Getting "professional" photos developed at Asda

Just got back from getting a couple of photos developed at Asda from a shoot I did the other day with my son and nieces. I'm getting them made into a photobook for my Mother's birthday in a couple of weeks. I wanted to see how they looked in print rather on screen as I'd done a fair bit of touching up.

For the second time now I've had hassle over the copyright of the photos. First time happened last year and the woman got really stroppy with me, not accepting I took them and having to sign something to say I was the copyright holder (or had permission from). This time they were less stroppy but still very doubting. Before collecting I submitted a few more to test which I'll pick up in a bit, the funny thing is this time they took my phone number (never done that before). Perhaps they'll call me about them?

Does anyone else have this problem getting their photos developed? It's not my fault I take good photos, I shouldn't be made to feel like a criminal when i get photos developed. I wouldn't mind but you have to agree that you have the copyright holders permission before you can continue on the touch screen anyway.

Yeah I wouldn't go to Asda for the finished article but I just needed to proof them quickly.

I think its asda just being a pain, I was partly a pro photographer, and my friend still does weddings, and uses several online printers, and never been hassled

I think just the basic thing you already agree too (im sure the online ones have the same in their t&c's anyway) is more than enough, and don't need someones subjective opinion to give you delays or hassle

I think i would make it clear, hassle me again, and I wont come back

I don't actually understand what is happening (a bit tired I guess, sorry, also never had photos developed at Asda).

Are they asking you (who took the photos) if you have permission from a magical copyright holder (i.e. they think you've nicked the photos or are making reproductions)?

Is that the jist of it?

They're questioning if I have the right to reproduce the photos. They asked if I had the copyright to them, I said I did to which they asked for a copy of the certificate or something. I just said I took them to which she may as well call me a liar the way she looked at me.

Costco is good too.

Thats terrible!
Incidentely, you know the cakes that you get your own photo printed onto? They don't bat an eyelid if you take a picture in there, such as a disney character, no one asks for copyright proof there!
Seems bizarre if you ask me!

In Asda? Asda employees are worried about copyright?

GIve them a slap and tell them to catch a grip before you take your business elsewhere. That or take a photo of yourself with the subjects at the start to prove it's you or whatever. (Extreme I know, just stick with the slap)

Asda is used by many a semi-pro/wedding photographers. They print on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper which is good quality. My friend has a wedding photography business and has photoshop set up correctly to match the local Asda printing profile. He is a regular and has no problems with copyright. Once they know who you are and you have signed up an agreement they seem to be a trusted service.

That's madness. I have used Photobox for the past 6 years with no trouble at all. They are quick and reasonably cheap.

I use them all the time for the prints I sell from my website as well as personal photos.

Asda are clearly f'ing mental!

I got a few (about 20) of the professional wedding photos we had taken printed at asda and didnt get questioned at all.

Got 3 full sets (90 photos per set) of professional photos of my niece in 7x5 printed at asda and wasnt questioned at all when I collected them, BUT I think she was supposed to because it did say COPYRIGHT in big letters in the information box.

Both sets were ordered via internet and collected in store. Oh, and I did have permission to get them printed! The photographer actually suggested asda, said the photos were quite good quality and I agree (have had 100s of photos from all of the online sites)
