The HP Photo Imaging Software will auto launch when your camera is connected via the USB cable provided or the optional Dock is attached. As you move your mouse over each of the selections the main body of the window explains the option you are hovering over. If, in the camera you have tagged (DPOF) the images for printing or email, as soon as the auto upload to the computer has completed that process is automatically started. If no DPOF selections were made you can choose those actions here.

HP also provides a reasonable image manipulation package so, if you have that desire, you can tweak your images to your ideal before printing or emailing. The software was easy to use and has more capabilities than most users would ever want.
