Photosmart 7350 Features:
Versatile Printing Options
Print from Flash Memory Cards
The printer has four flash memory card slots on the front next to the control panel. There is a dedicated slot for CompactFlash Type I or II cards including IBM Microdrive, a slot for SecureDigital or MultiMediaCard, a slot for SmartMedia and a slot for Memory Stick cards. Only one card can be inserted at a time (photo above is for illustration purposes only.) You will receive a control panel warning if you attempt to insert more than one card.
After inserting a memory card the data LCD will tell you that it is reading the
card and then shows the number of picture files that it has found. There is
no color LCD display to preview your images before printing so the next step would
be to print an index sheet.
You can print up to 63 thumbnails per 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper. Each thumbnail has the filename printed below and in the bottom left corner is a number that is assigned by the printer. You use this number to reference the photo(s) that you want to print. You can also select the ALL PHOTOS option if you want to print all the pictures on the card.
Using the selector switch you input the photo #'s that you want to print, then
the number of copies, select the desired paper size and hit the PRINT
button. You can use the Tools menu to manually adjust brightness (7 levels,)
select cropping (standard or full image,) borderless (on, off) or choose a color
option (color, black & white, sepia or antique.) The Tools menu also lets you clean
the print cartridges, select paper settings, page layout, menu language and regional
The memory card slots act just like a card reader when the printer
is connected to a computer via the USB cable. The memory card appears like a
removable drive in the "My Computer" folder of a Windows XP machine.
You can easily copy, move or delete files on "Drive F:" using Windows Explorer or
any file management program.
You'll find two new tray icons on your task bar. One looks like a memory
card and turns green when a card is inserted in one of the four card slots.
Right-clicking on it brings up the menu as shown above. The icon to the right gives
you access to the 7350's printer driver. See the section "Print from
Computer" on the next page for the driver features and options.
Print Directly from Photosmart Cameras
Many of the new HP digital cameras such as the Photosmart 620, Photosmart 720 and
Photosmart 812 (shown above) can be connected directly to the printer using the special USB
cable that is supplied with the camera. The camera is connected to the
front USB port on the printer.
Using the camera's Share menu you select the photos and number of copies that you want to print. This can be done with the camera by itself or when the camera is placed in the HP 8881 Digital Dock. See our Photosmart 812 camera review for more details on this operation.
