Photo printing is fully supported in the newer 6- and 7-ink models.

A major advantage of using this driver over those supplied by HP is the direct interface between HPIJS and the native CUPS spooler, which allows

Considering what a hassle it is to use the HP-provided drivers, this package is a godsend. Will not work without the gsps package installed first.

A major advantage of using this driver over those supplied by HP is the direct interface between HPIJS and the native CUPS spooler, which allows printing from any printer over any available connection such as USB, AppleTalk, TCP/IP (via LPD and IPP), HP JetDirect, and shared windows printers via SAMBA. Additionally, this driver utilizes the existing Mac OS X USB "backend" and thus does not install any software that might interfere with standard USB operation.
