why bother? They will produce a better product than a low cost printer.
I have been considering the purchase of a dedicated photo printer for some time, specifically for printing my 4x6 digital photos. Use will be for printing family photos and the occasional vacation memories. Amateur quality is sufficient; I don't inspect my photos with a magnifying glass.
My primary printer is an 800-series Lexmark. The last large photo printing job involved images of our UK vacation back in 2001.
I am concerned with only occasional use of the photo printer and the drying of the print heads from lack of use.
Is this still a problem; should I continue to use the Lexmark, or are the current crop of photo printers (Canon IPs, Epson PictureMates, or HPs) able to handle this problem?
