4 Easy Ways To Print Photos From Your Phone

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Those picture perfect moments are probably stored on your phone or uploaded on social media, but every now and again we long for that printed form.

Thanks to technology, turning digital memories into physical prints can be done in a snap.

Here’s four easy ways to get prints without the old-school hassles:

Try a Bluetooth printer like the $130 Polaroid Zip or HP Sprocket. They use ZINK paper which costs about 50 cents per sheet and prints are small at 2×3 inches.

For regular-sized 4×6 or square 4×4 prints, try a photo app like PostalPix that pulls images from your phone gallery. FreePrints does the same thing but offers up to 1,000 free photos a year, just pay for shipping.

Another option is to send photos wirelessly to your own compatible home printer using AirPrint for iOS.

If your phone photos are in the cloud, Google Photos now has photo books starting at $10. Choose the layout from the web or in the Google Photos app. Amazon Prints has a similar service plus regular prints up to 20×30.

Before you know it, it will be time to send out those holiday photos so these are some quick and easy ways the could also allow you to customize those holiday prints.
