HP Photosmart 7960 Photo Printer

Print from Computer

The following screens show the various options of the 7960's print driver under Windows XP Pro. From what I saw in the manual, the same options are also available in the Mac OS driver but not tested by me.

Page 1 lets you quickly select a Print Task that you can define. Or just just select a paper size (Letter 8.5 x 11" is default.) If you click on Borderless Printing it will automatically assume HP Premium Plus Photo Paper, glossy and the driver will select "Best" quality. If you were printing on 8.5 x 11-inch paper you wouldn't even need to go any farther, just click OK and print. Or select 4 x 6-inch if printing jumbo size photo prints.

Clicking on the "hp Digital Photography" button will bring up the next screen.
