Why you can trust Top Ten Reviews Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

During our research to find the best photo prints online, we came across Sam's Club Digital Photo Center and, despite our initial feelings of trepidation, we quickly fell in line with this online photo printing service. In order to use the Sam's Club Digital Photo Center, however, you must have a Sam's Club membership.

During the upload process, you have the option to upload your photo albums from your Facebook account. Because of this option, we expected to be able to share newly created albums to Facebook as well. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

To share via email, simply input email addresses and an email will be sent to your recipients. In the email, they are able to click on the photo, which links them back to the Sam's Club Photo Center. They can also view a slideshow of the album. If your recipients want to order prints from your album, however, they, too, must be members of Sam's Club.

You are able to edit your photos directly within your digital photo printing album, or you can edit them as you create photo gifts. We were pleased with the editing tools that this digital photo printing service offers. You are able to edit your image (rotate, zoom, flip), add effects like black and white or sepia, crop according to size (which we love), change the orientation and fix red eye. If you have over-edited your photo, you can revert to the original image.

Photo gifts are one of the best reasons to employ a digital photo printing service. Photo gifts help preserve your special memories in creative ways that you can share with others. You can turn your favorite images into a variety of gifts from puzzles, thank you cards, T-shirts, mugs, ornaments, mouse pads and much more. Getting one of the best photo books is a popular choice for every occasion. With this digital photo printing center, you are able to create a customized photo book with ease. Add the photos yourself or select auto-fill to create a book of memories in a few minutes.

The upload process is extremely simple. It takes mere seconds to upload photos from your computer, media source or digital camera. You are also able to upload photos with ease from your Facebook and Picasa accounts.

In order to upload photos from your Facebook account, you must allow the Photo Center Import Tool to access your photos. In seconds, all of your favorite Facebook albums appear within a queue. To select the photos you would like to import into your Sam's Club Photo Center account, simply drag and drop the images. If you happen to select an image that you already have in your queue, the photo will not drop. We love this feature because it limits duplication later on.

This digital photo printing site has a dismal customer support section, which is really disappointing because the rest of the photo printing site is great. While there is a large amount of information available in the FAQs section, the only other support option available is the phone line. We wish this service would focus more on its customer service section and include at least an online support form that you can fill out. You can contact Sam's Club Photo Center via phone Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CST, Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sam's Club Digital Photo Center has many impressive qualities such as an uploading process that is simple to use and a great variety of editing tools. We were pleased with the quality of our prints– especially our black-and-white image. We were disappointed with the customer service section and would like to see more options, such as email and live chat support.
