Photo Printer

Last night we needed to print photos for our son’s project. We currently have a color laser which is great for printing lots of text documents with some graphics, but the Xerox Phaser 6130n is NOT a photo printer.

I’m looking for a printer that can print decent photos nothing perfect, if
I want better photos I can order them online from a photo place on real photo paper. But I have a laundry list of requirements.


  • Must work with Linux specifically Fedora
  • Must work with Mac OS X
  • Network capable (prefer hardwired no need for wireless)
  • Prefer ink tanks over cartridges, like my Canon S750.
  • Must have separate tanks for colors

Here’s an example of the Canon ink tank. It’s pretty cheap and doesn’t need a new print head. This was great but the Canon S750 I have has very little
driver support for either Linux or Mac and doesn’t print very well anymore.
