photo printer

looking to get one for a family member out of country. So I might be their only source for ink catridges.

So anyone have recommend one that they used, don't have to be new. I would like one where the ink lasts for more than 20 pictures.

Get a dye-sublimation printer. The ink doesn't dry out and you know exactly how many prints you'll be getting from a media pack. Plus the prints are generally nicer than inkjet prints from lower end machines. They have some smaller printers on the market now that are fairly nice but most likely will only be for 4x6 prints if you're looking at the low end of pricing.

Some printers, commonly known as network printers, have built-in network interfaces, typically wireless and/or Ethernet based, and can serve as a hard copy device for any user on the network. Individual printers are often designed to support both local and network connected users at the same time. In addition, a few modern printers can directly interface to electronic media such as memory cards, or to image capture devices such as digital cameras, scanners; some printers are combined with a scanners and/or fax machines in a single unit, and can function as photocopiers. Printers that include non-printing features are sometimes called multifunction printers (MFP), multi-function devices (MFD), or all-in-one (AIO) printers. Most MFPs include printing, scanning, and copying among their many features.
Cool! I was wondering what a printer was!
