How to Print a Picture in 5 Easy Steps

Sometimes you see a picture online (or take one yourself!) that's cool enough to hang on your wall. However, many people don't know how to print a picture at home and still make it look good!

Not everyone has access to a quality printer, so they might seek out a professional photo printing service. However, these services can often be expensive to use and might require a special trip to the store. Wouldn't you rather get your photos directly from DoNotPay?

How to Print a Picture At Home Without Using a Service

On most computers, this is the easiest way to print a picture:

  1. Find the photo that you want to print in your computer's files. If it's an image online, you'll have to right-click it and select 'Save As' to add it to your files.
  2. Turn on your printer.
  3. Right-click on the image, then left-click 'Print". A new dialog box will open.
  4. On this dialog box, you can select the size of the photo. You can also choose between a grayscale or a color image.
  5. Confirm your selection, and your photo should begin printing!

Common Problems When Printing Pictures By Yourself

Obviously, you can only print a picture from home if you have your own printer! Even the least expensive printer usually costs around $40. If you only print pictures occasionally, it doesn't make sense to make such an investment.

Additionally, there are many printer brands to choose from, and not all of them are created equal. A cheap printer probably won't be able to produce the high-quality photos that you need.

Even if your photo is only in black and white, the printer still needs ink to print the picture. Ink cartridges alone can cost $40 for a pack!

You also have to keep the printer loaded with paper, another expense to consider. If you want to print glossy photos, you'll need to buy a different kind of printer paper.

The size of your photo can also be limited depending on what printer you have. Smaller photos for ID cards can usually be printed with no problem, but many printers can't produce quality canvas-sized photos!

If the photo itself is located on your phone, you'll probably also need a photo printing app. There are pages of these apps on your phone's app store for both i-phone and android, but some of them might not work correctly with your computer!

The Importance of High-Quality Prints

Many people love to print pictures to hang on their walls or to use as keepsakes. A high-quality photo is also essential in many situations, such as:

  • Applying for a license or passport (you need an accurate photo I.D.!)
  • Adding a photo to your resume (this can increase your chances of getting work in many industries!)
  • Needing evidence in court (high-quality photos will prove your case!)

Where Else Can I Print a Picture?

If you don't have access to your own printer, you may also be able to print quality photos at:

Some Grocery ChainsBig-box stores like Walmart offer affordably-priced prints that you can also order online. However, many people have left complaints that the packaging for shipped photos is too flimsy.
PharmaciesWalgreens can print most types of photos and even offers same-day pickup if you order online. However, the prices go up quickly if you want to print bigger photos, and the print quality itself is hit-or-miss.
Self-service Print ShopsSelf-service print shops often have multiple high-quality printers available for a variety of image types. However, not everyone has access to these specialty stores in their area.
