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

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

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
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.

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??
