Review: Expressions Photo allows you to create custom digital photo orders on your phone

Create and send orders of digital photos from your phone to Expressions Photo for pickup.

Expressions Photo is an app that allows you to send your images digitally to a local store for pickup later in the day. The tools included here are decent, allowing you to pull photos from your device, create digital orders and albums, and to submit them for printing in any number of sizes. The entire process only takes a few seconds to complete and upload times are very fast.

After installation, you'll be prompted to create an account with the app. This doesn't require much information because payment won't be made through the app. After you submit an order, you'll choose where to pick it up, and then visit the store to pick it up at the indicated time, so the phone number and e-mail address are the only two things that need to be accurate. The interface here looks minimal, at first, but it works well for what the app offers, making it easy to move from upload to album selection in just a couple of quick taps. Actually uploading photos is fast, too, and you can quickly choose from a large number of different options for the prints.

Expressions Photo offers a great free app that supplements its in-store service. From uploading your images to a remote server for printing, to managing your local photos and choosing which prints you'll have made, the app does everything it needs to do to be a useful companion for digital photographers.
