The best printout quality you will get with the HPLIP driver, provided by HP (compatible to the HP DeskJet 6500 Series), especially the 1200-dpi high resolution mode gives excellent photo quality (the rendered bitmap is 1200x1200 dpi, but the printer hardware does an interpolation then and prints with the printer's highest resolution). Also the Gimp-Print driver is reported to work (Model setting: "pcl-900").
For basic printing functionality use the HPIJS driver . For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).
When used with HP's HPLIP driver, this printer auto-detects the paper type and ink cartridge type and does appropriate dithering and colour adjustment internally, controlled by the hardware. So when Ghostscript with the HPLIP driver only renders the image with 300 or 600 dpi, higher resolutions are used for the internal dithering. So if you insert photo paper, the printer will print in photo quality, no paper type choice in the driver's options is needed. There is also a special high resolution mode where the image is rendered in 1200 dpi and interpolated to 4800x1200 dpi by the hardware, without paper detection, intended for photo paper only.
Current border-less (full bleed) support is 4-sided for paper sizes Oufuku-Hagaki or smaller.
