“Smugmug owns no printers. We focus on great photo sharing and do our best to make sure our customers can buy prints from a top print provider. Authoritative comparisons are hard to find. We see comparisons in popular magazines and wonder, what test shots were used? Who did the judging and what were their tastes? Under what light did they view the photos? Why are opinions so varied? We decided to dig deeper. Over a three-month period ending November, 2003, we sent 26 test shots repeatedly to 10 print providers.”
