How To Print Pictures in Windows XP

Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Unlike previous versions of windows XP has simplified the process of printing color photos. Whether you took the picture yourself or received it via email, printing pictures has never been so easy.

Find the Pictures you want to print
When you save a picture from an email, or from your digital camera, XP should automatically save them into your My Pictures folder. To find the pictures you want to print, click on the start button, and then click on the My Pictures menu item, which is usually near the top on the right hand side of the menu.

Using the Photo Printing Wizard to Select your Photos
Once the wizard appears, click on the next button, to move to the photo selection stage. You should now see your thumbnails of your pictures. If you have a lot of pictures, then use the scrollbar on the right hand side to scroll through them all.

In the top right hand corner of each thumbnail there should be a small box with a tick in it. This means that the wizard has selected that picture for printing. Usually the wizard starts off selecting every available picture for printing. Now select the individual pictures you want to print by clicking on the empty tick box in the top corner of the picture.
Please note, that the tick won't appear on the picture when you print it out.

Selecting a layout
Once you have picked all of the pictures you want to print, click on the next button a the bottom of the wizard. Most people only have one printer installed so you should just see your usual printer listed on this next page. If not, select the printer you want to use from the list provided, then click next.

Once you have the layout you want, just click the next button and windows XP will start printing your pictures.
