With Windows Photo Viewer, you can make prints of your digital photos. If you don't have a printer handy, you can use Windows to order prints online.
Double-click a picture to launch Windows Photo Viewer.
On the toolbar, click the Print button, and then click Print.
In the Print Pictures dialog box, select the printer, paper size, print quality, print style, and number of copies.
When you're done, click Print.
You can print several smaller pictures on a single page.
Press and hold the Ctrl key, and then click the pictures you want to print.
Right-click any of the selected pictures, and then click Print.
In the Print Pictures dialog box, select the picture size and number of copies.
You'll see a preview of your picture in the Print Pictures dialog box. Depending on the number of pictures you're printing, you might use more than one sheet of paper.
To launch the Print Pictures dialog box directly, right-click a photo, and then click Print.
Some printers allow you to print a mirror image of a picture (sometimes called "reverse landscape" or "reverse portrait"). If you select this option, the preview image in the Print Pictures dialog box won't change. However, the picture will print as a mirror image.
Print quality depends on several factors, including your choices of paper and ink, printer settings, and the quality of the original photo.
You can also order prints of your pictures online. For more information, see Order prints of your pictures online.
