3 Quick and Easy Ways to Print Photos at Home

There’s nothing like browsing through a quality family photo album, with prints of all your best memories. A scroll through a photos folder on your phone just isn’t the same. 

Whether you’re turning the pages to view your holiday memories, creating a photo wall gallery at home, or showing the new in-law embarrassing baby shots of their chosen partner, printed photos provide the opportunity for a cherished ritual.

How to print photos at home

1. Invest in a mini printer

These days, there are a variety of portable home printers you can choose from to print out your smartphone and camera photos, including the Canon SELPHY CP1300 and the Fujifilm Instax Mini Link.

The Canon SELPHY CP1300

With the Canon SELPHY CP1300, you can print from your camera’s memory card or USB, or via your WiFi network. The largest size you can print is a 4x6 inch photo - the standard postcard size - although you can print various smaller sizes if you prefer. 

Print quality is amazing, with the printer using ink cartridges that will need replacing. The CP1300 requires a power outlet, although you can buy an additional battery pack for on-the-go printing. 

Fujifilm Instax Mini Link

What’s not to love about the Fujifilm Instax Mini Link? It prints in just 12 seconds, can print about 100 photos per charge, and is ultra-lightweight, making it a portable companion for on-the-go adventures. 

You use the same film you would use for an Instax instant camera and connect it to your smartphone via the dedicated app, using Bluetooth. What’s more, you can even use the Link as a remote control to take pictures. 

2. Use your standard home printer

A standard inkjet home printer is an affordable way of printing photos at home. Plus you get the versatility of choosing the size of your photo prints - you can usually print up to A3 size without fuss. 

While you’ll need to buy individual ink cartridges and photo paper, you’ll have far greater control over the ultimate look and feel of your photo prints.

Modern inkjet printers can connect to your WiFi so you can print wirelessly. Many printer manufacturers have their own apps so you can edit, browse, and print your photos with total creative control.
