I read ehomeupgrade’s post about qoop-flickr and it reminded that I wanted to post some brief feedback on qoop+flickr.
The ordering experience was OK, nothing stellar, but by far the biggest downer was the print quality of the photos in the book that I ordered. Pixely, dithered — how else can I describe them?
While Derek Powazek does point out the inferior print quality, I think he understates it.
Anyways, I’m surprised that flickr did a deal with qoop with the quality being what it is. You’d think print quality would be criteria numero uno for them!
UPDATE: Phil, President of QOOP, found my posting and has just responded in the comments. His attention is commendable and I look forward to seeing them improve the quality of the QOOP-Flickr service.
UPDATE 2: Phil just called me and after chatting with him, I have a high level of confidence that they’ll address these issues fairly soon. When I see the new results, I’ll definitely be posting my feedback then.
