Well, now I am going to order a print through Apple's online print service and this is very easy and the quality is quite good. So I have an image here and I've cropped it to 8x10 proportions. If you don't remember how to do that, make sure you go back to the cropping movie because it's very important for the print, the image that we have here, to fit on the printing paper and that's what's going on happen. I am going to order an 8x10 print. Now I am going to go up to File and I am going to go to Order Prints and we get the screen here.
So you see your print. Now if you have multiple images selected then those will show up right here and you'll get to set the order for each image. We are going to do an 8x10, so I am just going to put one there. We are going to order one 8x10. Now it's usually a good idea to-- if you're going to order more than one image-- to do those all at once, because you'll save on shipping. I am going to have to pay full shipping for one image here, where if I ordered four images the shipping would be about the same.
Okay, so we are going to order one 8x10, go down here click Buy now, and then you have to put in your ZIP code here, where it's going to go. So we are going to have it go to lynda.com and you can see what I mean about the shipping. It's actually going to cost more than the print. So you order more prints and then the prints cost more than the shipping. Aha! So all becoming very clear isn't it? And then we check out.
Now, hopefully you have an Apple ID. It's the same thing that you use for iTunes and the App Store and all that good stuff. Go ahead and sign in and then you get your screen. So all you have to do is check to make sure that the shipping information and that the payment information are correct, and just sort of eyeball the little thing, just like you're buying anything else. This is no different than buying anything else online, and then once you're ready, you just go down to Place Order, click it.
What will happen is that iPhoto will upload the image to the Apple Online Service. They will process your order. In about one to three days, guess what you will have in your mailbox?
