[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Palugu Software today is pleased to announce PhotoPrint 1.1 for iOS, their Photography app that allows users to select any number of photos from the Photo Library of their iOS device for wireless printing on any AirPrint compatible printer. Features include: scaling, cropping, rotating, multiple images per page, multiple pages, bordered or borderless, background color, and all standard photo paper sizes. Ideal for both professional and amateur photographers, the app eliminates the need to transfer photos to a computer before printing.
"Printing a 4 x 6 inch post card, with two different photos side by side, can be done in a matter of seconds with PhotoPrint," commented Simone Belfi, printing expert and partner at TouchingCode, developer of the app. "You can flip the printout around, write down the address and a note and send it off immediately."
According to Apple, "AirPrint-enabled applications can print to a printer that supports AirPrint—and you don't need to install a driver or configure the printer queue. Tap print, select your printer that supports AirPrint, and print."
The first step in printing with PhotoPrint is that the user selects the photo size and the number of photos to be printed on each sheet of paper. This is done by sliding the icons for size and number of photos into the frame in the middle of the screen. When the layout is OK, users can start adding photos. Tapping the green + or a space opens the device's built-in Photo Library. Up to ten photos may be selected at a time by tapping once to check, or tap again to uncheck. Once added to the print document, photos may be easily re-positioned, scaled, cropped, or rotated.
PhotoPrint uses Apple's AirPrint technology for printing. PhotoPrint prints wirelessly from the user's iOS device to any AirPrint printer. It works seamlessly and without any additional setup, connecting with all printers that are AirPrint-enabled.
