How Do I Use Cloud Printing?

5- How to use cloud printing


The expansion in the world of printers has really taken the world by storm. Today, it is not difficult to find a sophisticated printer to suit your specific printing needs. Gone are the days when you had to operate your printers manually to get printouts– today, you can handle things well without having to have any physical access to your printer. That’s what cloud printing is all about.


Considering the advantages of cloud printing, many companies have already switched to it. It is actually a technology that you can use to access printers over a network through cloud computing. There are two basic ways of using cloud printing. First of all, you can use consumer-based cloud printing where you will be using an application that connects you with any cloud-enabled home printers that different you own. In this way, you can rely on digital media, which serves as your primary communications tool – it also allows you to create a printout only when you need any content in a physical form.


You may also want to take advantage of professional cloud printing that enables companies, publishers, and content owners to produce several printouts of heir digital publications by using networks of production facilities by means of cloud computing technology. It is in fact the ‘ad-hoc’ transformation of digital content into physical forms, which could be 2-dimensional or even 3-dimensional.


There are several service providers available online that let you connect with cloud ready printers. By using their service, you don’t have to use any PC connections, print drivers, etc – they even allow you to print from your mobile devices. To enjoy this wireless printing, you need to setup that service on your particular model.


Once you have enabled the service, you can use cloud-printing technology in different ways. For starters, you can use it to print your documents from different online storage sites, such as Evernote and Dropbox – you can print your PDF files, JPG images, and Office documents. You can also use the service and technology to print photos from Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites, and you can do it while on the go. And of course, you can cloud print from different online photo albums on Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, and other such sites.
