      • At least one for color and one for B&W

      • This is where they really burn you
      • A black ink cartridge that is rated to print 833 pages costs about $30 (3.6¢/page)
      • Color cartridges that will print roughly 450 photos cost about $35 (11.4¢/page)
      • PC Magazine estimates that for the typical output of a home-based printer (mixed text and images), the ink cost is about 9.5¢ per page
      Ink Cost
    • Print Your Pictures
      • It is possible to save substantial money by buying off-brand ink cartridges or refilled cartridges, or by refilling them yourself
      • However, this typically voids the manufacturer’s warranty on the printer
      Ink Cost
    • Print Your Pictures
      • Glossy or matte photo paper can cost $1.00 or more per sheet
      • It is always best to buy the brand of paper recommended by the manufacturer of your printer
      You Must Also Consider the Paper Cost
    • A Printing Tip
      • Take your storage device to Wal-Mart, CVS, Ritz Camera and many other locations to use their printing machine to make prints
      • It is cheaper that way (about 17 cents for a 4x6 print)
      • And the quality is at least as good as you could produce with a $300 dye sublimation printer
    • Email Your Pictures
      • Attach them to ordinary messages
      • This may slow down the transmission process
      • It’s usually a good idea to re-size the pictures first. 600 x 480 pixels is an optimal size for photos you plan to email (Consider using www.resizr.com )
      • There are some incompatibility issues with AOL
    • Share Your Pictures on the Web

        • Pictures of my daughter from 1958 to 1963
        • Pictures of all the pets I’ve ever had

    • Editing and Displaying Digital Photos
      • Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
