there's the dot-matrix and the dye. The dye one are like regular photograph. Great looking but more expensive per print. The difference between the other 2 dot matrix is the number of colors to make the print (which means more shade).
Almost forget; there's laser printer...can't make any comment about that (never own/use one).
I'm thinking about buying a new printer. In the stores they have "home and office" printers and "photo" printers. Do photo printers provide better quality when printing out photos? Is the quality difference enough that if most of my printing is photos that I should choose it over the home and offic printer? Thanks.
