1. Epson Expression Photo XP-750

£229.99, epson.co.uk

This allows you to print on paper, but also on to suitable CDs and DVDs. And it has an email address so you can print from anywhere in the world.

2. Canon Selphy CP900

£99.99, canon.co.uk

With its compact size and fast printing, the Selphy is a great portable photo-printer. The colour LCD display allows for cropping and it comes with its own battery pack.

3. Canon Pixma MG5450

Internet- and smartphone-ready with a colour display, this offers an impressive 9600dpi printing resolution and it comes with Canon's My Image Garden software.

4. Canon Pixma Pro 100

£469, canon.co.uk

If you're a serious photographer and want to really do your images justice, this is for you. You can print your pictures up to A3 using the rich eight-ink colour system.

5. HP Photosmart 7520

£129, hp.com

If you squint, this chunkily shaped printer looks a bit like the old Polaroid camera. But it does a lot more – printing, scanning, copying, faxing, and your photos will look crisp.

6. HP Photosmart 5520

£69, hp.com

An excellent budget printer designed for home users who want lab-quality photos and mobile printing. It would suit anyone who wants to print snaps without a hefty investment.

7. Epson Expression Premium XP-605

£149.99, epson.co.uk

An excellent all-round printer and reasonably priced; it can print high-quality glossy photos and its features square up well with costlier models.

8. Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer

£99, polaroid.co.uk

Polaroid's "portable photo booth" wirelessly produces old-school prints from your smartphone and, incredibly, doesn't use a drop of ink.

9. Brother MFC-J6910DW

£214, brother.co.uk

Praised by Which? for its "excellent photo prints" and rapid printing and scanning speeds, the wireless technology means this printer could function well in any office or home.

10. VuPoint Photo Cube

£119, vupointsolutions.com

A simple photo printer designed for smartphone users. Simply place your phone in the docking station to print 4x6 photos in seconds. But the photo-print cartridges can be pricey.
