Well, that didn’t take long! Sorry to any interested members who haven’t managed to see the original post but the printer has already found a new home, and is still within our membership.

all the best,


Epson R1800 Printer

Good morning all,

I have an Epson R1800 printer looking for a good home. Completely FREE, it just requires you to collect. It is on the large size and connects by a USB lead, so you’ll need room next to your computer. About 30in,(sorry I can only deal in old money), should cover it.

It uses two black inks, five colours and a gloss optimiser, though this one has a CISS fitted, so no expensive replacement cartridge costs. The present set has about a half set of ink left,(that will be a lot of photos). When that runs out you can either buy more ink or install the new Perma-Jet CISS kit I that,if wanted, I also have ready to go with the printer. Don’t worry about ink quality as these inks are equal to Epson’s own. There is a disc for drivers etc but these can always be downloaded from the net if required.

If you want this printer get in touch, either by showing your interest via this site and speaking with me next club meeting or email Clive and I’m sure he will gladly pass on your message. If it isn’t wanted by a club member I shall give it a fortnight then post it on Freecycle etc.




It seems Adobe are going to hold photographers to ransom. The next version of CS will only be available on Cloud. This will mean subscription and no facility to buy outright. No matter what excuse Adobe give it is obvious what this means. If you have an already released version of Photoshop then that’s the version you stay with unless you sign on for Cloud membership when it starts. For now Elements and Lightroom are not affected but for how long will that be the case?

A Moment in Time

I came across this by accident and it caught my imagination, it may do the same for you. It is one moment on one day across the World. The web site and organisation is still being constructed but there is a temporary site  at http://aday.org/  . Should be worth joining in.
