Wallet Size prints in Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, etc.

If anyone ever has taken pictures with a digital camera and brought a memory card to plug into one of WalMart or Target's photo machines, you should know what I'm talking about:

WalMart, for example, charges $0.19 for a one hour print sized 4 x 6 in. They charge $0.58 for a one hour print of 2 wallet sized photos (2 x 3 in.). $0.58! It may not seem like much, but when you are giving away 100 wallet photos, it adds up. Simply stated, each actual wallet print ends up costing $0.24. The wallets are printed on the same exact 4 x 6 paper that costs $0.19 for a regular sized photo: A pretty high markup since a wallet print could potentially cost $0.10 ( of $0.19)

The reason I'm posting this is to ask: Is there a photo website or program that would pre-format the prints where I could upload a file to WalMart's site and print a 4x6 photo for $0.19 that actually contains 2 wallets in the JPEG?

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to shop around for a better deal on wallet size photos...for example, Costco charges 39 cents for 4 2x3 prints.

Thanks for replying jayK,

Could you tell me one more thing: Do they come pre cut, or are they on a sheet of regular 8 x 12 photo paper and you have to cut them?

Create wallet-size prints

You can also do this easily in PhotoShop or even Windows Paint. Just copy and paste the original photo into a new blank .JPG which is larger. For example, if your source photo is 2400 x 1600, create a 4800 x 3200 new .JPG and then paste in the image 4 times. A 4x6 print can contain four 2x3 inch photos if there are no borders.
