SnapFish / program deleted after downloading snapfish!

1 United States Review updated:

I thought that the snapfish program sounded great... Upload your photos to snapfish and they will also be downloaded into your picture files... Well no it didn't happen that way. Once I downloaded the snapfish program I was no longer able to download my digital photos directly to my files... I've sent many many emails for assistance with no answers from snapfish.

My photos have been hijacked and the "deal" with snapfish is not a deal... Beware and don't download this program to your computer.

    Read before you download! You CAN upload your pics to SnapFish from your PC, OR you can download the software (what you did) and upload your camera directly to SnapFish. Just remove the software and you'll be fine.

    What the??? Apparently, they allow their uses to upload and share photos, but the do not allow *even the owner* of these images to download them without paying for them!

    Check this out:

    1. Take photos with digital camera

    2. Upload to Snapfish

    3. Click 'Download Hi-Res'

    4. Pay $.50 for the first photo and $.05 for each with a maximum of 50 photos per 'download'.

    What??? Obviously, never use Snapfish for anything, they will sell you your own files! If you uploaded 256 photos, it would cost you $14.75 for the 250, and .75 for the remaining 6, a total of $15.50 to download the files you own.

    It owuld make sense for them to charge if they processed your film, but come on, if you upload, you shouldn't have to pay to download!

    Bad business, avoid!

    Here's how to download the photos from Snapfish to your computer without paying for them.

    On SnapFish, view a slideshow of the photos you want to download. It doesn't matter which photo of the slideshow you have enlarged when you do the following, as long as you know the title of the photo(s) you want to download. View the page's source (View: Source, in Internet Explorer). In the source, search for the title of the photo you want to download. Look for the first URL that appears above the photo's title, it should start with """. Copy and paste the entire URL into your web browser and hit enter. If you did it right, the image will appear by itself and you can right click it and save it to your computer.
