Tips & Warnings

  • Save your username and password, as you will need them to access the website in the future.
  • One hour photo is an option even if you are sending pictures from your computer.
  • Don't forget to mark your pictures with a fountain pen once you receive them!
  • Order prints from Walgreens often to keep your storage file active, or they may delete your photos and you will lose a backup option.
  • Do not rely solely on Walgreens or any other website to store your photos. Make your own CD, save to flash drive or print out your photos.
