15 Things To Know Before Visiting Walmart Photo Center

1. Finding The Closest Walmart Photo Center Is Straightforward

If you want to see what kind of images they currently carry, the Walmart website has a search tool that you can use.

It’s not the best way to find a Walmart Photo Center, but it is a way.

Go to the “store locator” link in the menu, type in your zip code, and the website automatically generates the Walmart stores nearby.

If the Photo Center is mentioned and it is indeed a free service, then you will not have to pay for it in order to print.

2. Photo Center Hours Vary From Regular Store Hours

The Walmart Photo Center closes at 8 pm.
You can get help with photo editing software and help with printing at Walmart Photo Center hours.

Photo Center hours vary based on location, so you gotta check with your local store to see when they are open.

You can identify the hours of operation by using the store locator.

3. You Can Print Photos In-Store At Walmart

You can upload photos to a kiosk at the Walmart store to make prints for yourself or to give to friends and family.

Walmart has a new feature that lets you upload pictures from your phone, SD card, or a jump drive.

The printer can print your photos within minutes so you don’t have to worry about long wait times.

4. There Are Several Same-Day Printing Options

By using the Photo Center’s “Mobile” tab, you can print photos from nearly any device, including your smartphone.

still select to pick up your order the same day. In most cases where
this is not possible, you’ll still be notified in the order email
that it’ll be ready to be picked up.

For example, if you want to print Walmart receipts in the same day, you can do that.

If you make a purchase online, you can pick it up on your way to work, or while commuting to another store.

Customers can use Walmart’s personal photo printing machines to add their unique photos directly to a Walmart made to order blanket.
