OVERVIEW OF PRINTING DIGITAL IMAGES [1] Overview of
Printing Digital Images

Sometimes, you might want to share pictures with friends who do not have a
computer in their homes. To share the pictures, you can either print the
pictures using a personal photo printer or a professional photo printer.

Personal Photo Printers

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.

Professional Photo Printers

Professional photo printers, which are used in print labs, use special
imaging devices to expose regular photo paper. The paper is then developed
by using normal silver photo chemicals. Professional photo printers produce
true-photographic quality prints on paper. Some print labs also use laser
printers, high-end dye sublimation printers, and high-end inkjet printers.
