Patricia -

Another option if you need very high quality output would be to take the
images on disk to a local photographer who uses a system that prints a
continuous tone image onto photographic paper from a digital file. The
output is pretty amazing.

I asked our local photographer about price and she said $5-15 per 8 x 10
print, depending on the studio's mark-up. For their system, the image needs
to be only 320 dpi, but the output looks just like a photograph.

Obviously, it would be much cheaper to just use a straight photographic
process, but if you wanted to output images manipulated in PhotoShop, only
needed a few small images that you could print four or six up on an 8" x 10"
sheet and had a little slush fund just for such projects, it might be worth
a look.
