Chapter 9. Hardcopies Made Easy >  Printers and Digital Cameras

Printers and Digital Cameras

In recent months, printers and digital cameras began working in tandem even more closely, with features found in both types of components that, sometimes, eliminate the need for Photoshop or even a computer altogether. Yes, it’s now become easier to print your digital camera images directly, especially if your images don’t require the manipulations Photoshop can provide.

For example, many digital cameras support the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) so that the camera owner can select images for printing right in the camera. The DPOF file is written to the camera’s removable media and is read and executed by photofinishers and other printing services as well as applications that are compatible with DPOF. You can use this format just as if you were filling out a film order envelope at your retailer’s photofinishing counter. You can choose photos, quantities, specify index prints of thumbnail information, rotate your images, and include along with your print order a title and description for each print as well as your name, address, and other personal information.
