PictBridge Dilemma
Apr 27, 2013


What need seems so obvious to me that can Not Imagine search engines can NOT FIND even a discussion on Why it is Not available. 
My gran-daughter was wanting a way to get 'instant' pictures like the old Polaroid.  (The cost of film is ridiculous!)  Found a portable 4x6 photo printer at a thrift shop.  When first tried to make it work found that the USB port Is-NOT.  Something called PictBridge ONLY.
Yes she can use an SD card to transfer pictures from the computer.  Technologically it must be possible to have a program for the computer to 'emulate' a PictBridge camera;  use these printers directly.
No search has found that to be possible.  Hopefully someone reading this forum has heard of this being possible and can point me toward that solution.
Thank you,
