Selecting the best printers for photos is well worth the effort if you want to do your shots justice – you can end up with a good-looking permanent record of your best work. These days, most people look at their photos on their smartphones or monitors, but sometimes you take a picture that looks good enough to frame and hang on your wall. This is where the best printers for photos below come in. 

While most of the best printers for photos will do a credible job with photography, if you want your snaps to really shine then you need a printer that goes the extra mile. In general, the more you spend on a photo printer, the more (and better quality) inks you'll have to properly reproduce colours. You'll also be able to print larger and on more specialised media. This also goes for the best art printers out there, which we would suggest you check out if you want some gloriously detailed, colourful prints of your favourite art.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
