Once in the hot folder, the images are automatically resized, and the printing process begins immediately. This feature is added as a built-in function within the software update and is not the same as the DNP Hot Folder Print Utility app.

Supported file types are: JPG/JPEG, TIF/TIFF PNG, and BMP. The chart shows all the possible print sizes.

Function options include:

  • Default quantity
  • Paper type
  • Use default borders
  • Partial matte
  • Keep photos in archive for X amount of days

The user may also add a selected background theme, or use an image as a background in addition to the plain background. These features supports standard simplex print sizes.
