Just received my PictureMate Charm today and LOVE it. Very easy setup and makes wonderful color pictures. Can't use it with my computer as I have Windows 8 and it is not compatiable with that, but I do not really care. I love to be able to print high quality pictures in my home. I would reccomend this to everyone!

This is the third Epson PictureMate I have owned and have loved all of them. It is a handy way for me to print out the pictures I take on my yearly travels to Europe and those other travels to Australia from time to time. The pictures are always fantastic. The only thing I miss on the latest model I have is that you can no longer crop the pictures which I found to be a wonderful way of correcting some of the mistakes of getting too much in a picture. Would really like to see this feature again in future models.
Excellent On-site Printer

I ordered this specifically for a job which required that I take photos of couples attending a wine tasting event. I needed to have them printed and ready for them before the end of the evening... within a couple of hours. When I researched the printer, I decided to give it a try, but unfortunately, there were none available to me locally to "test drive." So, I ordered one based on Epson's history of producing high-quality printers (I also have a Stylus Photo 1400) and hoped for the best. When it arrived a couple of days in advance of my job, I tested it with an image I thought would approximate my upcoming job and was very pleased. I tested the various ways to use it (printing directly from the SDHC card, directly from the camera, from a laptop) to see which method I would prefer to employ. I decided upon using the laptop since it allowed for fairly quick minimal editing before printing. (It also has a slot for Compact Flash cards, but I didn't test it.) It's not a perfect device, particularly if color correction and lightening/darkening is necessary. The viewing screen is a bit small and doesn't display (as best as I can tell... I have to admit to not reading the entire manual due to my time constraints at the time) the frame number to be printed. As regards the quality of the prints, I was very happy, as was the client and her guests. A warning: the ink pack that is provided only prints about twenty-five prints before running out. I strongly advise buying at least one re-fill cartridge immediately.
The printed photos are ...

The printed photos are wonderful! I love being able to print at home instead of having to go to a store to print. Locating the cartridge/photo pack is another thing however......went to 4 stores today before we were able to get them.

It works great with my IMac. Its very convenient to have this right here at my house instead of going and waiting an hour to get my pictures done somewhere else...I would Definitely recommend this to others!!
