HP best printer soaftware for scanning and image cropping, manipulating...

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had an excellent HP all in one driver with image manipulation software but that only ran on windows XP. I tried the new software on windows 10, but it is not as powerful, for red eye fixes, cropping, size reduction, and other effects were good.

 

So which HP printer software is most powerful?

I don't think HP has any images editing software. All software which come with HP printers are from different vendors. HP may buy them, I don't know.

 

Currently HP Photo Creations software from RocketLife is the main software which comes with new printers. You can download from the following link and install to your computer

You can use many basic tools to edit photos before print. You can also buy some advanced tools if you wish after paying few dollars (each).

Re: HP best printer soaftware for scanning and image cropping, manipulating...

I will look again at photosolutions which seems to be what came with my HP printer anyway. But looking at the HP 250 it comes with software to convert scanned documents into editable text. My previous printer from 2004, had this, along with image rotate, red eye fix, sepia, convert to black and white, resize images even in batches, and some other features.

 

If you want feedback to HP  Rand D, I would like such software features, even ones that compete with Photoshop.

Once it's downloaded and installed, go to Start > All Programs > HP > HP Scan Extended > Run "HP Scan Extended"

I used to work for HP but I saw the light and retired!

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

1. >>>  But looking at the HP 250 it comes with software to convert scanned documents into editable text.

I don't know your printer therefore I can't tell there is OCR software to go with it. If it had, that's good for scanning, you can scan to editable text. Many cheaper printers do not have this software.

 

2.  >>> My previous printer from 2004, had this, along with image rotate, red eye fix, sepia, 

I did mentione from time to time, software for printers may change and old software won't come with new printers.

 

Hope this makes sense

It may help knowing which HP printer you have as different printers are provided with a different software...
