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.

I thought tat might be the case. Why do printers all print with that annoying border from ipads and iphone?
