PROS / You will thoroughly enjoy transforming your images with the editing tools.
CONS / This service does not have live chat support.
VERDICT / RitzPix is enjoyable and simple to use, and provides a long list of professional-grade site features.
This digital photo printing site has a flow, a rhythm, which takes you through the necessary steps to get you to the final step, checkout. On this journey, RitzPix offers powerful editing tools, a user-friendly site and photo albums that are easily organized and accessible.
After a family vacation or special occasion, you can bring your JPEG files to RitzPix for great service and easy-to-use features and tools. You will need to create a free account with the digital photo printing service, and once you do, the site will filter you to the My Photos section. Here, you can upload your photos. This includes choosing the photo size you would like to upload. As expected, the larger the size you want your photos to upload as, the longer the process time; although, we were pleased with how fast our poster-sized print upload occurred.
When you have uploaded your favorite memories, the images will populate in your My Collections section. With each collection, you have several options, including creating a slideshow to view your images or sharing your collection via email. If you are a professional photographer, or would like to keep anyone from using your images without your permission, you have the option to choose whether to make your images public for anyone to see, or keep them private. You can also add a watermark to the photo.
We are impressed with this site, especially the editing tools. This photo printing service allows you to add special effects, text, stickers, frames and more with Picnik photo editing software. You do not have to download this application, but you simply click the edit tab and the site transfers you to the editing room. We had an enjoyable time trying out all the special effects on our photos and the multiplicity of choices really stimulate the imagination. If you want even more choices, you can upgrade to be a Premium user of the editing application for a monthly fee.
If you are looking to turn some of your favorite vacation shots into cherished memories, this digital photo printing service has a variety of photo gifts. Some of our favorite personalized gifts include a glass cutting board, metallic prints, holiday ornaments, business card cases, luggage tags and so much more. You can also create photo books, photo cards and stationary with your photos. If you have any older photos, this digital photo printing service does photo restorations, print to prints and photo scans as well.
As you go through the uploading and ordering process, this online photo printing site includes helpful directions along the way so you will know exactly how to upload your prints and select your photo collections. The entire site helps you transition effortlessly through each process.
Video tutorials are one of our favorite help and support options, as they take you through a variety of processes step by step with visuals and voice directions. RitzPix does a fantastic job with their tutorials. We would have liked to see more than three how-to videos, however. The videos go slowly enough for you to get all of the information you will need to upload photos and create a photo book and a MyShow DVD. To view more non-help videos, you can visit RitzPix's YouTube channel.
You can access the help and support tab on the homepage. Here, you will find an assortment of FAQs and help topics, including general questions, photo management, ordering, checkout and more. If you are still in need of help, you can email this digital photo printing service with your concerns or call them.
RitzPix pleasantly surprised us with its level of professional features and functions, all while still maintaining a digital photo printing site that is simple for everyone to use. We enjoyed editing our images and creating photo gifts and books. We appreciate the help and support options, including the tutorial videos and step-by-step instructions found in the FAQs section. The service is lacking a support phone number and live chat support, however.
