Default fast dry photo prints ?

Before I frame my printed pictures (Epson Photo Stylus Photo 820) is there a quick and safe way to dry photos rather then waiting 24 hours?

I'd say no. Depending on the paper that you printed it on I'd give it at least 72 hours air drying time before putting it behind glass in a frame. On some non-Epson papers that ink almost never dries 100% in less than a couple of days. The first formulation of Kodak photo glossy paper was horrible with Epson ink, it pooled and stayed "tacky" feeling for days. Best results are always with Epson brand paper.

If you must rush-dry then I suggest using a hair dryer set on low temp and held from a conservative distance.

Thanks for the advice Steve. No harm in trying but just thought there might be a majic trick or two. Better be safe than sorry.
I'll wait the 72 hrs if I can. I may mat before that time but deffinately will go the long time before putting up to glass.
