It will be there when your country uses metric sizes. If your country uses non metric sizes, what applies at least to the North America region, and you want to print DIN size photos and paper, just switch the regional settings of your iPhone to a region with metric sizes, for example English UK.

Important note: The DIN A6 photo format is covered at the present time by PhotoPrint LT only.

↺ March 6th, 2013—PhotoPrint LT sometimes still leads to white Pages

Logo PhotoPrint LTWith PhotoPrint LT, the free version of our iPhone photo printing app PhotoPrint, occasionally the printer output is just a blank sheet of paper.

If you come across this problem, which occurs most often if you use small photo sizes such as DIN A8 or 4.4 x 6.6 cm (1.73 x 2.59 in), purchase PhotoPrint Pro and do not upgrade PhotoPrint LT via InApp purchase to full functionality. We will try to solve this problem for PhotoPrint LT soon.

↺ December 20th, 2012—Why does PhotoPrint print blank Pages?

PhotoPrint2 TweetThe latest version of PhotoPrint sometimes prints blank pages. We found that this may occur if you use small photo sizes such as DIN A8 or 4.4 x 6.6 cm (1.73 x 2.59 in). The good news is, you can reuse the paper — but the print is definitely missing. We have fixed the problem, and the new version has already been uploaded to Apple for review, so it should be released shortly.


↺ November 30th, 2012—PhotoPrint Pro Version 2.0 in the AppStore

PhotoPrint2 Tweet

You can now send combined pictures (as a small picture) to Facebook or Twitter, or you can email it (requires iOS 6). Also, sending as a PDF has been reworked so that the PDF is much smaller. We added support for the larger iPhone 5 screen as well.

All news in this version:

  • A big problem got fixed: printing of large pictures could lead to crashes (especially on the iPad 1).
  • Share to Facebook, Twitter or mail combined pictures.
  • Support for the larger screen of the iPhone 5.
  • A bunch of background colors have been added.
  • Improved: mail as PDF file
  • Improved open as PDF. To generate the PDF we now use the screen image, which is much smaller and therefore can be sent even faster than before.
  • Fixed: stability problem when printing large pictures.

↺ August 1st, 2012—PhotoPrint LT Version 1.6 Is Out

PhotoPrint Ausschnitt documentaPhotoPrint, our iPhone app that prints your photos in the size and on the paper you want, is now more stable and more robust.

Last time, we received emails and in the AppStore mentioning with PhotoPrint. We now have the update of PhotoPrint LT, version 1.6, in the AppStore that addresses the problems. PhotoPrint Pro version 1.6 was released earlier.

Briefly outlined, the problem is that there is a timing inaccuracy in the iOS printing part that PhotoPrint did not pay attention to and therefore appeared to be frozen and no longer working when it was actually waiting for response. When PhotoPrint asks the iOS to show the printing screen — a screen that slides in from the bottom and lets you select the printer and the print copies — it may take several minutes until the screen comes into sight without having received any messages about the time it will take. In version 1.6 we improved the feedback behavior so that in all cases when PhotoPrint uses system resources of the iOS, it will clearly indicate that there is action in the background to wait for.

If you have comments or questions about PhotoPrint or our other apps, please send us an email or give us a call. Do not write a poor review in the Apple AppStore, because we, as the owner of the software, are not able to comment, help or explain on the spot to any of the AppStore reviews. This is a deficit of Apple's AppStore that the developer community around the world is really unhappy about.
