According to a new report from Lyra Research, despite the huge number of images consumers are capturing, photo printing is not growing as rapidly. Consumer digital photo printing continues to shift away from home printing to retail and online outlets. The volume of photo prints ordered online and in-store is increasing, while the volume of photos printed at home remains stagnant. In 2010, the number of prints ordered online (13.5 billion) exceeded the number printed at home (13.4 billion) for the first time.
