In December an Instagram friend, Lexi, posted a pic of her printer and how she was printing from her phone. I was on a mission to find a photo printer with those capabilities but wasn’t having much luck. Excited to try it out, I forwarded the info to Santa. Dear Santa, Please get me the Canon Selphy CP900 printer…
Since I was a good girl and all, when Christmas rolled around I unwrapped my new toy. Fast forward a couple months and I am finally getting around to playing with it, and I must say, it’s really fun!
This past weekend, I followed my Avery around & filmed her. For some reason she likes to set up her toys and take pics of them. Or her and Q love to sneak my phone and take funny pictures and videos on it. Then I showed her how easy it is to print her photos directly from my iphone.
(Follow the Canon Selphy instruction manual and it’s pretty quick set up. I just had to make sure that my phone and the printer were on the exact same wireless network. At first it wouldn’t work because one of them was on our guest wireless network. Otherwise it was easy.)
You need two apps you’ll see in the video: Canon iepp & if you want to print two Instagrams on one 4×6 paper you’ll use a collage app like PicFrame with the 3:2 ratio option and save the collage to your photo library then print.
Instagram lovers will appreciate this printer because it encourages us to get our photos off our phones and on display. This makes me so excited for taking it on our trip next month too since it’s very compact.
