Print From Wherever You Are
There is no need keeping those awesome photos on your Android tablet or phone digital. Print them simple and fast by using your own printer at home, at a store locally, or sent quickly to you through the mail.
There is no expensive hardware to buy, use your own photo printer or pay-per-print for a higher-quality solution.
Home Printer Photos
When printing photos regularly, using a photo printer at home can be an ideal solution. You want to use high-quality photo paper with a dedicated photo printer. Using an old printer with traditional printer paper is not advisable for photos.
Next, your Android tablet or phone needs to communicate with the printer. Most printers have a dedicated app available through the Play Store which installs all necessary drivers allowing you to print directly to the wireless printer.
Find the app by either searching the Play Store or go to Settings > Printing and press Add Service. You now will see printing apps available that match your printer make. Be sure to follow on-screen instructions as each app works differently.
Google Cloud Print is another way of printing from your Android tablet or phone. The amount of Cloud Ready printers is increasing every day, but non-compatible and older printers can use it as well. A printer is connected to your Google account for Google Cloud Print to work.
Print Photos Locally and Pick Them Up Quickly
Rather than using your own photo printer at home, if you’re only printing a couple of photos on occasion, pay-per-print at your local store. There is no need to spend or maintain a photo printer or high-quality photo paper. This way is less costly if only using for occasional photos.
There are many local businesses that print photos and have them ready for pick up the same day near you such as Walmart, CVS, Target, and Walgreens. With the use of apps, you can easily find local stores and send photos that you want printed and go pick them up when ready. This store also has ways to send and order your photos by visiting their web page directly. These photos are printed at high-quality with no worry about printer maintenance.
Order Photos to Be Delivered to Your Door
If you do not want to leave your house to have photos printed there is no need to. High-quality photos can be delivered to your door within a few days of order. With apps such as FreePrints, SnapFish, and Shutterfly you can easily have some or all of your photos printed and sent right to your door. If you want, have them send these photos directly to a family or friend for you.
If none of these options are appealing, you can transfer them by USB cable or store them with services such as Dropbox, OneDrive, or Google Photos and print them from there. However, they look much better straight from your Android phone.
