A Full-Size Inkjet Printer Offers More



A full-fledged inkjet printer like the HP Officejet 7000 Wide Format (shown at left) is your best choice if you'd like to print other things besides photos. All of the inkjet models we've tested can print a good photo on photo paper; the quality of their plain-paper printing varies widely, of course.

Though a typical four-ink model (with cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks) can print a good photo on photo paper, you'll get a better range of colors if you choose a model that uses photo inks such as light gray, light cyan, and light magenta. Some inkjets come with a dedicated input tray for loading photo paper. Most likely you'll also want integrated media slots or a PictBridge port to simplify the task of uploading photos for printing.
