Welcome to the HP Community.

====================================================================

 

There are a few ways to do this.

Use the size of the original photo (in pixels) print the photo at the percentage of 100%.

 

Both methods shown here assume the printer Full Feature Software is installed.

 

Method - Use Paint and free tools to calculate the size of the print (percentage of 100% of the original size)

 

Optional - Check / Calculate Aspect setting

Print at Percentage of 100%

  • Open image in Paint (mspaint)
  • Open File Explorer > navigate to the folder in which the photo / image is stored
  • Right-Click on Photo file > Properties > Details > Note pixels counts (width and height)
  • Optional:  Use Aspect Ratio Calculator to ensure the shape of the photo will fit on the shape and size of the paper you wish to use for the print
  • Optional:  Use Pixels to Print Size Calculator (calculator #2 on the page) to calculate the Pixels to Print Size
  • Use the Math.com 3-way Percent Calculator to calculate the percentage of the larger side (width or height) to obtain the percentage of 100 % when printed on your selected paper and at your desired size
  • Print the file using Paint at the calculated percentage of 100%

 

Example - Paint - Print at Calculated Size

Method - Use Irfanview to print the photo at desired size
