The time taken for a print to dry depends on several factors:

• The amount of ink printed which in turn depends on the density of the image.
• The type of photo paper used.
• The humidity and temperature of the surrounding air.
• The brand of ink and printer.
• The air circulation in the room.

For best results:

• Use the same brand of paper as the printer.
• If you use other brands of paper such as Ilford or Celcast, make sure it is suitable for your printer.
• If you use generic or other brands of paper you may need to test several different types with your printer.
• If using refilled or generic cartridges and the photos dry too slowly, try using genuine cartridges
• Carefully remove the print from the printer once it has finished printing and place it flat in a warm dry environment with good air circulation.
