Photography Tips and Printing Quality Pictures With HP Photosmart 7520 Printer

I had a wonderful opportunity to attend “The Original You” event sponsored by HP Canada, where I learned a lot about photography and creating fabulous prints at home using HP products.
We put our HP Photosmart 7520 printer to the test by printing lots and lots of pictures, as well as many pages of activity and colouring sheets. We can print two-sided, copy, scan to email, fax and access web content with the colour touchscreen and eprint from anywhere using our smart devices. 
During the event professional photographer, Michael Cooper shared some tips for better photography such as
  • See the whole picture.
  • Consider the main object of the picture then see how to highlight it.
  • Perception: Take images from different angles and perspectives. 
Check out the HP Live Photo app that is free, fun and easy mobile app that allows us to share glimpses of our life with friends and family by creating photos from our videos. 

HP says we get what we pay for, as their ink cartridges deliver consistent high-quality output with 100% success rate when use it on the HP paper and photo papers. Years of experience and rigorous testing go into the Original HP inks, so we can get reliable performance. After printing several images at home, I believe that this is true. 
During the event I learned from the HP inkologist that the chemical makeup of the HP inks allow it to perform optimum colour clarity to get brilliant, true-to-life colour, permanence and durability than other inks. The ink is highlighter-friendly, water-resistant prints and minimal colour fading. 
The cartridges are made with recycled content; over 472 million plastic water bottles and old HP cartridges go into the making of new cartridges. Using refill inks on our cartridges becomes a waste of time, energy and money as there will be spotty and inconsistent results, as well as lots of hidden costs. 
When we use the throughly tested Original HP inks on HP paper and photo paper we can maintain our printer and the printed material. Since the ink works right each time we use it, we can spend more time creating and less time dealing with faulty cartridges.
