Re: How happy am I with DIY photo printing?

I know its an old post but...
More than happy with my home prints - though I'm not in the habit of printing all my holiday snaps. My albums are maintained on my computer (and numerous back ups).

Mostly I print a few pictures each month for display in frames at A4 and A3 size using a Canon Pro 100 with Canon ink. Usually run a few test shots on 6x4 to check tones etc. I replace with new images every month.

Occasionally print a batch on 6x4 to post to Father in law (non techy)
My wife is not allowed to use the canon - for her scrap book needs she uses mu HP5520 with cheap compatible ink (despite HP protestations)

I have used on line services but only for calendars and the odd presentation photo book - Boots provide a reasonable service for both of these. Did also use an online postcard service while on holiday uploading my own snaps for the cards.
