Have used Aldi in the past, and I was really impressed. The print quality and the delivery service were second to none. I will be signing up again " Thanks Op"
Great service,used them few times.
8th time in 18 months this has been posted, always the same deal and postage price! X)
Adli?
Great thanks
Not a bad deal ... just got married Tuesday so we can get a set of photos to look at before picking our 'Special ones'.
Thanks
cheers . good deal .
Just got mine, Thanks OP
Thanks OP, how long did it take for your code to be emailed to you?
I thought the Aldi photos I got were poorly printed. They were much darker then the digital originals. If they did some kind of adjustment they did it wrong and the results were not impressive. Alright for £1.33, but I wouldn't use them if I was paying per print.

I order some a month ago from both aldi and snapfish (from this deal hotukdeals.com/dea…677) and IMHO the snapfish ones were much brighter and crisp.

You can also check out this website, which lists all the free photo deals in the UK free-photo-prints.co.uk/
Here is the aldi print held in front of the original on my computer. Pretty disappointing quality.

Surely an Aldi 6"x4" is the same as any 6"x4" print?

whether you mean the image you used has been cropped, then that's a totally different matter and something a lot of retailers do
Worth a try at this price - others are nearly £2 p+p with ~50 free on first order iirc.

Thanks for the deal!
I have just registered but can't see anything about the 100 free prints?!!

Computer brightness, screen resolution, its non comparable unless you get reprinted elsewhere
There are a lot of online photo printers who offer a similar deal. The issue is the size. I cannot imagine wanting any worthwhile photo in a 6"x4" size. As for the quality, I've used Aldi online photo services a few times and cannot have any complaint on that front. Speed is impressive too. This deal as it is isn't hot for me.
I have always found the quality of Aldi's prints excellent

Sorry in advance, as slightly offtopic: Unfortunately, you can't realistically expect any print to look like it does on screen unless it's calibrated. The Aldi prints probably are too dark and you're in a much better position to comment on the deal, but from here it looks like the colour of the running surface and particularly the reds in the print are more accurate than the screen. Of course, it could be your screen, the photo of the images, *my* screen being incorrectly balanced, and so on.

Apologies if you have calibrated the screen, but just making the point that that's one of the biggest problems with modern home digital photography and especially print services, you really don't know what the end product is going to be. Of course, the point being, if all of your prints from Aldi are not to your liking and you find another that more closely matches your expectations, then stick with them. It could well be though that the service you eventually like actually prints brighter/more contrasty than the source so someone else gets a bunch of 'poor' photos if they use them.

Handy hint #1: If you're trying a new printer/service, or just unsure that what you're currently getting is right, then send the second file from this page for printing and see what you get back.

Handy hint #2: find a DIY store with a dulux/crown stand that has a large colour chart showing all hues and gradients. This will be relatively well lit, so take along your camera and take a photo. At home, correct the white balance (or autocorrect if lazy :-) ) and then show the picture full screen and adjust the screen settings until there's good seperation between all the colours. This will go some way to ensuring you're seeing a more realistic representation of what you've captured with your camera. There will be proper photographers having fits at this suggestion I know ;), but can improve the output for the occasional prints. If you can get hold of a preprinted scanner calibration card, photograph it, then compare the screen to the actual card which will make it all easier and givevastly better results.
I tried this offer a couple of weeks ago. Photos came quickly but were disappointing for me. They were over bright and washed out and some were cropped even though I had used their correction tools. I have used other online photo providers with better results than this,so won't use Aldi again.
CODE NOT WORKING FOR ME...!!!!!!!!!!!!
Update on my order aldi prints arrived today along with ones from snapfish. Many were duplicates of out beloved pets so children could have one each. Following are 2 identical uploads, the top one is from snapfish and the bottom one is from aldi. I like them both but if pushed my preference would be the one from aldi (feel free to disagree if you know more about photos than me - which wouldn't be hard!)

These were scanned on an epson 130SX multi printer and are a pretty good likeness of the photos,

Hope this helps someone.

You must remember to untick the auto correct box and select the 10cm x 15cm photos :-))

Whats the best way to calibrate a monitor?
I ordered from aldi, asked for all 6x4 prints and they were all different sizes, I don't mean slightly different I mean some were small, some were long, some even had white borders, they were really bad !! Won't be ordering from them again
