Dulles, Va. — AOL announced today that it would offer a print-at-retail option on its AOL Pictures online service, teaming with drugstore chain Walgreens.

AOL Pictures users can upload photos and have them printed at one of 5,200 Walgreens locations across the United States with turnaround times as low as one hour. Initial print sizes will include 4-inch by 6-inch, 5- by 7-inch and 8- by 10-inch, with additional print size options available later.

Pricing will start at 19 cents for a 4- by 6-inch photo.

Walgreens is AOL’s first retail partner for in-store fulfillment.

AOL will also announce several new features for its imaging service, including personalized Web pages with a “My Pictures” model. The company is also testing a feature to let camera phone users post pictures to their AOL Pictures account directly from their phones. Finally, the company said it would introduce an “Auto Upload” feature that would integrate image uploading directly from digital cameras that support the feature.
