PROS / If you are a professional photographer with experience using external applets to edit and order your prints, then myPhotopipe may be the option for you.
CONS / The site is difficult to use and navigate, and we found the help center less than helpful.
VERDICT / MyPhotopipe has the tools necessary to be a great photo editing site, but it misses the mark on creating a site that is user friendly enough for those new to the process.

MyPhotopipe has a gorgeous, professional website, complete with dropdown menus, an aesthetically pleasing color palette and fun extras such as featured photographs. The digital photo printing site is just a formality, as you actually have to use other applications to upload and print your images and create photo gifts.
If you are looking for a digital photo printing service that offers unconventional sizes, myPhotopipe may be the photo printing site for you, as the print sizes range from the standard 4 x 6 print to a massive 24 x 36, and they offer a variety of canvas wraps, fine art and mounting. MyPhotopipe partners with proPhotogifts to offer you a massive selection of photo gifts. This site enables you to add your favorite photo to almost anything from home décor, clothing, furniture, children's toys, jewelry, ornaments, magnets, kitchen utensils and so much more.
Professional photographers may appreciate these different applications, as they could complete the work for their clients with ease and organization. For someone who is just beginning to utilize digital photo printing services, this photo printing site is a tangled web of applications. We missed an all-inclusive site, where you don't have to download anything. We also missed the ability to share the images via email or Facebook.
The tabs located at the top of every page you land on are convenient, in theory, but two rogue tabs lead nowhere. You can hover over the tabs and select from several choices such as photo books or FAQs, however. We found this glitch to be quite a hindrance to the site's navigational flow.
In fact, this site has no navigational flow and we were confused as soon as we left the homepage. This digital photo printing site does not allow you to upload the photos directly to the site, but it requires you to upload an application to print your photos, create a photo book and transform your images into photo gifts.
This digital photo printing site has the standard support features including email, telephone support and a FAQs section. You also have access to tutorial videos, but they only contain instruction on how to use ROES.
While we are disappointed that myPhotopipe does not have the extra gift options that many other digital photo printing sites do, we do appreciate the large selection of print sizes available. This photo printing service is clearly for professional photographers, but there are a few features, such as the creation of photo books, that hobbyists may find appealing.
