Buyers' guide: top 5 photo printers and frames

Perfect gifts for your friends and family

PC Advisor's guide to the best photo printers and digital photo frames on the market.

Digital cameras have revolutionised photography. Being able to instantly review snaps and discard any you don't like has an obvious appeal - but, because digital images are so easy to share over email and the web, few end up being printed out.

Printing photos is simple. Dedicated printers, such as those we recommend here, don't even require a PC. You can access images directly from your camera's memory card, then choose and edit snaps via an LCD screen before pressing Print. Effects can often be added too.

If you'd sooner enjoy a slideshow of your photos, a digital photo frame may suit you better. These accept specific types of media card, so check before you buy. For Best Buy products in six great categories, visit PC Advisor's Christmas 2008 Buyers' Guide.
