How does it work exactly? Your printer and the Pictbridge will compare their features to each other and then and LCD screen will appear on the viewfinder. When the camera is connected to the printer, options will come up on the screen of the camera. Here you will find everything you need to update the settings. Those include layout of picture, size of photo, date and media type.
Using Pictbridge you can choose to print only one image or you can print multiple images from your card at one time. You can even crop a picture if you want!
