Mac Leopard OS: Can't print from photo tray

Hi,

Do you have a solution for this? there just is no place to choose the option to print from the photo tray. I have to remove my 8x11 paper and put in photo paper on main tray whenever I want to print. This printer worked fine on my PC.

    I experienced an issue where I could not print from the photo tray of the c5180.   I tried the export method described on the other page, but no "HP Photosmart" tab was present...


    Any assistance would be appreciated

    I can't print from photo tray and I use Windows Vista

  • rosyrotten47 Feb 25, 2009

    I'm having the same problem.   When I tried to use the Export from iPhoto on OS X 10.5, there was no "HP Photosmart" tab present.   There were other tabs on it: File Export (which has kind, quality, size, file name), web page, QuickTime and Slideshow.   When I click on Export, I get Save As and Where.   When I pulled down the where, the HP Photosmart was not available to be used.
    Please help.   I'm an avid scrapbooker and printing just one 4x6 photo onto a 8x11.5 photo paper is a waste of paper.

Here's the trick. It took me an hour to figure this puzzle out myself. DO NOT select the Print icon at the bottom of iPhoto. Do NOT select Print from the File menu. DO select EXPORT from the File menu. Select the HP Photosmart Mac tab Select HP Photosmart Print.app from the app selector. Click the Export button. HP Photosmart Print.app will load with a new print dialog box. Make all necessary selections. This is where you can select the Photo Tray as the tray for the printer to take paper from. This solved MY problem! Let us know if this helps you!

It is not necessary to use Export. I have Leopard and iPhoto 2008. Here is what work for me:

  1. Select photo you want to print
  2. Select File -- Print
  3. In the Print dialog, select the Photosmart printer, select a "Paper Size" of 4x1, and one of the presets that tells it to use Photo Paper.
  4. Click "Print" --> It won't print! Another dialog appears!
  5. A drop-down which highlights "iPhoto" is in this dialog. Click it.
  6. From this drop-down, select "Paper Type/Quality"
  7. FINALLY, you see the option for "Source," which defaults to "Main Tray"
  8. Click on "Main Tray" and change it to "Photo Tray."
  9. DON'T click "Print" yet! Instead, click on the "Presets" drop down and chose "Save As," call it "Use Photo Tray," and you won't have to do this again.

Need Epson Stylus Photo 1270 driver for Macintosh Operating System 10.4.11 - is such still available? What about same for Mac OS Leopard or Snow Leopard? Is this printer still viable for such newer...


I found the Mac OS driver on Epson's driver site.Hit the plus sign to see more information with instructions and a download link.

Not sure what you mean by "viable". Personally if it prints and does what I need it to do reliably/consistently I consider it viable. But that may just be me.

Epson R300 CD/DVD Tray ERROR message with Leopard any Solutions?


One of the guys on this site said read the manual over and over again, and he was right.
You must go to system preferences and choose print and fax. Set the default media to A4. Then in the Print CD program when you hit print your will see fifth line down Epson Print CD on offer. Hit the arrows on the right and choose print settings from the drop down menu and then media type and choose CD / DVD. All should then work. It does on mine.
Regards and best wishes. David
