I never had a problem with selecting "maximum quality" when printing photos,
rather than specifying a particular resolution.

Works fine with the HP 8250 and the Canon 9900, I have not invested in a
serious photo printer just yet- I'm waiting to see how the HP B9180, Epson
2400 and Canon Pro ??? printers' comparisons hash out.

Stuff also looks better under glass.
