My experience...KODAK - Ofoto may not print your pictures.
Ofoto CENSORS your prints. Would YOU be satisfied?
The Short Of Itt
Beware if you use Kodak - Ofoto to process your digital pictures. The people there may decide that your pictures are not fit to print.Beware if you use Kodak - Ofoto to process your digital pictures. The people there may decide that your pictures are not fit to print.
The Boring Details
The picture above is one such example. My girlfriend in China emailed it to me. I uploaded it to for printing. Ofoto said it is copyrighted and thus they would not print my picture. It's not copyrighted!
On a another occasion, Ofoto told me that my entire order will not be processed because it contains "objectionable images". I know my photographs are not objectionable!
Kodak - Ofoto thinks that they are supposed to look at our photographs to decide if they should be censored. Besides these problems, the service's upload is quite difficult to use. PhotoWorks is a much better service; the prices and print quality are the same.
What can you do ?
There is a BOYCOTT of KODAK
Ofoto going on. Do your part...
