, click Upload Photos to send them to your album. Snapfish will let you upload TIFF, GIF, and BMP images in addition to JPEG files. Both approaches worked flawlessly in our tests, though we did experience a slow upload from time to time.
