Print and Share Photos Easily with Your Own Personal Photo Lab!

Do you take a lot of photos? I sure do! I love my DSLR and how easy it is to share, save and edit my photos instantly. While it may be ideal to share your photos through email, social media and online photo sharing sites with your family and friends, there are benefits to being able to print and share photos at home.

Imagine taking a rare family photo with all your aunts, uncles and cousins at your holiday gathering. Sure, you can tell most `you will post the photos to Facebook and that will be good, but what about Aunt Harriet who does not have a computer and thinks if she tries to use one her identity will be stolen? Wouldn’t it be nice to send Aunt Harriet, Uncle Earl and Aunt Ethel home with that rare group photo? It sure would be, and it can be hassle free!

All you need to do is insert your SD card or use Wi-Fi Direct and print from your smart phone with the Epson PictureMate PM-400 Personal Photo Lab.

This unit was so easy to set up, we inserted the 1 ink cartridge and let it go through a 4 minute set up. Then I inserted my SD card and it was so easy, my 7 and 9-year-old were able to select their favorite photos and print them. The pictures were great quality, the colors vibrant and the image was clear and sharp. Check out our video review below:

 

This compact unit is small on size and big on features! It uses MicroPiezo inkjet technology to create detailed prints at 5760 x 1440 dpi at up to 5 x 7″, ideal for snapshots and family photos. You can also set the layout to print multiple photos to one page. You can use 3.5 x 5″, 4 x 6″, and 5 x 7″ paper, as well as No. 10 envelopes, for producing your most common and convenient photo sizes. It is fast, capable of producing a 4 x 6″ photo in about 36 seconds.

Have a big family? No worries, everyone can go home with a copy without having to reload the printer because it can hold 50 sheets of plain paper and 20 sheets of gloss photo paper. It is versatile and will power up with the conventional power plug included or you can use a USB 2.0 cable to connect to a USB port.

You can do some photo editing directly on the printer like cropping, removing red-eye and more. There is only one ink cartridge to install and the dye based ink is rated to last up to 200 years in album storage. The photos are scratch, water, smudge and fade resistant.

I will be inserting a video review of this printer so you can get an up close and personal look at the unit. While you are waiting, would you like to enter our giveaway for your chance to win one of these awesome units of your own? You can enter by using the widget below. We added the PM-400 to our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide at Mommy Ramblings!
