From HP comes a new range of Photosmart printers complete with TouchSmart touch-sensitive technology which HP claims means that even the youngest family members can print photos without using a PC.
Using the built-in memory card slot and HP TouchSmart screen you can navigate and select photo collections. There are automatic adjustments for red-eye, lighting and colour.
Alternatively the HP Photo Print Gadget allows you to drag and drop photos to a desktop icon from virtually anywhere – folders, applications, e-mail and websites.
HP software will also intelligently edit and crop photos to suit the photo paper size.
Many of the printers in the new HP Photosmart series have built-in wireless features to provide flexible printing for all the family to use around the home, including the HP Photosmart with Wireless, HP Photosmart Plus and the HP Photosmart Premium.
Using the iPrint Photo application, iPhone and iPod touch users can also print wirelessly.
