How to Print a Picture on HP 4500

By Mario Calhoun

The Hewlett-Packard 4500 all-in-one machine comes with the HP Photosmart Essential software that provides direct printing from your photo library on your computer to the HP 4500. The software includes a photo editor that allows enhancements to your images for premium-print quality typically found in expensive photo-editing software. In addition to photo enhancements, Photosmart Essential also includes templates that can be added to the photos for decorative purposes, and is found in version 3.5 and later of the HP photo-editing software.
