There are various types of personal photo printers. They can be either black and white or color printers. Color inkjet printers are the most commonly used personal photo printers. Inkjet printers spray small ink drops on the paper to create a print of the picture. Dye sublimation printers are also used, but they are not as popular as inkjet printers. Dye sublimation printers use dyes to create a print on paper. Most color inkjet and dye sublimation printers can produce near-photographic quality prints on special print paper. Near-photographic quality means that the pictures do not have the very fine detail of pictures taken by using a traditional camera. However, this difference can be seen only by a professional.
