    Troubleshooting Air Photo Printing

    Can I print from my iPhone directly without using Air Photo?

    No, you can’t. If that was possible, there would be no need to write this guide.

    If you can’t connect Air Photo app on your iPhone with Air Photo Server on your computer, the firewall might be blocking it. In such a case, you need to add Air Photo Server to the exception list.

    The print button is available only when you connect Air Photo app on your iPhone to the Air Photo Server on your computer. In this case, you first need to connect the app with the server. If you are using a Wi-Fi router, then both iPhone and computer must be connected to the same router in order for the app to work properly.
