2 Mark the photographs required for printing as well as the number of prints, required photo size and paper on the contact sheet with a dark pen.
3 Place the contact sheet on the flatbed, press the scan button and watch your selected photos print - without even needing to turn on your PC.
Images can also be downloaded from the memory cards direct to your PC. The HP photocenter software included with the HP PSC 950 helps you make personalised photo albums and birthday cards. Email your favourite images to friends and family or post them onto a website such as
