Your iPhone camera allows you to save images, send photos to friends and family or create wallpaper. You also can print your favourite images by purchasing an application from iTunes. A free option is to download the photo to your computer desktop and print it by using graphics software such as Paint, which is included with the Windows operating system.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Use a USB to connect your iPhone to your computer. If you have iTunes, you can use it to load the camera images.

  2. 2

    Click the Windows Start button and select "All Programs." In this menu, select "Accessories" and then "Scanner and Camera Wizard." The Windows operating system treats the iPhone like a camera, so you can transfer images from the phone to the computer.

  3. 3

    Click the "Advanced Users Only" link at the opening window. A directory opens with a list of iPhone files. Copy the image you want to print to a directory on your computer's hard drive.

  4. 4

    Open Microsoft Paint and load the transferred image into the application. You may need to resize the image to print on smaller paper. To resize the image, click the "Image" menu option and select "Resize/Skew." Enter a new height and width, which is measured in percentages. For instance, entering "50" into the text box reduces the size of the image by 50 per cent.

  5. 5

    Click the "File" menu and select "Print." Select a printer and then click "Print." The iPhone image now should be printed.
