Default Photo looks better than print.

The photograph looks better than the printed photograph. Here are the examples.

The original is the first image.

The printing is done wirelessly.

The printer is a Epson EcoTank ET 2550.

That goes to show that the photo has a higher pixel pitch than the printer.

Appreciate the reply. Will look into getting a higher resolution printer.


What resolution should I look for in a printer?

Here is my printers specifications.

What you need is a photo printer.

I purchased a photo printer. This a Canon PIXMA MG3620. The thing is the printer is supposed to print without borders. Well the printer prints borders.

I read in the user guide something about settings using a computer. My idea is to rint photographs from my ipad.

If i change the settings for the printer to print without boarders will the printer do that when printing from iPad? Or just from printing from computer?

Is the settings from the software installed on PC? It would work only in Windows.

If it's on board the printer it should work both ways.

Beats me. There has to be a setting that you can turn it off.

You might try finding an iOS or iPad board to ask about changing the print settings.

Are there any printers that will print all photos borderless wether the photographs are from a iPhone or iPad or computer?

They all do that. Borders are an option and found in the menu. The only way you're stuck with a border if it's in the picture itself.

This got me thinking. I have a mobile phone with very good camera capabilities and that includes borders of all kinds. Check your phone for that. Maybe then you can turn the darn thing off.
