I am looking for an edible printer, but I want it to be able to scan photos also. I want to be able to scan a photo, and with a computer program,on my own computer, be able to crop it, add a message, and print it, adjust the size of the photo and print that size, etc...
Any suggestions on a system, program and whatever else that would be needed.
Thanks,
Polly

I talked to kopykake last week and I found out that you can use your same printer that you pint pics and cc recipes on =) It has to be a cannon or Epson ( certain models, kopykake has a list on their web site) I thought the regular ink would contaminate the edible image, but they say it wouldn't. I'm sooooo lucky. The kopykake building is 2 minutes from my house. HTH

Thanks for the info> I think I might get the epson cx7400 as suggested and just buy the ink and program for my computer. That sound cheaper than the hole system. Thanks again Renee, and foxymomma521 I also voted for your cake it is beautiful.

Thanks Polly! I appreciate your votes, but I'm afraid I'm so far behind I'll never catch up! icon_cry.gificon_lol.gif (but at least I can say I tried icon_wink.gif )

nickshalfpint, we have been told for years now that we could NOT use regular ink in our edible image printer, that the printer had to be designated strictly for the edible images and the edible ink.

Have they changed their minds about the ink?
