I just received pictures I ordered from Photopass, and am a little disappointed. I could tell from proofs that this particular photographer was not the best, but thought perhaps after printing on quality paper editing I did etc, the pictures would improve. They are ok but really are no better than any that I took on iphone or my cybershot. The fact that they captured background and both of us at the same time was a factor in my purchase. At least we have them. I know I didn’t have to purchase them but —there are no “do overs”…
I will say that the ones that my DD had taken during American Idol (they give each contestant their own photopass card) were much much better, so I guess it does depend on the photographer. We already purchased some while we were there, and are working on choosing others for family members now.
American Idol photopass card gives you more time to order, than a regular card btw…her photos don’t expire for another few weeks where as the ones on my card expire soon.
Just FYI—there really isn’t any way of knowing how well your photographer will do, but perhaps if it’s important to get a great shot of your group, better to do that at the front end of your visit so you can view the pictures and try again if needed.
Oh—and it took 3 days for our photopass pictures to show up this trip. We kept checking and they kept telling us to give more time…in the past, they have been available to view by the end of the day—or the next morning at the latest.
Just thought I would pass this info along…:mellow:
