Print quality is very good with natural and accurate colours printed
without dots. The dye sublimation technique means ink is transferred as a
vapour from the backing film to the paper, so you get a 'continuous tone'
print, very similar to a classic, silver halide photograph.
The printer lays three different colours onto the paper: yellow, magenta
and cyan in that order, and then it lays a clear transparent layer over
the top to protect the printer from light and ozone attack. The cover
layer also gives the print an attractive, glossy coating. Even with only
three-colour prints, black is well reproduced.
