How to Print a 2x2 From Your Computer

A small photographic image that measures only 2x2 inches is easy to print out. In fact, if the original file size measures exactly 2x2 inches, the process is quite quick. If you need to resize the image to 2x2 inches, you need an image-editing program. Keep in mind what image quality you require, and that a medium to high-resolution file is necessary to create an acceptable image for such purposes as a United States passport photograph.

Step

Click “File" and "Print” to begin the printing process.

Select your printer from the listed choices. Choose the paper type and image quality. The highest quality is best for a photographic image.

Load paper into your printer and click “Print.” Check the photo for desired quality and repeat the process with changes, if necessary.
