when I select a photo to print off my phone, it prints a letter size page. How can I find setting to print a 4x6 photo?

If you use the HP Smart for Mobile application, resize options are limited.

If you can use 4x6 inch paper,

If you can get the printer and the HP Smart to accept the setting,

You can print a 4x6 inch photo without the "resize".

 

 

Load the correct paper size into the printer according the the instructions in the User Guide.

 

Open HP Smart (for mobile)

Open Settings

Open Add / Set Up a Printer 

Scroll down, Click / Check / Adjust Tray and Paper

Check / Adjust settings in Advanced

Click Apply to save changes

 

Note:

You can also reach the Embedded Web Server (EWS) from your browser.

Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Settings > Preferences > Tray and Paper Management

If applicable, check the Advanced section (at the bottom of the Tray and Paper Management menu)

Click Apply to save changes

If that works, then you don't need resize - just print the image at the same size as the paper (or use one of the available options, for example, Fit).

 

If it won't work for any reason,

OR

If you are wanting to print a 4x6 inch photo on full size paper,

this is where it becomes more difficult.

Why?  There is no "4x6 inch" resize selection.

You have to "resize" by hand, literally, and it is not accurate to say the least.

 

Using full size paper by choice or because the app won't allow you to change the paper?

Honestly, though not much better, this is slightly more "doable":

Open a blank Pages document,

Place the photo into the document,

Resize the image - it is still rather awful - tiny screen and fingers to "resize".

This method at least shows the image size as you contract / expand the image.

Save the Pages file and print.

Meh.
