Best place to get pictures developed in Montreal?

I used to go to Walmart, but the past couple of years, they've gone way downhill, IMO, and I was wondering if anybody else had a good place to go? I'm looking for quality first and price second...

Oh, no not costco! Two of their stores had dirty negative processors and put a huge scratch down the middle of my whole negative. And nobody prints the pictures- they aren't adjusted at all. It's just machine done...

Probably... Loblaws does pics too, but they use Fuji paper, so I'm not sure... Kodak is best for reds and yellows, and Fuji is best for blues and greens... I'm used to reds and yellows...

Jean Coutu is pretty good, at least when we were in Montreal that's the place we went all the time. Japan Camera was OK too, but because they are not as widespread as Jean Coutu, we didn't use it as much.

Costco is a big no no! In Ottawa, we only use Black's.

I forgot about the pharmacies! Thanks you guys! We used to go to uniprix and the pics turned out great. I'll try the pharmacies around here... There is a big photo place on my way home but I know the "specialists" are usually the most expensive...

Jean Coutu is very good for general pics.

If you are looking for professional developping which costs 2-3 times the price of Jean Coutu - Try Corlab on Peel street near Notre Dame, or Yves Thomas on St. Hubert near Laurier.

No Cd, treats or party favours - but add tax too.
