The Easy-PhotoPrint software that comes with it is actually really easy and makes perfect prints without fiddling. You can also go into the preferences of it and chose "Quality Priority" and they look a little bit better and have finer details.

It is a kinda cheesy program but it looks just as good if not better than Photoshop CS/8 and you don't have to fiddle with any settings. Just chose pictures, paper type/size and their layout and that's all there is to it. It is worth a try but I think it only will print JPGs.

Thanks for the tips, I will look into that program.


I have another question:
I took pictures with my Olympus 740 and I got some 4X6 paper.


when printing I can't seem to print all the paper, even with the bordeless option activated there is a border left.

Is this normal or I have to crop the pictures to be 4X6?

Thanks

How much of a border? Is it just one one or two sides, or does it surround the picture?

Easy-PhotoPrint generally will crop the picture to fit the 4x6 aspect ratio so you shouldn't have to do that.

it prints on top and bottom but not on the side...

I guess I will have to crop the picture otr use the 3:2 setting on the camera to take pictures and be able to print without touching it.
