Printer default size

HP Recommended
HP envy 7800

Hello, I am doing a DIY Photobooth for my wedding. Every time I print pictures I always have to change the photo size to 4x6. It always defaults to 5x7. I currently only have my iPhone and the app for the printer. I don’t have a computer at the moment. How do I change the default photo try size to 4x6? I don’t want my guest to have to try and figure out how to change the size of the paper.

@Alexalynn, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Check for any software updates available for the iOS device.

Go to Settings > General > Update the software

 

Update the printer firmware

Go to Setup > Printer maintenance > Update the printer > Check now

 

Let us try these steps to change the default paper size:

  1. On the printer control panel, touch the Wireless icon ().

    The network and IP address information displays.

  2. Type the printer's IP address into a web browser address bar.

    The printer's EWS page displays.

  3. From the printer's EWS page, click the Settings tab.

  4. Under Preferences, click Paper Settings.

  5. Under Default Media Size, click the drop-down menu, and then select the desired media size.

    NOTE: The default paper size for Apple AirPrint is 4×6 inches. Make sure that the Paper Settings on the printer's EWS page match the paper size settings on the Apple device.

    NOTE: Changing the Default Media Size affects future print jobs. It might be necessary to change the Default Media Size when printing documents that are not the same size as the documents you are printing with Apple AirPrint.

Alternatively, for more info on how to print from your iOS device using AirPrint, refer to this document.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

This is the only thing I can find.. just “Tray and paper management”. No default preferences for paper. Is this the same thing?

@Alexalynn, that's correct. You are on the right page.

 

Make changes to the settings as required, click on Apply and close the window.

Restart the printer and try printing.

 

Let me know how it goes.
