    I made the mistake of printing a photo of a person on tone on tone white, the persons face was all dots like they had some kind of disease....live and learn. Might have been cool on a landscape...

    Yes to both. I did a quilt for a friend. He wanted the pictures to come out looking gold. I found a fabric that was the shade he wanted. I treated it with Bubble Jet set and printed it on an HP printer.

    To feed the fabric through the printer, I cut the fabric to be slightly smaller than 8 1/2 by 11. Then lightly sprayed the back of the fabric with repositionable basting spray. I made sure to only spray around the edges. I mounted the fabric onto a sheet of paper and fed it into the printer. It worked like a charm.

    For your fabric selection, be sure the background print doesn't interfere with the picture. The first fabric we picked made the person in the photo look like she had acne. oops!

    Bubble Jet/Freezer paper

    This is a good tutorial for the Bubble Jet method of using freezer paper on your fabric.
