Printing High Quality Images
We recommend putting your edited pictures on a USB drive and go to town where you can get them printed out commercially. Do-it-yourselfers will need:

  • Inkjet printer
  • Paper (consider using paper matching your brand of printer)
  • Settings (print at the highest photo setting)
  • File Menu > Print
    (click "Properties" to modify settings)
  • Decrease brightness for stronger color (printer properties)
  • Microsoft Photo Editor > Image Menu > Balance

Professional photo processing (local and online)
