    Hi everyone .

    Some of them is very nice and i would like to develop for display as well as to give friend to keep.

    So now question is how can i do that ?
    i know simply a printer will do the job.

    but just print on normal A4 paper ?
    so thin.........

    i am using HP deskjet 840C.
    where can get those photo paper?

    You can develop at a photo shop. Burn the files onto a CDROM or copy to a zip disk, then bring to the photo shop. Standard Photo charges 35 cents for 4R, plus $5 handling. Most other places charge 50 cents for 4R.

    And yes, this is cheaper than using a printer, because of the cost of the ink. Quality is better, too. You can use the printer for larger prints (eg A4 size) which you want to print and hang on the wall.

    You've got to get those photo papers to get the digital pictures printed from your photo printer. Is HP deskjet a photo printer? If not, you might want to take the photos to the photo shops for printing. Personally, if I have a lot of photos to print, I will take them to the shops. It is very convenient, just give them your cdr/cdrw with the photos in it. And, for best results, you might want to do your own cropping before sending them to the shops.

    my take:

    buy photo paper.

    use photoshop enlarge to A4 at 150 or 300 dpi and USM a bit.

    print.

    wait to finish.

    wait some more.

    wait a bit more.

    nice pic.

    laminate or keep in file to extend ink life...

    You can get a good pack of 100 Letter Sized Kodak Photo Quality paper from Challenger at $88. Not too bad a price to pay for paper of that quality. Economical for making 8 X 10 prints. Price-wise I think its only marginally cheaper than photo labs, consider the ink, paper and also amortizing the printer cost.

    However, the HP 840 is a 4 colour printer. So do not expect the results to be fantastic. The newer 6 colour tank ones are definitely much better.

    the HPs are quite good at tones... thx to the ReT... ahem except the 6xx series...

    photoshop's UnSharpMask is to sharpen the pix when u upscale an image.. use it around half your pixel size (i..e 1600x1200 scale to 3200x2400 the pixel size is actually 4 (2x2))

    if paper can use HR101 by canon... it's photo coating but paper thin, ie not thick card like photopaper..

    is all photo paper suppose to be thin ?

    then printing in shop with CDRW , the result is those the same as when we develop photo old old time type? glossy or rough surface type....thick paper.
    izzit?

    or printer and shop print....use the same kind of paper one...THIN.?
