Unable to resize photos on HP Smart App for ios

HP Smart

My HP Smart app allows me to change the size and position of photos but the app appears to have changed and I no longer know how to do this. Any advice is most welcome. Thanks

Unable to resize photos on HP Smart App for ios



Yep, the few "resize" options that were available in HP Smart for iOS appear to be gone.  Rats.


Edits - 09-Dec-2019

Updated content.

While sincere at the time, the original statements were found to be inaccurate.


Added examples, including a reminder to check the paper size / tray in printer and in the settings.


Sizing options in the latest release of the HP Smart for iOS application are indeed a bit more advanced than in previous versions.  This is not an unblemished endorsement; there is work yet to be done.


HP Smart - Version 7.0 - Example


If  necessary, update the application to the latest version.  "Newest" is best, it seems, even as things do occasionally change.


Open the HP Smart Application




If you have not done so, confirm / update the various Settings, including those for Tray and Paper







If you change the paper in the printer, many printers (those with a printer panel), require that you tell the printer about any paper changes.


Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Panel


Open Printer Tray,

If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

On the printer control panel, Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK


NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down list, Select Custom



Back on the main HP Smart Menu...

Open View and Print  Select a location > Find and select your photo



When the photo is in your view, Click Print to manage options (including resizing)



Select a Sizing option.

The "Manual" option allows you to grab and manually resize and move the photo.

When finished, Click the Done button in the upper right corner of the menu.



At this writing, Manual exact resize is not available unless you can manage to manually tweak the sizing.


Place one or more photos into a Pages Document, size as needed, and print the document.

Unable to resize photos on HP Smart App for ios

I have no idea why HP removed the resizing image tool ... it was the only reason i got the app in the first place. I hope they bring resizing back.


One thing I considered was installing the old version of the app and never updating beyond that..


Has anyone tried this yet??
