From the New York Times: Why Do-It-Yourself Photo Printing Doesn't Add Up.
Despite the ceaseless efforts of manufacturers to convince consumers that printing at home is fast, convenient and a whole lot of fun, the evidence shows that many people are tuning out the marketing.
Looks like it's cheaper to get your photos printed elsewhere than to do it yourself. And probably a lot less hassle. My printer has been a problem ever since it decided to recalibrate itself. It won't line up all the colors properly. Professionally printed prints for half the price sounds like an easier solution to me.
