How to Print Photos From an Android Smartphone or Tablet

android phone photo cameraPhotos you take on your Android smartphone don’t have to stay digital. You can get physical copies of those photos printed out quickly and easily — using your own printer, at a local store, or sent to you in the mail.

You don’t need any fancy hardware to do this. You could use your own photo printer, but that isn’t even an ideal solution — if you just want to print the occasional photo, just pay per-print.

Print Photos on a Home Printer

You can print photos yourself, if you have the appropriate type of printer. But this probably isn’t the ideal solution unless you want to print a lot of photos on a regular basis.

For hardware, you’ll want a dedicated photo printer with high-quality photo paper. You’ll also need to buy color printer ink, of course. Don’t just print to a piece of typical printer paper using any old printer you have lying around.

Software-wise, you’ll need a way for your Android phone to communicate with the printer. Google Cloud Print offers this, in theory. But, unlike Apple’s AirPrint, we’ve had hit-and-miss results with a number of Google Cloud Print-enabled printers. Quality of the resulting printout can suffer, which is a problem when printing photos instead of just plain-old text documents. We’d recommend not buying a Google Cloud Print-enabled printer if you actually just want to print photos. Using Google’s Cloud Print connector to activate Google Cloud Print capabilities on a wired photo printer also may not be ideal.

Instead, you’ll probably want to communicate with the printer a different way. Some photo printers can function over Bluetooth — just pair the phone and printer and send a photo over Bluetooth. Some Wi-Fi-enabled printers can even accept photos and other documents via email, so you could email a photo to your printer from your phone to print it.

Many printer manufacturers offer their own dedicated Android apps that you can install on your phone and use to print photos to a Wi-Fi-enabled printer. For example, these apps include HP ePrint, Epson iPrint, and Brother iPrint&Scan. If you’re buying wireless photo printer just for this, be sure you’re getting one that can work with an Android phone—and not necessarily just with Google Cloud Print.

You can easily print a photo by opening it and using the Share button — share it to email, Bluetooth, or a manufacturer’s printer app you have installed on your phone.
