Do you want it to be able to print regular documents too?
If so, I like my HP 8450. It has the ability to print directly from the memory card, has a dedicated 4x6 photo tray and has excellent color and black and white photo printing all the way up to 8.5x11 borderless.
If you want a photo-only printer that prints out 4x6s only, there are several good ones on the market, but I personally like the Canon models.

I bought the Epson Stylus RX500 all in one printer. A little more expensive than the lower models, around $225. But the quality is great and has the feature to turn old faded photos into good color photos. The best thing I like is it has 6 separate ink tanks so I only have to replace the color that is out. Most cheaper printers have to use a "photo" cartridge that does not come with the printer. Most "photo" cartridges have 4 inks so the 6 ink set up give more color for photos.

Find an Epson Photomate for $100 somewhere.

It's probably more worthwhile to just print your digital pics at wallyworld or some place unless you really need the convenience or speed of doing it at home.

I understand that.

Figure it out, though. $100 + $300 (ink/paper) for 1000 pics. $.40 a pic. That's twice the price of most places that print pictures nowadays, and you don't have to worry about ink and paper problems, plus you'll likely be at one of those places at some point during a week. Most allow for unline upload, so you can upload pics, go shopping the next day and grab your photos. So, is she sure that's what she wants to spend her money on? I don't think, for most folks, photo printers are a worthwhile investment. Look up 'shutterfly' on the fatwallet hot deals forum and see what you can get prints done for through them.

Having said that, I have one I use, though not nearly enough.
