HpphotosmallCompact photo printers are a wonderful thing. I don’t go on vacation without mine and now I have this great HP Photosmart compact printer that I want to tell you about. Unlike any photo printer I have used, the A626 gives me the ability to add frames, clip art, captions and more.  This means no more trips to the scrapbook store for die cuts, embellisments, etc.!  It’s all on printed directly on photograph.  Then I simply add the photograph to Madelyn’s scrapbook and I’m done!  Times sure have changed.

With the A626, I can print pictures directly from my camera, memory card or computer. I took the photo printer to my mother’s house once and she asked me how I know what a photograph looks like before printing it if I am using the memory card. The 4.8" color screen of course!  I can scroll through and view any image directly on the screen. Then, using the stylus, I can crop photographs, edit the brightness, work with the color, add captions, and more.  Sebastian (8 years old) had fun drawing mustaches on everyone’s faces.  Then I choose how many copies of a photograph I want to print and use my stylus to click the printer icon and wahlah, I’ve got pictures!

The A626 has a carry handle, and the extendable parts fold in too make it easy to take with you anywhere.  The A626 works off one ink cartridge and can accommodate most if not all size memory cards.  You can print 4×6 and 5×7 photographs in as little as 39 seconds.Hpphotobooks

Want an easy way to share and give your photographs with family and friends? HP Photo Books available in 5×7 and 8.5×11 sizes come with everything you need to create a one of a kind gift.

The HP Photo Book includes all the things you need:  a professional looking hardcover photo book, easy to use
layout and design software, and HP Advanced Photo Paper (12 sheets). Simply add your photos and creative touch,
and you’re ready to go.  The included software gives you a variety of designs and styles for personalizing and creating unique photo pages.

After I installed the included software on my computer, I chose the design, size, layout and photographs I wanted and printed my pages.  Then I slipped the photographs into the pop-open spine of my Photo Book and was done.  The entire process took about one hour but will vary depending on how much time you spend creating your pages.
