Using inkjet printers and ink cartridges for printing photos to display around the home could be one way to create individual artworks.

Ongoing improvements in printer quality mean that it is possible for home users to create their own high-quality images from photos they have taken themselves.

By using printer profiles, users can take steps to ensure the colours that are reproduced by a printer are as close as possible to the colours seen on screen.

The kind of paper used to print on can also have an effect on the finished result – and if people want to display a picture, using dedicated photo paper may be a better option than relying on general purpose paper.

Once a photo has been printed, users can take several steps to extend the life of the picture. For example, ensuring images are displayed out of direct sunlight can help to prevent colours from fading.
