How Do I Print the Best Photos?
Posted by on
To produce high quality prints of your favorite photos, you will get the best results if you use the correct paper specifically suited to the project and compatible ink cartridges.
Quality equipment & supplies plays a role in the quality of the photo you will ultimately print as will the photo paper you use. If you are in the process of purchasing a printer and just aren’t sure which one to choose you should first determine the type of printing you will do most often as this will help you narrow down the printer you will ultimately invest in.
If you’ve decided that most of your in-home printing projects will involve graphics or photographs then choosing a printer that specializes on that aspect of printing is ideal. An inkjet printer is considered a great choice for all-around printing projects including high quality photo printing. However, laser printers are another option but are usually used for document printing. An inkjet printer is better equipped to blend color which makes it more suited for photo quality printing.
Look for the dpi of the printer you’re purchasing (dpi means dots per inch) and the higher the dpi, the higher the print resolution. Once you’ve purchased your printer, you’ll want to make sure all the settings are right for the print job you want to complete and make sure that you have an ample supply of replacement printer ink. There is nothing more frustrating than running out of printer ink during the middle of a project. Printer paper for photographs can be found in many styles, textures, colors and finishes (matte, glossy, high- or low-gloss) and more. Choosing the paper for your printing project will help assure you receive the final outcome you’re imagining. Take time to experiment on a couple of different styles if you’re unsure.
Taking time to plan and purchase the correct supplies for the job will help assure the final outcomes are amazing!
