PictureMate 500 Professional Quality Prints Whenever You Want Them, Wherever You Are • Beautiful photographs – using Epson’s pigment-based ink, create photographs that capture your memories in vibrant, true-to-life colour • Ease-of-use – simple, step-by-step photo printing. All the control you need and with or without a PC • Affordable prints – all the quality of professional photo lab prints at a comparable price • Durability – glossy 4x6-inch photos resistant to damage from light, water and airborne contaminants* Epson has just made photo printing easier than ever before with the release of the Epson PictureMate 500 portable photo printer – the perfect printer for professional photo prints anywhere, anytime. Beautiful Photo Quality Easy Connection With a maximum resolution of 5760 Optimised dpi (when connected to the PC) using Resolution Performance Management (RPM) technology, the Epson PictureMate 500 can produce ink droplets as small as 3pl. Playing a major part in the printer’s professional quality print capabilities is its six-colour (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Photo Black, Red, Blue) pigment ink system, which delivers extremely smooth colour gradation and beautiful skin tones. The Epson PictureMate 500 incorporates a wealth of features designed to make printing images from cameras, computers and other devices simple, straightforward and fast. With support for all major memory card formats currently available, all that’s required is to insert the memory card / stick into the appropriate slot, followed by a single press of the built-in Print button. Your image files can then be viewed using the printer’s 2.4-inch colour LCD screen and printed when and where you want them. Building even further on the Epson PictureMate 500’s professional quality photo printing is its ability to produce beautiful True BorderFree™** edge-to-edge or classic border photos using a variety of tonal effects, such as black-and-white or sepia. BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW RED You can even access your photographs direct from PictBridge and USB Direct Print-enabled cameras or you can attach the optional Bluetooth Photo Print Adapter and connect wireless devices such as a mobile phone, PDA or notebook computer. For direct-to-PC connections, the Epson PictureMate 500 features broad support for Windows® and Macintosh® operating systems. BLUE PictureMate uses six-colour high-quality inks to deliver lab-quality photos. Optional Bluetooth Photo Print Adaptor Memory Cards Affordability and Choice Durable Printing Portability Power With the Epson PictureMate 500, creating beautiful photo prints is more than quick and easy – it’s incredibly affordable. In stark contrast to a traditional photo lab that prints the entire roll of film, it’s your choice which photos and quantities are printed. Drink spills and sticky fingers need no longer have a devastating effect on your photos. With its pigment ink system, the Epson PictureMate 500 has been designed to print photographs that have high levels of resistance to water and smudging – photographs that can withstand the rigours of constant handling and exposure to moisture. Your photos will also retain their vibrant colours for generations to come, remaining resistant to the damaging effects of light for over 104* years; and even longer when displayed in a glass frame or kept in photo albums. Definitely one of the Epson PictureMate 500’s great features is its true portability. By taking advantage of the option to use a compatible, rechargeable Li-Ion battery (not included), the Epson PictureMate 500 can provide you with on-the-spot beautifully printed photographs, whether you’re sitting in your loungeroom, holidaying in a houseboat or even camping in the bush. Another great feature of the Epson PictureMate 500 is its specially designed PicturePack, which includes a six-colour photo cartridge and a pack of Genuine Epson 4x6-inch PictureMate Photo Paper. A helpful and economical starting point for your Epson PictureMate 500 photo printing. PC-Free Layout Selection Creativity On-Demand For creating prints at the touch of a button, the Epson PictureMate 500 features a high performance and bright 2.4-inch LCD screen and very intuitive control panel, which lets you select the best options for your print without being connected to a PC. By using the screen and control panel, you can select from a variety of print layouts, such as Classic Border, BorderFree, Index (20), Double Printing, Half Page and Photo ID. With its in-built Print Image Framer (PIF) software, the Epson PictureMate 500 lets you add a creative touch to your photo prints simply by selecting from a range of frames, including 16 Disney character frames. For even greater creativity, the Epson PictureMate 500 is bundled with the Epson Creativity Suite# software, which features Epson’s Easy Photo Print, Darkroom Print and File Manager applications – perfect for everything from managing your image files to creating original decorative frames and special effects. Adding even further to the PC-free flexibility of the Epson PictureMate 500 is the ability to zoom in on a particular area of a photo displayed on the LCD screen and print just that area without cropping the original image. #(Creativity Suite can only be accessed when the software is installed on a PC) Decorative Frames Classic Border (DISNEY Based on “Winnie the Pooh” works, by A.A.
