How To Print Pictures From My Android Phone? 

Do you have tons of pictures on your phone that you would like to have a hard copy of? Having photos that you can physically hold and touch is obviously much different from viewing them from a screen. Photos hold so many memories and many people, knowingly or unknowingly, would love to have their precious memories stored in a physical or tangible format. There’s something special about having printed photos that you can keep in an album or hang as decorations in your home.

Printing Photos From Your Android Phone

With so many printing services around these days, you should not find it hard to print pictures from your mobile phone if you don’t own a printer yourself. There are various ways you can print photos from an android phone to a printer.

Google Cloud Print

Google’s Cloud Print service is the best way to print pictures and documents straight from your android device to a printer. The amazing thing about it is that it lets you print from any app that supports printing. Most Android devices that run newer operating systems come with Google Cloud Print pre-installed. If your android device doesn’t have it, you can always get it from the Google Play Store or simply use an online printing service to do the job for you.

Adding A Printer

You need to add a printer to the Google Cloud Print service to print any photos or documents you have on your phone. To do this, turn your phone and printer on and make sure that they are both connected to your Wi-Fi network, then proceed with the following steps.

  • Go to your phone’s settings and search for “printing” in the search box. Select the printing option that turns up.
  • Select “cloud print”.
  • Tap on the three stacked dots (menu option) at the top right-hand corner of the screen and choose “Add printer”.
  • Cloud print will then search for printers that are connected to your Wi-Fi network. Once it finds your printer, select it, and it should connect automatically.

Printing Photos

The remaining steps are simple and easy. All you need to do is:

  • Find the photo you want to print using the gallery app or our phone’s storage or file manager app. You can also look for pictures saved on cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox.
  • Once you have found the picture, open it and tap on the three-dot menu button and select the option to print.
  • If there’s no other printer currently connected to your Google Cloud Print service, your phone should connect automatically to your printer. You will then get various printing options like the number of copies you wish to print, orientation, colour options etc.
  • When satisfied with everything, tap ‘Print’.

NFC (Near Field Communication)

You can also use NFC to print pictures from your mobile phone, provided that it has NFC capability and your printer supports NFC printing. To use NFC printing, you may be required to download a specific printer app from your printer’s manufacture. Most printer apps can be found on the Google Play Store. 

It’s not easy to give a step-by-step guide on how to use NFC because different printers and their apps function differently. You can always refer to your printer’s manual for instructions on how to do so.

NFC is great because all you need to do is tap the printer with your phone, and you can start printing.


Last but not least, you can print pictures from your phone using Bluetooth. Bluetooth is not a very common way to print photos from a mobile phone because not many apps support Bluetooth printing. The step-by-step process is also not as easy as Google Cloud Print or NFC. To print via Bluetooth, your printer needs to have Bluetooth capability. 

These are some of the easiest ways to print pictures and documents from your android phone. However, for best results, it is recommended that you use a professional printing service. If you are looking to print the best quality photos from your smartphone, then look no further than Photoland.

Wonderful experience. I first went into the store very tentatively, not sure if I ‘needed’ a custom made frame, however, having Victor’s consultative input on the different frame designs and customisable feature was so valuable. In the end Victor helped create a beautiful frame for my father in law’s memorial service sheets. As you can imagine, this was a sensitive thing to put in someone else’s hands but the team treated everything with such care and the finished product looks amazing.Thanks guys, would 100% more

#aboveandbeyond Victor and the Photoland team produced the most fantastic framed photo gift for me to surprise my partner with. They combined the half marathon medal and number with a photo from the finish line - the end product far surpassed my expectations . Real customer service, great communication - no wonder they are the only photo framing place in the CBD. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again more
