Where do you print your photos?

I've been using Swan Photo Labs to print photos by mail. They have great quality but, unfortunately, no bulk discounts so they can be pricey. Another great thing about Swan is they still process film — lots of different kinds of film.

Over the past year I've tried local shops — Walgreens and CVS — but I'm not impressed with the quality. The pictures look like I printed them at home, or maybe not that good.

Here's a review of 10 online photo services (It's a little dated; Kodak Gallery is now run by Shutterfly). I'd like to find the following:
  • Good quality prints
  • Decent prices (eg. bulk discounts)
  • Ability to share with others
  • Free high-resolution downloads (Hey, if I took the picture, I shouldn't have to pay to download it.)
  • Reliable backup, or "cloud" service
  • Quality photobooks and page prints

What do you use, and why do you like it?
