On this page we examine the on-screen menus and prompts.
Everything is quite easy to follow and there are some nice animated diagrams to show you how to install an new printer cartridge, for example.
Once a card is loaded you are shown the first available image.
By pressing the Select button...
...that image is marked for printing.
Images that require it...
...can be rotated. Note the green lines that indicate where the image will be cropped.
Selective cropping is also supported.
This represents the maximum crop setting.
Print quality can be set to best (Photo).
Medium quality (and faster printing) (Normal).
Draft mode is the fastest but print quality suffers.
Some unusual media sizes are supported.
A6 paper is supported, for example.
But most of the time 6x4 inches will be used.
Besides full colour mode, there is a black and white greyscale mode.
For convenience, you can automatically print all the images on a card in one batch.
This is what you see when an ink low warning happens. We found that the warning gives you plenty of time to buy a new cartridge.
Animated on-screen help makes the process of installing a new cartridge easy.
Finally, you are given the advisable option of letting the printer align itself.
Lexmark have started well with its on-screen user interface, but the lack of a multiple-thumbnail selection option to speed things up is certainly felt.
