Help me make a collage of photos and send it off to be printed A4 (UK)

I have tons of photos of me and my partner on my iphone and would like to put them all together in a grid fashion (maybe 10x7 photos ish) to then be sent off and printed so i can frame it and give it to her as a present. I would really like an app that would be able to do all of this in one shot but cant seem to see any. Failing that, any other option that is kind of straight forward. Id rather not be messing around with Photoshop templates and stuff if possible.

Cheap and easy frames and prints of wedding photos for gifts

Hi all! For our wedding, we got a disc and rights to all of our photos, but no prints. As the holidays are approaching, we want to get some prints and nice frames to give close family. However, money is tight and we are lazy. What is the cheapest and easiest way to get a dozen or so prints and frames in standard sizes, at a quality level somewhere above we-bought-everything-at-the-dollar-store? Thanks!

How to sort image files by format, camera model and date using ExifTool?

I have a metric gajillion image files dumped on one external hard drive. As the first step in my effort to backup my pictures, I need to organize them. I have tried for hours for exiftool to do my bidding but failed. What might be the proper instruction to have it sort all files into a new directory structure that looks like this: Image format (NEF, JPG)/Camera model/Year/Month/Date/Originalfilename.extension Thank you! ?

How do I simplify my iMac photo collection by only using Picasa?

Lost and Found Photos

I just bought a digital camera at a second hand store and found about 20 of what look like prom pictures. Is there a lost and found photo site where I can post them since I have no way of knowing who these people are or how to find them, but don't want to delete their pics?

Online Photo Album

Our wedding photographer sent us our original full resolution pictures through Dropbox. I want to put together an online album to share with guests. I usually post pictures via Picassa; is there another platform that would be better? Also, I would prefer to keep the album password protected. Relatedly, I want to print thank-you cards and a wedding album. I have looked into Artifact Uprising and MPix but would love recommendations on print services too. Thanks!

Managing photos in a post-Picasa (?) world

Simple browser based Instagram-like photo editing?

Now that Google Photos has premiered, it appears that they've gutted the browser based photo editing features from Google+ Photos. I miss being able to quickly upload an image from my computer and tweak a bunch of Instagramish filter settings to get that lo-fi look that all the kids love nowadays. Are there any good equivalents out there, or is there a way to get the old photo editing capability back? [more inside]

Where can I find photos of real peoples's apartments/homes?

Recommend Image Archive Alternatives to Flickr?

Flickr used to be my go-to site for getting free images to use in classroom powerpoints. Even with a lot of spam, you could search and find nice images, especially diagrams and non-photo visuals, quite effectively. Now it has even MORE spammy photos and the search function feels more inadequate and the site seems a whole lot *slower*. Are there good alternative archive sites I could turn to instead? (I've already tried Google and Bing Image search - they're OK, but a bit too noisy as well) Thanks for any tips!

How to turn off Google Photos

I don't think there's any way to uninstall the Google Photo bloatware on my unrooted Android phone, which is super-annoying. I've turned off "upload to Google+" but am angsty that one day, after an update or whatever, it might re-default to upload. I don't want Google saving copies of my stuff, and I am not reassured by their help materials, which talk about me "not seeing" the images anymore if I delete them. That's not the same as Google not having them, which is what I'm trying to avoid. Without rooting my phone, is there a way I can delete the app, or stop it from storing my stuff? [more inside]

From Phone To Flickr, Resized and Fast

Confused about iphone photos backup

What is the correct way to make sure all of my photos are saved to my computer when I sync my iphone? I am on a PC, and I don't have iphoto. Are they being saved when I sync? Not sure about this. There is not nearly enough space in my icloud account for them all, so I have that turned off for photos for now. When I go to the photos tab in itunes, it allows me to sync additional photo folders on my computer but it says nothing about my iphone photos being saved to the computer with each sync.

How to take better photographs of movement in low light indoors.

I'm having problems with taking photos indoors when there's a lot of movement. Prime example: weddings. Most of the shots turn out blurry.

Without using a tripod or flash what's the best way to adjust the manual settings to compensate?

Apps That Help Combine Photos to Fix When People Don't Smile or Blinking

What's *like* scanning on my phone, but without the phone? Or a scanner?

I have and use Turbo Scan on my iPhone. It does what it does beautifully--snaps a picture of a page, straightens it, compensates for perspective, and best (for me), takes the yellow age coloring away, leaving me with a pure black and white image. (I'm mostly scanning old sheet music). Are there any Macintosh apps that would do the same corrections from a digital snapshot? Reason: I have a lot of pre-existing images--high res, but they look like photographs of a page, not that easy-reading, clean black and white. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Easy way to manage iPhone photos and iCloud photo backups?
