Using a Dye Sub Printer without a Computer An overview of how to use your Photo Printer without a PC!
Stand Alone Mode or Connected to a PC?
Will you want to use the printer without a PC?
Traditionally most Professional photographers have become used to editing their photos in PhotoShop before printing; but increasingly this is no longer the case. We are constantly being told by photographers that they still do this, only to find that they actually print directly from the memory card, because using a stand alone printer with a hand held controller produces prints of exceptional quality!
Despite some initial reluctance, most photographers having seen the high quality of the prints produced, now print directly from the memory card without the need for a PC and PhotoShop. Gone are the days when you needed to spend lots of time "tweaking" colours etc.
Using the stand-alone technique saves a lot of time by removing the PC and any hand trimming from the production process. As a frequent portability solution, a stand-alone HiTi Photo Printer is often used in conjunction with the optional HiTi power supply inverter, allowing many event photographers to print immediately on-site in their car via the cigarette adaptor to satisfy instant demand.
After taking your advice, we printed directly from the memory card, although we were skeptical that this would not be of sufficient quality. (We photographers are very critical) However to our delight the quality was fantastic, we never had to make any adjustments. We just took the card out of the camera and the printers out of the boxes and everything worked amazingly well. - Colin Charles
Some photographers use the DPOF mode on their camera, whereby they take images and select on the camera which ones they wish to print. It is then a simple task to tell the printer to print all the selected images in one go. This is ideal for black tie & equestrian functions; and many photographers use this technique.
I didn't think I would be printing straight from the camera but the results speak for themselves. - Mike Orr
You can print directly from the card for once I did not even open photoshop, this saved me so much time especially with a busy portrait studio on the go. I was able to print directly using DPOF (direct print setting from the camera). Very Impressed. System insight were more than helpful Thankyou. - FocusFirst, Cambridge
The printer is capable of printing direct from the memory card and this has been useful for quick prints - Eldridge Photography, Southampton
If your Hi-Ti Photo Printer does not support your specific memory directly, then an adapter maybe available.
