NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

Like most other labs, New York-based Ado­ra­maPix of­fers a wide range of print­ing so­lu­tions, from photo prints to books and ‘home dé­cor’, the lat­ter in­clud­ing me­tal, acrylic and can­vas prints, as well as op­tions for fram­ing. Billed as a pro­fes­sional-qual­ity ser­vice, there’s nev­er­the­less no sup­port for Adobe RGB colour space so, if you use this for­mat, you’ll have to con­vert your files to sRGB be­fore up­load­ing them. The flip­side is that ICC pro­files are avail­able to down­load for a va­ri­ety of pa­pers.

Bi­ased to­wards Ko­dak pro pa­pers, the main choices are Ko­dak Pro­fes­sional En­dura Supra in glossy, matte or lus­tre fin­ish, plus Ko­dak Pro­fes­sional En­dura Me­tal­lic at an ad­di­tional cost. It’s not Ko­dak all the way, how­ever, as Fuji Pro­fes­sional Deep Matte is a new ad­di­tion to the line-up. Pric­ing is very com­pet­i­tive at, for ex­am­ple, $2.48 for 12x8-inch prints ($3.10 for me­tal­lic).

Per­for­mance

Ado­ra­maPix of­fers free colour and den­sity cor­rec­tion by hand. Pro­cess­ing times for photo prints is typ­i­cally two days (ex­pe­dited one-day pro­cess­ing at ad­di­tional cost), fol­lowed by a va­ri­ety of de­liv­ery op­tions start­ing at $5 for a seven-to­nine day do­mes­tic ser­vice. Free do­mes­tic de­liv­ery is avail­able on or­ders over $39. Print qual­ity is im­pres­sive, and the hand­cor­rec­tion op­tion typ­i­cally yields the best re­sults.
