Is Snapfish an American company or is it a local operation?
Snapfish is wholly owned by Hewlett-Packard (HP) Corporation with offices worldwide. Each country is locally managed and operated, with a print provider to create and mail prints and other products within the region.
Are the prices in American dollars (USD) or in Australian or New Zealand dollars?
The prices are in Australian dollars for the www.snapfish.com.au website and in New Zealand dollars for the www.snapfish.co.nz website.
Where are the prints made and shipped from?
The prints and products for Australia and New Zealand are manufactured and shipped from Australia.
What type of printers do you use, and what is the quality of the prints? What kind of guarantees do you provide?
Snapfish offers prints and print products of the highest quality in the industry, using the latest state-of-the-art equipment. To demonstrate our confidence, Snapfish offers a full-refund guarantee on the print quality.
The speed of uploads depends on a lot of factors ranging from the speed of your internet connection to the various traffic issues on the internet on the time. Snapfish offers two types of uploads, Fast Upload and Large Print Upload for printing posters. In the Fast Upload scenario, Snapfish would transfer the picture at the speed of 30-60 seconds per picture.
When do I use Fast Upload as opposed to Large Print Upload?
When you upload photos to the Snapfish website, you have two choices:
Fast uploadLarge print upload
When you choose Fast Upload, we upload a medium-resolution image to your Snapfish account. This size is ideal for prints of any size, up to 8x12. Fast Upload is also sufficient for every gift in the Snapfish store. The only product you will not be able to order is poster prints.
When you choose Large Print Upload, we upload a high-resolution image to your Snapfish account. This size is good for everything on the Snapfish site, including poster prints. However, it takes longer to upload the picture.
Do you support multiple photo upload from a Mac?
We're sorry, but at this time the multiple upload feature is not available on Mac systems.
Do you have a print preview in the cart?
You can preview your image in various sizes at your shopping cart. When you hold your mouse pointer over the thumbnail of your image in the shopping cart, you can preview the output of images in your selected size. At this time this feature will only work on the Windows operating system and not Apple Mac.
Can I get the pictures I uploaded back to my PC, or order a CD?
We do not currently support CD ordering for the Australia and New Zealand sites. When you upload images, we maintain two copies of your photo, one low-resolution and one high-resolution. The low-resolution photos are what you see when you view and share your photos on our website. The hi-resolution photos are stored in our system and are used to produce prints, enlargements and photo gifts. Although we do not yet offer a high-resolution download option in Australia and New Zealand, you can log into the US website at www.snapfish.com with your same email address and password to utilize this feature.
The instructions below cover FREE low-res downloads for both Windows and Macintosh Computers.

If you are using a Windows PC
Place your cursor (pointer) at the center of the picture, click the right button. A box will appear, giving you several choices. You will probably want to choose "Save [Picture] As . . ." then just choose the place on your computer where you want to store the photo. If the name of that file does not automatically end with ".jpg", you will need to give the photo a name that ends with ".jpg" -- don't forget the dot before jpg! If you don't use .jpg, your computer will probably not recognize this as a photo when you try to use it later on. After you have given your photograph file a name, save the file.
If you are using a Mac computer
Place your cursor (pointer) at the center of the picture, press the button and hold it down. A box will appear, giving you several choices. You will probably want to choose "Save [Picture] As . . ." then just choose the place on your computer where you want to store the photo. Your Macintosh software will probably recognize the file type without using .jpg, but you may use this file on another computer at some time, so we recommend you add .jpg at the end of the name anyway. After you have given your photograph file a name, save the file.
We will send you an email when we receive your order and again when it was dispatched from our factory location. Typically, we will print and post your pictures within 2 working days. Including delivery time, you should receive your order within 3-6 working days. Please refer to the Shipping Information page for further information.
If I order using Express Post, how long does it take to arrive?

Is it okay to type in my credit card number? Is it secure?
We understand the concern people have about sharing their credit cards with an on-line service.
We want to assure you that our site is very secure and meets the standards required to conduct secure, online transactions.

All of these indicators confirm that the page(s) you are on is secure for transactions.
Your credit card number will be encrypted for storage and is not shown anywhere on the website--only the final 4 digits are shown to refresh your memory. In fact, if you log-in and edit your account information, even you won't be able to see the whole number. Example: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-1234.
