I swear by zenfolio. Takes a couple days but they do a fine job at a reasonable enough price that I can make a few bucks per photo when I sell prints.

What is this “print” thing of which you speak? You put paper on the screen?

Now that’s pretty cool. Are those axillary ink tanks somehow pressurized or something?

I’m still using my old Epson Stylus 1280, and it does a bang up job with my B3 (14X19) prints.

The blue tape is particularly stylish. : )

Thanks for the information. I do photo restoration customers via computer and have to do a lot of color checks before a final print. Can get very expensive!

I have a similar setup I bought from a company in Australia.

It works great.

Money is not the only savings. Time, lots of time and hassle are also saved in addition to money.

I've got a ton of color print negatives that I'd like to make new prints from. (Ex-wife got all of the family photos. I made sure to get the negatives.)

I'd like to be able to preview the positives. Not all of the photos are worth re-printing. I'd want decent quality prints, too. Anybody know the best way to do that at home?

Great, more bird pictures … thanks. Although I don’t recognize the species, I will enjoy them nonetheless. ;-)

Jeez i had to read all the comments twice to figure out what you are talking about.
I am still confused why do you need a second supply of ink, when the first one runs out can you just change it?

You should someday think about upgrading to an HP DesignJet with 12 ink cartridges. 4 shades of black and 8 different colors. It gives very accurate red hues.

I am sitting here looking at my HP Ps7450(it was a demo model at 60% off)that I used to make 8 massive family photo albums a couple of Christmases ago and I am jealous(yes, I covet thou printer). I tried off brand photo paper and ended up with HP Premium Photo paper because the colors stayed truer. It upped the cost, but, if you factor in the cost of the printer I figured I squeezed every cent out of the project. I know that throw away things is not P.C., but, it worked for me.

Been down the printing road for a while, and here's my 2 cents. For the price of the printer, it might not be that big a deal, but aftermarket inks sometimes have problems. They sometimes clog the holes of the printer. They may be of a different type which does not work with the paper. These inks frequently change color over time. Most printing companies, particularly Epson and Canon, which compete for the high end market, design their papers to work specifically with their inks. Because I sell almost everything I print, I went with an Epson 2200. It cost something like $700 new, but has worked for over five years with no problems. It has a pigment based ink that lasts significantly longer than the dye based inks. For any volume printing, I usually use an online store. In Texas, I use Precision Camera out of Austin. The professional printers like them are more consistent than the outlets. I almost always print on a photo luster or matte paper, rather than a glossy. The glossy papers don't hold the ink as well and the dye changes color more quickly. They're particularly problematic with reds. For black and white prints, I always use matte papers. Coated papers tend to go blue on black and white prints, although the newer generations of printers have supposedly fixed this. Prints on matte papers are very fragile to the touch, but hold their color well over a long period of time.

Fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

BTW, I have a HP Photosmart C6280 All in One. How much does it differ from yours?

I’m curious and uninformed, so I appreciate this thread. A friend recently noted that Kodak printers are being marketed as having much lower per-page costs than H-P and others— does anyone here have experience or opinions on their recent products?
