Sorry for the late reply, Jeff. I hav found that by letting a
profesional print shop print my photos, they come out better
_and_cheaper_ than printing them at home. The ink for my HP OfficeJet
is so expensive that paying a printer 4 shekels (about 0.80 Euro) is
very much worth it. And the quality difference is visible, too.
