my pictures look very sharp on my computer monitor, but when i take them to print on one of the photo print machines, at a local store, the quality is much poorer. any ideas why? :confused:

Are the printed colors bad, don't match the screen, do you get jaggedy edges on the print, what specifically don't you like about the prints? And what size images are you taking to the printer? :confused:

the pictures are not as sharp or clear. i am taking my memory card and printing the pictures from it.

That should not be the case. I never used one of those machines but it would be a guess that something is not getting read correctly. Try another method of printing.
