Default Photo printing question for R1800 owners

Hi all

A girl at work wants me to print her some photos, they are quite large and she wants quite a few, so im going to charge her. I dont want to make a profit and she has already brought all the gloss photo paper and things, i just want to make enough to cover the cost of all the ink that i will be using.
I have no idea how much I will go through as ive just brought the printer so if someone could let me know a rough sort of estimation.
I am still using OEM durabright ink and will be printing on the photo setting (not best photo)
How much wouls say 20 full color A4 photos take in ink, i know there are a lot of variable and some colours will use more than others but im just trying to get a very basic figure.
Anyone know for example how many full A4 prints you would get from all new cartridges?
Thanks for the help

Unfortunately it of course all varies.
The Epson drivers should display the ink levels. Click on the printer icon in your system tray, then click on the printer name (Epson R1800 or whatever). This will pop up the dialog showing its status and ink levels. Record them all before you start the job, record them all when you finish.
