I took an SD card, but flash drives and other media devices will work too.

After reading what you said about sheen, I had to look at my photos to see
if there was a different sheen for different colors. There isn't. It's all
shiny on the gloss paper. Photos print out well on regular paper too.

The shiny photos have little raised specks on them and I don't know if
that's from air bubbles or dust, which is prevalent in my home. It's only
noticeable when I look close at the photos, though.

HP uses Vivera inks. There's one black and six colors.
