How many of the THREE HUNDRED shots are necessary to tell the story? Why not pick the top 10 and print those? BTW, Go Army!

To be clear, what lens did you use?

Just print out your best shots.

As a Photojournalist I took many shots to get the one I'd be proud enough to publish. Editors look at many things to get a shot that will not only look good but will relay the actions and directions they need for their layouts.

Jules, it does not seem that anyone has answered your specific question directly yet. Did you actually find a command within PSE 15 to directly send your pictures to Costco? I could not find one either in Share or Create. But I could have missed it.

So here is one way you could do it. If you are going to print a large number of photos, you will probably find it easier to Export the pictures to a CD/flash drive, and then take it to Costco for printing. The Export command allows customization of thee format as you export the images. Assuming you are shooting JEGs, I would keep the original format.

Generally to do the above, from the Organizer, click on File > Export and then follow the screen prompts.

If you wanted to upload your pictures to Costco, I would still Export the photos to a temporary folder on your computer. The reason for this is when you go online , at some point the Costco app will have you go to the folder and select your images to print. I find it easier to have all of the images located in one spot. After uploading, I delete the folder. These exported images are copies, not the originals, remember. If you do this sort of thing a lot, you may want to set up a permanent folder on your PC, and just clean it out when done with a batch of photos.

It just dawned on me, you may have bought PSE 15 from Costco, and have a command embedded in the Organizer. I think they did that a few years ago.

Hopefully some of the above will be helpful.

Go to Costco photocenter site, scroll down to order prints. You have the option to upload from several media (in your case from your computer). The price list and available size options for prints is included right under the upload options.

I do this regularly from home and pick up the same day. Quick service and nice quality. You do have to establish an account with the photocenter (also done on line). Hope this helps.
