PrintSprint...If you've taken a few hundred (or thousand) photos with your digital camera and found it so tedious to make prints that you just don't get around to it, then PrintSprint is the solution for you.

While there are many ways to make prints, they usually involve multiple applications, windows, or several views and modes and lots of clicking. PrintSprint makes it simple to select photos, set the print size, quantity, and crop and then generate your order. All from a single window. Better yet, PrintSprint never modifies your originals and it works with your organizational system so it doesn't matter if you're using more...

What's New

Version 1.6:
  • Added the feature (in the preferences) to automatically remove photos from the print job after they have been printed or collected
  • Substantially sped up printing to PostScript printers.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.5 or later

I was very hopeful at the outset, but I found the demo fairly unresponsive, lots of lag time after making choices, no apparent drag & drop support - which might help speed things up. For those of us who shoot raw photos, the resolution or file sizes - or something the app is chewing on - results in blurred thumbnails until image loading is resolved followed by constant [tedious] trips back to the 'add image' button after cropping (cropping tool is the smoothest part of the process). This could be a useful little app with [a great deal of] rethinking.

The purpose of this application completely eludes me.

It is advertised as a solution to cut down the number of applications and the complexity involved in printing your photos. But unless I am overlooking something blatantly obvious, it does the exact opposite.

The thing is that PrintSprint doesn't actually do what its name hints at, which is making prints. It is merely an aid in resizing and cropping your photos upon which it allows you to "generate an order". What this boils down to is that the resized/cropped copies of your photos are saved into a folder after which the task of actually printing them is still up to you.

In other words, PrintSprint does not diminish the number of applications, views, windows, etc. as it claims on the tin, but rather adds itself into the mix, duplicates readily available functions (cropping, rotating, etc.) in the photo management software it is advertised to coexist with (iPhoto, Aperture) and stops where it could have been most useful: making the actual print.

Wrong. I've checked this app out. If you have a folder full of pictures and say they are in the RAW format. You can very quickly crop and size them to the desired size and either save them somewhere else on the disk in jpg format, for example. Try doing that from another photo program. It is a pain! The workflow is very different. This gets the job done very quickly. Then you can either order or print the already scaled and cropped pics.

Apparently, our workflows are quite different.

First of all, you cannot crop and resize RAW files; they need to be processed to an editable format first. PrintSprint does not have a configurable RAW processor (at least none that I could find) so you are processing all your RAW files based on the same default set of parameters, which largely defeats the purpose of shooting RAW to begin with.

Furthermore, I cannot remember ever having applied the exact same crop on an entire batch of photos. If my pictures need cropping, they do so on an individual basis which I can easily do in whatever software I use to process my RAW files or edit my photos (Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop, DPP, Capture NX, etc.). If you still want to batch crop your photos, these tools allow that as well.
