Get hard copies of your DROID X pictures at CVS or other retailers
Owners of the Motorola DROID X have a feature that will allow you to take a picture on the phone and have 4 x 6 hard copies of the shot waiting for you at a local retailer, like CVS. The process is a snap (no pun intended). Take the picture and select it from your phone's photo gallery. Click on the option that says "Print to Retail" under the Share selection. There you will find a list of participating retailers in your area. You can also punch in a zip code to get a list of places where you can send your photos.

From there, you are sent to a screen that gives you info on the store like the address, hours of operation, phone number and pricing. Enter in your contact information, select the number of prints desired, and if you are happy with the price, click on "place order" and in about one hour, your prints will be ready for pick-up. The beauty of this process is that you can use a zip code to find a retailer near Grandma and have her pick up some new shots of her precious grandchild at the local CVS. Instead of waiting a few days to get the pictures in the mail, in about 1 hour, she can be showing off the latest snapshot of her "little angel" at the afternoon card game.

That's going to come in handy. I love how technology just makes it easier and easier to get shit done! I mean uploading prints through the internet isn't too bad, but now it will be (in theory) a total cinch. With my Droid X, my phone really IS going to replace my point-and-shoot camera.

i think close up pictures are absolutely amazing, but normal far away pictures look nice until you zoom in, or to crop a picture.

Yea, except this isn't a big deal. Any phone with a SD card can print 4x6 hard copies at any photo place or any retailer with a photo printing booth. Or you can print off your printer at home. Shockingly simple.

I know what you're saying, but I absolutely loathe going into a store, loading up my SD card, standing there, going through pics, figuring out what I want to print, how many, etc. That's not even counting the places that might only have one booth, or even two, that ALWAYS seem to be full. And I have yet to see a home printer print quality photos like you buy at retailers. There might be one out there, but after I buy one, and then the paper...I think I'll just stick try out this method and see what comes of it. Worse case scenario, it sucks and I keep uploading to and picking up in the store later.
