Summer holidays are done and we’ve a lot of pictures to sort through. In fact, there are so many gathering dust on memory cards that we at MSN Tech decided to come up with some advice on what do with your family photos. It’s nice and simple to send them off to an online print shop but what if you want to do it yourself at home? Yes, that’s right, you need one of the best photo printers that money can buy. Epson has just announced a volley of three good ones to choose from but there are other company fish in the printing pond.The big trick with choosing a photo printer that’s right for you is, firstly, working out if you need this machine to print anything else. There are standalone devices or those that will print office documents as well as scan and copy too. Other considerations are the size of photographic print that you’re after. Some will do up to A3 and some no more than the standard 6 x 4. Fortunately, we’ve chosen a bit of everything for our best photo printers collection. Now, it’s over to you.Please click on the image above to view the rest of the story(The cost per photo given for each printer is an approximation based on the production of a 6 x 4-inch print and also includes the price of each manufacturer’s standard photo quality paper of the same size. Figures are based on estimates from product data sheets and will vary in practice depending upon what kinds of photos you mostly produce.)

It does also mean a lot of refills to bear in mind. Nonetheless, the theory is that you can get more accurate colours on your home-printed photographs. That’s exactly what Canon offers with its Pixma range and the Canon Pixma MG7150 model is the most current all-in-one home solution for all of your printing needs; so that’s photos, normal documents, scanning and copying too.There’s a 3.5-inch touchscreen, to get your images bordered and cropped just right before you pull the trigger, plus a memory card reader and optical disc slot for printing straight from SD, CD or DVD. It’s also Wi-Fi-enabled and that means printing direct from tablets, laptops, smartphones and even from Facebook and other cloud image sources too.

Like the Canon Pixma in the previous slide, it’s an all-in-one, 6-ink, Wi-Fi-enabled device with touchscreen control that’ll do your document printing as well as any scanning and copying you need too. What’s nice is that there’s two loading trays so that you don’t have to keep switching between photo and plain papers depending upon what you want this inkjet machine to do for you.It comes in a few quid less than the Pimxa MG7150 and won't cost you so much per photo print either. There's also the Epson Creative Print app to help you design your own greetings cards and stationery too.  Check the latest prices with Bing.topEpson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Epson Expression Premium XP-610 - 3(©Epson)Canon Selphy CP900Of course, not everyone’s interested in churning out documents and scanning in pages and if it’s purely photos, photos and more photos that you’re after, then Canon has the answer with the Canon Selphy CP900. Weighing in at under 1kg and measuring 12.7 x 17.8 x 6 cm, one of the major bonuses of this machine is that it’s not going to hog your desk. In fact, it folds away very nicely ready to be stashed in the cupboard when you don’t need it.At the same time, you still get lab quality photo prints in all sorts of shapes and sizes and all the Wi-Fi connectivity to allow you to print from just about any device you can name - including the camera from which you took your shot. Finally, the auto image correction system and other on-printer picture enhancement and editing options are a treat to use. Not bad at all given it’s half the cost of most on this list and there’s only one ink cartridge to worry about.

All the same, the HP Officejet 7110 Wide Format does have a handy feature up its spec sheet sleeve that will be of interest to anyone who likes to go large with their pictures.Wide Format refers to the fact that this unit can print photos and other documents up to an A3 size and, at £130, you’re not paying an awful lot for the privilege. Naturally, there’s still Wi-Fi but there’s neither a big touchscreen nor any copying or scanning functions. What this one is about is big photos and low print costs.

It’s the first 6-colour, all-in-one printer on the market that can go to A3 size pictures. For those that don’t yet speak printer, that means more inks, better quality and the ability to use the XP950 for all your office documents, scanning and copying needs.Naturally, there’s all the Wi-Fi-connected and media-reading features, as well as two separate paper trays, but it’s the top notch photo printing results that make it stand out from the crowd. Pricey but but good money if you’re planning on using it a fair bit.

It won’t print office documents, it can’t manage big pictures and sticking the results into a photo album is a bit of a no-no too. But, what you get here is nostalgia value and portability, and you get them in spades.It’s a 181g device that’s designed to print direct from your smartphone or tablet over Bluetooth. You can also plug it into your PC or Mac with a USB cable if you want to print from a computer too. Best of all, it uses the classic look 3x4 Polaroid instant paper with the white border that you can write on if you wish, and you’ll never need to buy an ink cartridge again.

There’s nine cartridges inside to help get the tones of your pictures absolutely spot on plus all the connected and convenience features you’d hope for.Like the HP Officejet 7110 Wide Format though, this really is a specialised, professional-quality photo printing machine. So, don’t expect any scanning, faxing or copying functions. Instead, prepare for the thrill of bang on picture prints every time you use it.

In many cases, the trap is to sell you a £30 machine and then charge the Earth in cartridges, but a rather nice sweet spot for those at the budget end is the HP Photosmart 5520.There’s still a touchscreen, Android app and AirPrint support - for those looking to print straight from smartphones - and Wi-Fi to make all this possible. What really stands out though, is that the Photosmart 5520 has some of the best quality photo prints out there and generally knocks the socks off anything else in the sub-€100 bracket.

Forget about the nonsense of connecting your camera to your printer and take a trip to the past with Polaroid - but with a twist of the present thrown in. The Polaroid Z2300 is something of a last hurrah for the Instamatic camera.It’s far smaller than all the older Polaroid machines and this retro-badged snapper houses a 10MP image sensor which the in-built Zink printer can then turn into a 2 x 3-inch photograph that you can hand out to your buddies wherever you are. Quality isn’t great but it’s certainly a unique device in this day and age. Not for the purists, but plenty of fun.
