    Hi,

    I want to print some pictures as they come out of my A95, at home. Usually I
    send them out for my small prints but I want a few A4s at home, as I have
    read that the 5MP files are good for up to that size. I don't do any post
    processing at all, so I don't have photoshop.

    What program should I use to print them ? Which one do you normally use ?

    Thanks
    Kostas

    Look at the Irfanview, it's great for quick viewing and printing, and it's
    much, much better than the price would indicate (it's free!):

    The software with my Canon printer works fine for this, what printer are you
    using?

    If you'd like a program, which can automatically scale, crop and/or
    sharpen, take a look at Qimage. Free demo available at

    Didn't some photo software come with the camera?

    I use the supplied Easy-PhotPrint that Canon supplies, if the HP printer is
    a photo printer HP should have supplied some printing software. Also have a
    look on the HP site.

    I looked up that printer on the HP web site and failed to get a hit, more
    info needed.

    If you have a recent version of Windows it should have a simple photo
    editor that comes with it that should work okay.

    Thanks, I'll try the irfanview.
    Yes, I do have software that came with the camera, I was just wondering if
    there is something better that I don't know of.

    you could try gimp. http://www.gimp.org/

    it's pretty good photo editor for free. you can also install PS plug
    ins. not the best user interface but pretty powerful.

    neatimage is a very good clean up tool. it's also a freeware program.
    http://www.neatimage.com/

    not sure if this answers your question though as these are both photo
    processing programs. if your meaning you want to just send the image to
    the printer and print... most OS's have some form of print manager. so
    i'm assuming you mean you want to do some processing of some form. if
    that is the case gimp does just about anything PS will do. just the
    interface looks very DOS like. but free is free and it's a pretty good
    program. just make sure you get the one for your operating system. it
    was originally written for linux. (hense the dos'ie look)

    cheers
