    Love this printer so much I bought a second one! I use it for printing out souvenir 4x6's at events that I photograph. I recently photographed a 200 person golf outing, and printed up a foursome shot for each person. Whats nice is that the ink and paper are sold together.

    Comments about Epson PM225 PictureMate Charm Compact Photo Inkjet Printer:

    I purchased this printer to use as an on-the-spot event photo printer for people who came to me for a picture with a mascot for an NHL team. These photos needed to be printed before the patrons left and that's exactly what this printer delivered. I swapped out one SD card for another when images needed to print, but through trial and error, I discovered that (using a Canon 5D) the printer read the raw files and not the .jpg files that were saved to the card. This lengthened the time considerably with printing, but they still came out very sharp, clear, and didn't smudge one bit. I used the recommended paper with it, too.

        Easy to setup right out of the box. It's small, compact and intuitive. Granted its limited to a max print of 4x6, but for what we were needing it for, it was a good, cost effective solution. After doing some test prints, seems to do as good of a job as something you'd get from a [*]print center, maybe slightly better, but for this price point thats about what i expected. All an All, a good buy if you're needing to bust out 4x6 or less prints.

                  The machine is exactly what I needed. I wanted something that was compact, easy to use and affordable. These are all those things. It was very easy to set up and connect to my computer and camera. I did have to buy the USB connectors separately. I am not thrilled with the color quality of the prints but they are fine for what I need (last minute school photos, crafting projects and such).

                      We use our little PictureMate Charm for our scrapbook projects. We actually pack it up and take it with us on cruises! We take an 8x8 album and scrapbook accessories to create pages of our vacation experiences. The PictureMate gives us several picture print size options so we can be really creative. And we can provide photos taken with newly made friends and give them prints too. And when we get back home, we already have our scrapbook completed and ready to share with friends and family!!
                      The PictureMate Charm is easy to use and prints out quality pictures!
                      We recommend it to many!

                        This little printer is easy to use and perfect if you only need 4x6 prints. It's very simple to use and prints nice vivid and sharp prints.

                          I needed to produce prints to be taken home after a benefit. I shot, put the media card in the printer and produced 4x6 prints within a minute or so. People were very happy with their pictures. I used the gloss paper and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. The printer performed without failure which helped relieve the pressure of shooting celebrities and donors families. It is important that the printing is supervised though. You can't load the printer with 10 or more sheets and walk away and expect to return to 10 prints. On occasion the paper was pulled through with the sheet beneath resulting in a print spanning 2 sheets. We ended up loading each sheet per print.
                          I was told to run prints through the printer regularly to keep the ink in the nozzles from drying out. This results in problematic printing quality which may need manufacture intervention to cure.
                          Operation could not be more simple, just insert media, scroll through your images and push the print button twice to print.
                          This printer is a lot of fun, produces punchy prints as long as your snap is good. There are no features for cropping or adjustment that I found. There may be but I was too rushed between purchase and shoot to fully get to know the product. I also purchased a warranty to ensure at least two years of trouble free printing. Paper and ink are sold together as a single package and you can choose gloss or luster. Luster is more expensive.

                          The Epson PM225 PictureMate Photo Printer is a great buy. This compact printer prints excellent 4X6 prints in record time and with very sharp resolution (provided your original digital file has very good resolution, exposure, good color, etc.). However, you can also fix your photos as it allows for some correction - red eye, enhancement, etc. You can also use it with rechargeable lithium batteries (optional) and take it with you to your next shoot. I definitely recommend it.

                            I had the picturemate pal for some years and loved it! I bought a new camera and the memory stick didnt fit it. I decided to get a new one (the Charm) it doesn't do anything the Pal did, like alot of colorful borders, croping, little pictures you could inlay on your pic, it doesn't do anything more than you can do at a store. I sent it back.
