How to Print Pictures from Your Android Tablet

It’s entirely possible to print any image stored in the Gallery app on your Android tablet. Don’t go looking for a printer cable; you print wirelessly using the tablet’s Bluetooth radio. The only problem you need to solve is ensuring that you have a Bluetooth printer handy, that the printer is paired with the tablet, and that the printer is stocked with the proper kind of photo paper.

When you have the tablet and a Bluetooth printer paired and on speaking terms, obey these steps to print an image in the gallery:

  1. Ensure that the tablet’s Bluetooth wireless radio is on.

  2. Ensure that the Bluetooth printer is on, that its Bluetooth radio is on, and that the printer is stocked with ink and paper, ready to print.

  3. Open the Gallery app and browse to find the image you want to enshrine on paper.

  4. Touch the Bluetooth icon.

    If you don’t see a Bluetooth icon, touch the Share icon or choose the Bluetooth (or Share) command from the Menu icon’s menu.

  5. Choose the Bluetooth printer from the Bluetooth Device Chooser window.

  6. If prompted by the printer, confirm that the image upload is okay.

    Not every Bluetooth printer has such a prompt; some just go ahead and print the image.

Bluetooth printing isn’t perfect. For example, your Android tablet may not recognize the Bluetooth printer. It happens. As an alternative, you can attach an image to an e-mail message, send it to yourself, and then print it from your computer.
