Epson has announced two new models for its PictureMate photo printing range – the PM 240 and PM 280.
Both are standalone printers, similar in specification, but with a CD drive on the PM 280, which allows you to burn images to disc from a memory card or print photos directly from CD. Both feature PhotoEnhance technology, which optimises your image before printing, based on the type of image – skin tones enhanced on portraits, natural colours boosted on landscapes for example. There’s also a 2.5-inch screen, which you can use for some basic editing, such as red-eye removal and cropping. And you can add a range of effects before printing.
Available from October, the PM 240 retails for around £130, with the PM 280 selling for £200.
