For most people, printing picture using regular printer ink is not a good option. Oftentimes, the print quality is not at par and it can be tedious for you to work around the printer settings in order to get the quality that you want. In most cases, the user blames the printer, the paper or the quality of the original photograph for the poor print quality.
Little do people know that sometimes, the ink cartridge or the type of printer ink being used can affect the quality of the photo prints. But this should not be such a big concern since it is possible to get high quality photo prints using regular printer ink. All you need is the right configuration for both your printer and the ink cartridge.
Yes, we know that printing high quality photo prints using regular printer ink frequently results to poor quality photos but you can actually look into the configuration options for your printer. You can access this through the Control Panel. Simply set the print quality to high if you want to get better quality prints. This will improve your print quality and can most likely give you the desired print quality even if you are not using premium photo ink.
Another possible option to get good quality photo prints with regular printer ink is to use special photo paper. The type of paper can already guarantee to give you higher quality printed images. Special photo paper is also recommended for use with regular printer ink or with premium photo ink.
So you see, you do not actually need to buy premium photo ink. It may or may not be worth it to buy this.
