I know many of you print your own pictures. I am looking at getting a new printer- one that can print pictures. What printer do you have and do you recommend it? Thank you!

I love my printer!!!! It was the best gift my DH could've given me....well that year at least!

Mine is a simple HP Photosmart 8250. I got it just over 2 years ago. It is simple to figure out, simple to install the ink cartridges and more. It can print up to 9x12 and has a seperate 'photo tray' for 4x6. I would recommend using the HP photo paper in it for the best results. I had a pack of cheap paper that I thought I'd use up and the pics were not as good color-wise. They faded fast! Also, I tend to buy the value pack of ink refills which always come with 150 4x6 sheets in it.

It's not a very expensive printer (now) so yes, I highly recommend it.

I have an HP All In One. It'll print from memory cards, slides, negitive and scans. I've had it for a number of years. It's also WiFi so Rich or the kids can print from their computers

I have never tried a photo printer for a few years. I had tried them before and was very disappointed. I want a photo printer that will print my photos like the photo lab at Walmart. LOL! Any suggestions?

I think it really has to do with the paper quality. Once you have a decent printer, it's the paper you use that counts. You can't tell which was printed where when I use good paper in my printer. Since I've been scrapping old pics of Kaylee...many of which we 35mm pics/real film...I've had my DH scan them for me and then I'll print them out to scrap with rather than use the original photo. A few times now I've had to flip the photo over to check which was the one I printed out.
