Chapter 12. Picture-Perfect Digital Phot... > Putting Your Pictures on Paper

Putting Your Pictures on Paper

Digital pictures are great for e-mail, but how do you show them off when you run into a friend at the market or the mall? With an inexpensive color printer and some high-quality paper, you can turn out good-looking images that are suitable for framing (or for carrying in your wallet). With the help of a professional photo-finishing service, you can turn high-resolution photos into eye-popping museum-quality prints.

Printing digital photos on a color printer isn’t that different from printing any document on any printer. The unique challenge with color printers, however, is to keep costs down by making the most efficient use possible of expensive color ink and glossy photo-finishing paper. Windows XP can help. When you send a digital photo to your printer, Windows offers a handy wizard that lets you choose exactly which size image you want and squeeze as many pictures as possible onto that expensive paper.
