I am not on this board very often, but I need advice and hope you all can help.

In the past I have had an Epson 3-1 Photo Printer - Epson Photo Stylus RX 500 printer as well as a Canon MP 800.

My Canon MP 800 was my favorite, but it no longer works. I loved the Easy Print software that came with the printer.

I am still using my Epson Photo Stylus RX 500 for the moment, but it is on it's last leg.

I want a 2 in 1 printer with photo printing capability for a good price. Want to be able to print on regular paper, photo paper and on card stock.

As I research - I am not finding photo editing software programs or printing software programs for photo included.

I am currently using a early version of Microsoft Digital Image - which suits my needs. But I need a software program that lets me select how I want my pictures printer, how many to a page, and how many copies to make. My Canon same with a program called Easy Photo - but it only worked on the Canon printer.

I do own Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 - but have no ever figured it out, so that software sits in a drawer.

While I am hunting for a new printer, I am using my Microsoft Digital Image software to edit the photos and then having Walgreen print them for me, but this isn't convenient when I need an extra copy ASAP and I don't always have the original to copy.

I look forward to any an all suggestions . The more I research, the more confused I get. I do not edit my pictures with my camera - that does not work for me at all.

Thanks for reading my post.

I'd recommend an Epson Artisan printer. I have one and love it.

For printing multiple size photos, try Picasa. It's a free program from Google and is easy to use. You can even create photo collages with it.

Thank you so much for your replay. I will look into Picasa.
