The printer supports printing from a variety of mobile devices and memory cards, such as:
Cameras
Mobile phones
PDAs
You can print photographs directly from a digital camera or directly from a memory card, or you can
transfer the photos from the card or camera to your computer and print them from a software application,
such as HP Photo Printing Software. Also, you can print photos directly from a PictBridge-compatible
camera.
If your digital camera uses a Type I CompactFlash™ (CF) card, SD card, or MMC, you can insert the card
into the printer to print your photos. Your camera must support Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) version 1
or 1.1 in order to print directly from the card to the printer. DPOF files also automatically print directly from
a USB Flash drive that is connected to the USB port of the printer.
See Printing from memory cards and USB Flash drives for more information.
Your printer can print with six-ink color to enhance the quality of printed photographs. Print high-quality
grayscale photographs by using a black print cartridge and a tri-color print cartridge, or by using a gray
photo print cartridge and a tri-color print cartridge. To perform six-ink color printing, a photo and a tricolor
print cartridge must be installed together.
NOTE: You can print high-quality black-and-white photographs using a gray photo print cartridge,
combined with the tri-color print cartridge.
For the best results when printing photographs and images, choose Best mode and select an HP photo
paper in the printer driver. Best mode uses HP's unique PhotoREt IV color-layering technology and
ColorSmart III color optimization technology to create realistic photo images, vivid color output, and
extremely sharp text. With PhotoREt IV, a greater range of colors, lighter tones, and smoother
gradations between tones can be achieved, ensuring the best photo and image print quality.
Alternatively, select Maximum dpi, which provides up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi* for optimum
print quality.
*Up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi for color printing and 1200 input dpi. This setting might
temporarily use a large amount of hard disk space (400 MB or more) and will print more slowly. Photo
cartridge, if present, further enhances the print quality.
It is recommended to remove each sheet of paper as it prints and set it aside to dry.
If the printed colors visibly shift towards yellow, cyan or magenta, or there is a tinge of color in the
gray shades, you need to calibrate the color. See Calibrating color.
If you install photo print cartridges, align the print cartridges for best possible print quality. You do not
need to align the print cartridges every time you install a photo print cartridge, only when necessary.
See Aligning the print cartridges.
Always hold photo paper by the edges. Fingerprints on photo paper reduce print quality.
Photo paper should be flat before printing. If the corners of the photo paper curl more than
10 mm (3/8 inch), flatten the paper by putting it in the resealable storage bag, then rolling the bag
on a table edge until the paper is flat.
The printer supports standard PictBridge-compliant features. See your digital camera documentation for
more information about using its PictBridge features.
1. Connect the camera to the printer with the USB cable provided with the camera. The printer and
camera compare features, and the compatible features are displayed on the camera.
2. Navigate through the camera menus to execute the desired photo-printing features.
NOTE: The printer driver lets your computer read memory cards inserted into the printer as physical disk
drives when you are connected with a USB cable. You can then access your photo files and print them
with the software of your choice. (See Installing the printer software and sharing the printer (Windows).)
1. Insert the memory card into the correct card slot on the printer. Make sure the side of the card with the
connecting pins or holes is placed into the printer first.
2. Press (Cancel button) to cancel direct printing from the card. If your computer is connected to the
printer with a USB cable, the card then appears as a drive in Windows Explorer or on the Mac OS
desktop. You can then transfer the photo files to another drive on the computer or open and print your
photographs with the software application of your choice.
