Order quality prints online



CodedColor allows you to order quality prints of your pictures online in a lab of your choice. In comparison to printing on your home photo printer, the cost for online prints is usually less than half.


The process consists of the following steps:


1.Collect the desired images in order catalogs
2.Review the images
3.Specify size and quantity of you prints
4.Transfer the images to the Online Lab through the use of an Order Client.


CodedColor currently offers the following third party order clients:




Fotowire Client


Fotowire is one of the largest photo mailer services worldwide. The client lets you choose among participating labs in many countries.


The client is available in German and English.


Silverlab Client (Foto Quelle)


Use this client to order pictures from within Germany. You can also select local pickup locations for your prints.


The client is only available in German.


The Order Wizard guides you through the process of ordering prints in 4 easy steps. Activate the Wizard by selecting Print > Print Order Wizard, and follow the instructions. As an alternative you can use the shortcut steps described below to prepare and place your order:


Order Selected Images Immediately


If you want to skip the process of collecting and reviewing images, you can select images with the mouse (in combination with the CTRL or SHIFT buttons) to place an order directly. Please note, that with this shortcut you will not be able to collect pictures from different folders.


Print Order


Unless you call Order Selected Images Immediately, all pictures you want to have prints from are collected in a Print Order Catalog. You can work with these collections as with any other catalog.


Add to Print Order


Adds the images to the current print order catalog (collection). You can always review or remove pictures from the collection later.


New Print Order


Allows you to create a new catalog for collecting pictures.


Order: 030424


Displays the current print order, in this case a folder (catalog) with the name 030424 containing links to the images. Select this menuitem to change the current print order catalog. You can also reopen previous orders and add more images.


Select Client


CodedColor uses third party Order Clients of participating Labs, to do the actual transfer and processing of the images. Here you can select the installed order client or download a new client by selecting Look for Updates.


Process Print Order


Transfers the pictures from the print order catalog to the selected client. Specify size and quantity of your prints in the client program.


Show Print Order Panel


Display or hide the panel showing the pictures of your current print order. This panel is similar to the catalog panel, because print orders are actually catalogs containing links to images.


Browse Print Order


Opens the current print order in the Organizer window. This allows you to review and edit (rotate) your photos before placing an order.
