I bought this printer as a giddy for my mom. My mom lives crafting and taking pictures. She automatically fell in love with this printer and the quality of the pictures is great. She was getting her pictures printed at Walgreens and the quality was really poor. My mom is very happy with her printer and no money is needed for ink. Yes, no English instructions but the app is in English and very easy to use. My mom figured it out all on her own. I'm sure she recommends this printer to everyone in get crafting community.
