Hp5530 and Dell latop running windows 8-printing issues

I have successfully scanned a photo to my computer and it went into "my photos". How do I get it to print from there?

Can you see/view it ? You can print from there. Other option:


(a) Hold down Win key and press Q

(b) Search for HP Photo Creations

(c) Open scanned image from "My Photos"

(d) Change it if you wish

(e) Click Print to print (after loading photo paper ...)


Note: Loading photo papers (face down) on the Envy 5530 is a bit tricky, you have to push thru the end, before push the tray back.

Thanks, Banhien.


Jen, if you don't have HP Photo Creations already, you can download it for free at After you install the program, click the Quick Prints button, select the size of print you want, and then click Add Photos. Finally, navigate to your My Photos folder to add the photo.
