When printing photos, the image covers the whole sheet. Can I print smaller images

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I’m using the HP3830 printer, WiFi. Printing photos from my iPhone 11.  The photo image prints, covering the full sheet (8 1/2  X  11).

iIt does not allow me to print smaller images. 
How can I print smaller images?

Welcome to the HP Community.

Be Aware:

These people might be scammers trying to steal your information / money.



At this writing, the HP Smart Mobile application is pretty limited - any "resizing" you do must be entered manually.

It's not very precise, but it is at least somewhat doable.

Much better control is available when printing from Windows or MacOS.


Partial Example - HP Smart - Mobile - Image Print

Open HP Smart

Select to Print Image

Select the Image to be printed

Set the size / options / Print
