  1. From the main screen, tap Photo Print.

    You can select images stored in specific albums on your device by tapping Albums, then selecting the album and images.

    Pictures chosen, Add outlined in red

     You can tap Show Selected to view the image(s) you selected for printing. You can swipe through the image(s), and if you don't want to print an image, you can either tap the check mark on the image, or tap Deselect All. Tap Done when finished.

     Not all models that are supported by Canon PRINT will support the cropping function (for example, the SELPHY CP1300 is a model that does not support this). Also, depending on the model of printer you are using, this screen may look slightly different. Rather than a cropping button, you may see a button that says Edit Image. If you see this button, tap it, and get the following message:

    Figure: Image editing function is not available for the selected printer

    Tap OK. You will not be able to crop the image. Skip to step 7.

  6. Pinch to zoom on the area you want to print. Move / rotate the frame to select the portion you want to save. You can also tap Rotate Frame to switch between portrait and landscape orientation. Select OK to crop the image or Cancel to exit. You will return to the Print Preview screen.

  7. Tap Print Settings to change print settings (paper size, media type, bordered / borderless, etc.).

  8. Tap Print to print the image or Deselect if you decide not to print.

    NoteThe available print setting may differ depending on the printer model being used.

    Print preview screen. Print Settings, and Print buttons shown at bottom of the screen. Deselect button is under the image

     If you tap Print Settings, make any adjustments needed, then tap Back to use the settings specified. Tap Print after tapping Back. Note that the settings available may vary by model.

    Adjust any settings as needed, then tap Back (outlined in red) to proceed with the settings specified
