Default need a printer for printing pics

My wife's cousin wants a new printer for printing pics and her mother doesn't know which one to get. I told her,i would ask you guys. They also need it as a basic printer,since it will be for the family. My wife's cousin just uses the computer more than anyone else does,and she does alot of pics. thanks

A printer that prints pictures!


Sorry, couldnt resist.


I like Canons myself. TBH Aslong as your not talking top quality photo stuff, anything half decent should give you nice results. I must admit the biggest concern for me when buying a printer has always been the cost of running it, I'd suggest a google or two to guage some prices and going from there.

All printers today can print photos. You just have to go buy photo paper to get that glossy professional look, otherwise, normal paper will look pretty good too. I suggest the HP printers. They're affordable, yet good quality:

HP Deskjet 5740 C9016A 23 ppm 4800 x 1200 dpi InkJet Personal Color Printer - Retail

A Canon IP3000 would do it

They all look good, but I'd go with the IP 6220D for better quality
