Hewlett-Packard Company has launched two new inkjet photo printers, the HP PhotoSmart 1315 and HP PhotoSmart 1115.
The HP PhotoSmart 1315 has a 6cm wide colour LCD that lets users review photographs stored on a memory cards, and carry out simple functions such as rotate, zoom and crop. Users can select whether they want to print in colour, B&W, sepia or antique without turning on their PC or Mac.
Time and date information can also be added to individual photo prints. The printer's control panel also includes an email button that automatically attaches a selected photo into a message on the computer, and a synchronized save facility that recognizes new photos on the memory card and saves in any target folder on the PC or Mac.
According to HP, the PhotoSmart 1315 prints up to 17ppm in black and 13ppm in
colour and is compatible with CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Microdrive and Sony Memory Stick.

control panel, a print cancel button, a low-ink indicator plus a save button that uploads the content of CompactFlash
and SmartMedia memory cards to a PC.
The PhotoSmart 1115 can, say HP, print up to 12ppm in black and 10ppm in colour.
