I am looking for a printer that works wirelessly and does a pretty good job printing photos, not an all-in-one, any suggestions?

How much are you looking to spend?

That is the first question you will need to answer. Epson and Canon both make a few good photo printers that have blue tooth capabilities. I have used blue tooth with the R300 (Newer model is the R340 I think) that prints up to 8.5x11 in size and the bluetooth worked great.

Do you need wireless particularly? I bought a Canon IP4300 and a Kensington powered USB hub. The printer's great.

one thing to note about epsons. the cartridges dont have the print head on them. I have had two Epson printers (with the seperate color catridges), both had several clogging issues. i use the printer normally, so i know its not my usage affecting it.

the HP i have now has been a little workhorse, well worth the 60$. best of all the print cartridge has the head built onto it, so i get a new one every time.

the HP is not wireless, but this was just something i consider everytime i spend 100-300$ on a printer.

just lettin ya know

after looking, out of my own curiousity, they all seem to be bluetooth, which i guess is the same as wireless. i was just thinking it wasnt bluetooth.

most of them appear to be in the 150-250$ price range for BT ones

I prefer Canon and the BT works flawlessly. Of course, the model would depend on how much you want to spend.
