    Go for a seven or more ink printer for good photo quality do some research on epson, cannon or hp but stay away from lexmark as they are expensive on ink.

    Personally, I've never liked Epsons very much. The Canons I've used have all been fine, but I've got an HP 5740 since it has better support for Linux. You can swap out a black ink cartridge for three more colours, so that would be handy for photo printing.

    My g/fs dad has a Canon 350D & he prints using a Canon IP5000 that we bought him for his last birthday.

    Picture quality is fantastic, especially using decent photo paper.
