We don't have a Sam's membership anymore, so is there anywhere else that I can upload and pick up pics that come in Matte finish? Tried Target and there's are glossy. TIA!

My Wal-Mart has matte photos that you can upload via their website or Snapfish and pick up in an hour.

I agree with above poster, if you have a Costco membership I would recommend the "lustre."

Do you have a Kroger? I use Fred Meyers, which they own. I love their quality more than anything!

Archivers can do matte in their new Memory Labs.

Walgreens photos come in matte if they the resized for most digital cameras size of 4x5.53 (or whatever size it actually is). If they are true 4x6 photos they are glossy, at least this is how it is at the WG I get mine printed at.

Walmart does matte.
Walgreens has given me both matte and glossy with the true digital size. 4x6 is always glossy there.

I wish we had a Costco. It looks like a magical place LOL

Walmsrt does matte. The one by me does a great job -- I like their results better than Costco. The only thong is that Costco has an option to not adjust the prints and sometimes I want that.

Yesterday, I ordered 145 pictures from WM. I did it online and could have picked them up in 1 hour for about $25. However, they were offering free shipping. So, for $11.25, I should receive them in the mail by Thursday. Matte finish too. I am happy with that!

My Walgreens also prints in matte finish for the true digital size but in glossy for the others. A little annoying to get different finishes, but most wind up being matte unless I've edited a photo.

Anyone know how I can edit but still keep the true digital size??

I totally HATE the whole "true digital" thing... I always end up with 2 different sized photos for the same event. I assume because some are phone pics and some camera pics, but I really have no idea why... I guess I just don't understand what it really means and how to avoid it

And, I end up with different sizes, so I certainly don't want different finishes on top of that...I wonder why they don't let you pick?

I have no Archivers or Costco. I do have a Kroger...I will have to look into that. I will probably do this order from Walmart, since they are closer.
