Thanks for posting the article. I print all my photos with my inkjet printer and really can get pricey, so I only print the ones that I think come out good, not all of them. I am wanting to invest in a new printer though as mine is pretty S L O W and I'm very impatient. I have an Epson 777 right now but looking into a faster one.

something that this does not say---Or I may of overlooked it---on most pics---change you resolution to 300ppi in photoshop or another aftermarket program

Another thing to do also is to take your photos and make sure they are sharpened up really good in photoshop or similar product. It can make a ver big difference on how it looks on print. It may look bad on the computer screen but if you do it right it will be crip when printed. Great Article though.

I've wasted god knows how much paper and ink getting the colours to look right on printouts with my Epson 870 - very tedious work not made any easier by the fact that Epson only supplies one custom profile for this printer, and that's for Epson ColorLife paper which they've now discontinued! Independant paper-manufacturer's profiles are available of course, but I prefer to use Epson paper which is readily available in my local shops. Anyhow, things came to a head when my Epson printer blocked up big time. No amount of cleaning (even with solvent cartridges) would clear it. So now I print only 6 x 4 on a kodak easyshare printer hooked up to my PC to print shots taken with my Olympus E-300. They look great (especially skin tones)with little effort at all other than making sure the images are optimised in Photoshop first -- no printer profiles required and no blockages either since the kodak printer uses thermal-transfer not wet ink or dye. If I want any images bigger than 4 x 6 I put them on a cd and pop it into a processing lab. Less time struggling with printing, more time using my camera!

Another point worth mentioning is that when you are printing 4X6's make sure you have your pictures size to a 3:2 ratio so that cropping doesn't occur in the wrong place when printing.

Honestly what is the point of printing inkjet at all?

1) It's expensive
2) The quality is unusable for more then just family snapshots
3) It lasts a fraction of the time of silvered paper prints
etc.

The only advantage is convienence, and it's a small one over emailing your photos to a lab and picking them up in 15 minutes.
