photos, but sometimes all the new jargon they use is really confusing. Here’s a guide to Pictbridge, and
how it helps your printer deliver great images without crying over spilt ink.

The Knowhow
There are so many varieties of camera and memory card that things could get quite confusing for your
poor old printer. This is why the industry created Pictbridge; an industry standard technology that lets
printers recognise and print image files without the need for a computer. If your printer and camera are
both Pictbridge compatible, they can be connected directly via a USB lead.
Each make of camera may require you to turn its Pictbridge features on in a different way. The user
documentation will show you how.
Once Pictbridge is activated on the camera, ensure you have connected it to a power source before
you connect it to the printer via the USB cable. This is to stop the battery running out partway through
the transfer which can cause damage to your files and images.
When the two devices have recognised they are connected, use the settings on your camera to
select the images you wish to print as well as any printing options. Once you’re happy, select the print
option from the camera to get everything rolling.
Many printers and cameras carry the Pictbridge technology. All that are compatible feature the logo
on the box. However, some printers and cameras will offer more Pictbridge features than others. Check
the specifications for details.
This is a great piece of technology that bridges the gap between your camera and the printer.
Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific details.
