I bought an Epson Charm a few months ago. I love it, but now that I know I can print from my iPhone with a Selphy 900, I'm very tempted.
What are the options for printing smaller sized photos with the Selphy?
Are any of these options available without using a computer?
Can I use Photosheet to print to the Selphy just like I do with the Charm?

You can print multiple pics without a computer through various iphone apps. Not sure about photosheet. I us picframe.

I use photosheet all the time with my Selphy 800 to make wallet sizes, etc. You are only limited by the size of the paper. When you select 4x6, it automatically gives you all the options. When you click on print, just send it to the Selphy printer. Not sure how it would work from the iPhone, the Selphy has its own software too which gives you some options. I would think it would work from an app, you just send it to the printer, but not sure since I don't have the Selphy 900. I'm tempted to upgrade to the 900 for the wifi option but I only bought my other one last Xmas.

I also see that they only have glossy paper.
I don't despise glossy, but I generally prefer matte.
Can anyone compare their glossy to Snapfish's glossy? I know there are different levels of "gloss" out there.

If you put a memory card or USB drive int he selphy you can print multiple pages per sheet. here is the manual for the printer . Starting on Page 20 there is information on printing multiple pictures per sheet. selphy manual

I just bought the Selphy 900 at Best Buy for $69. I love the pic quality. However, Best Buy does not carry the ink/photo paper. Where do you buy yours? Is it expensive?
Loc: UMMM, my scraproom??? :-)

Scrappin3boys, I bought my selphy from best buy this past Sunday and I bought paper from there, too. Interesting, I guess only some stores carry paper. Amazon has it for about $29. I think it was 36.99 at best buy. Hope this helps.

Scrappin3boys-I buy my ink and paper at Amazon. I also found them at Fry's.
DukeFan-I have never ordered from Snapfish but the paper is not very glossy. It's more like a semi-gloss.

I get mine at Staples.com as I use my ink rewards towards the paper purchase,Staples prices may not be as good as elsewhere, but it's less out of pocket for me with rewards.

To answer your question about how they compare to snapfish glossy. I just went and checked and they are pretty much the same. I hope this helps.

Thanks for posting the manual.
I saw that it said sorting about the paper having perforated edges that you have to tear off. Is that the case for the prints that come from this printer?

I have gotten paper/ink at Best Buy online or Amazon. You can also buy from the Canon site where I've seen it on sale too. Best prices I've found were Amazon and BestBuy with free shipping.

However, Best Buy does not carry the ink/photo paper. Where do you buy yours?
They had it at my Best Buy, but not near the photo printers--in the department with the computer printers in the Canon ink area.
