    I have an all-in-one hp v40 printer. If I try printing photos using the proper 8x10 photo papers will it give good pictures that I can put into a frame? The printing program I will be using is "PRINT WIZARD" a built in feature in XP.

    It really depends on the original image and it's resolution. Also, if image is smaller than 8X10 and you strech it to fit it will lose some quality.

    For people just starting out using the manufacturer paper and ink is probably best... that being said...

    All in one printers don't do the best job on any one thing... ie: the name...

    The other major item is the quality of the photo... crummy photo = crummy print no matter the printer or paper...

    I received the picture via e-mail. It's a picture of a place I visited in Europe that someone sent me while on a current visit. I wanted to print it frm my e-mail and frame it.

    Again... it depends on the file size as well as the quality of the original... How big is the file that was sent to you?

    As a rule, email size pictures will not do very well at 8x10 but your idea of good/great could be much different than mine

    If you want it to look the best you can get it, I'd suggest taking it to a photo shop and getting them to print it for you... starts from aroun 40 cents for a standard size photo, and they can quickly tell you whether the resolution is good enough for larger printing if you don't have a clue about these things. :)
