    Hello

    Does any one know of software for the Mac that makes it easy to take a photo, add a custom graphic and print it out on a special photo printer.

    It needs to be quick and easy for an exhibition stand.

    Thanks,

    PS i've tried Google but not found anything.

    I think it's really going to depend on the camera you are using. What camera are you going to use?

    Nikon

    It's Nikon DSLR. can't remember the model. I know it works with image capture on a Mac live. So can control the shutter from the Mac.

    We used a Mitsubishi Click unit before but it was not that user friendly and am looking for a software solution so we can just rent or even buy a thermal printer.

    If it works with Image Capture, you can make an Automator action that will add the graphic and print the photo ...

    Cool

    That's good idea. Will have to see what actions I can use.

    Any recommendation for thermal dye printers. I just looked at some Fujifilm ones?

    Thermal dye? As in dye sublimination?

    I used to have a Hi-Touch that made really nice prints.
