Tips for printing quality photos

Use HP photo paper: HP photo papers are optimized for use with inkjet printers and provide quality prints for craft projects or framing.

Take high-resolution photos: Higher resolution photographs result in clearer, more vibrant prints.

Edit photos before printing: Before printing, use photo editing tools to improve colors, brightness, contrast, and any other appearance settings.

Check the computer display: If your computer monitor displays colors inaccurately, printed photo quality might be unsatisfactory. Try changing to the monitor's default color settings or use a calibration tool to confirm the color accuracy.

Use Best or Max DPI quality in print settings: Higher print quality settings provide the best results.
