How to Print Quality 5x7 Photos From Home by Yourself

Printing digital photographs at home has become part of a photographer's life. Because of digital technology, photographs can be printed from home computers instead of a photo lab. Although most printers can handle digital photographs, some of the best are designed to print pictures. Using a special photo paper and printer, produce your to share with friends and family or to frame in your home.

There are two ways of creating and printing a 5-inch by 7-inch photo; using your phone or computer.

Using Your Phone

You start by cropping the photo to the 5-inch by 7-inch format. If you use a point-and-shoot digital camera, you probably have pictures at a 4:3 ratio. The simplest method is cropping the picture yourself. Once you are satisfied with the size, proceed to print.

  1. Select the photo(s) you want to print and click the print button.
  2. Select the printer, the paper size, or custom for any not listed size and the print size. If you are dissatisfied and want to make custom changes, click Customize.
  3. Select custom options and control-click on the image to get options to fit the frame, etc. You also can zoom the photo and move it around in the frame if it does not fit to control the cropping.
  4. Click Print to move to the final window, where you can select the paper source and other printer-specific options. If you do not have a large window with the options menu, click on the little triangle to the right of the printer name to expand the window.

Using Your Computer

Here’s what to do:

  1. Connect the digital camera to the computer with the USB cord.
  2. Go to My Computer and double-click on the camera drive to open the folder contents.
  3. Select the photograph you wish to print from the list.
  4. Click-drag the photograph to the desktop or a designated folder and open photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop Elements or Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo.
  5. Go to File, and once it is open, select the photograph.
  6. Press Ctrl+A to select the entire photograph.
  7. If you are using Paint Shop Pro Photo, go to Image and select Resize, and if you are using Photoshop, choose Image Size instead. A resizing dialog box will appear. It lets you adjust your resolution to the most appropriate, that is, between 200 and 300 dots per inch (dpi) or pixels per inch (ppi).
  8. Uncheck the box next to Resample Image to scale the photograph without altering the resolution of the final picture. Here, type the height and width of the photograph into the designated field to create a 5-inch-by-7-inch image. Then, change only one measurement in the resizing dialog, either the 5-inch or the 7-inch side, and close the dialog box.
  9. Navigate to Image and then Canvas Size and adjust the incorrect size in the designated box to make the canvas 5-inches-by-7-inches.

Proceed to print.

  1. Insert the glossy or matte inkjet photo paper into your printer's paper tray.
  2. Go to File and select print.
  3. Click on Print Setup or Preferences. Select Glossy Photo Paper or Matte Photo Paper from the list of paper types in your printer's Preferences screen.
  4. Press OK and then click Print to print your photograph.
