How To Use The Instax SHARE Printer App

We all know and love instax cameras, right? It’s hard to beat the excitement of watching your new print pop out, and to see the image come alive in front of your eyes, but with the instax SHARE printer app, it’s now even easier to create and keep instax prints.

If you’ve taken a great picture with your phone or FUJIFILM X Series camera, all you need to do to create cute instax prints instantly is to get your hands on an instax SHARE SP-2 or SHARE SP-3 printer, load in some film, download the app and you’re ready to start printing. Here’s our guide to help you get started…


Getting Started With The Instax SHARE Printer App

When you first download and open the instax SHARE app, then you’ll need to select which printer you have.

     

Don’t worry if you have both types of printers as you can switch between models later on by accessing the Printer Model Setting in the Settings menu. Select the one you’ll be using now and click ‘OK’.

To start browsing for photos, click on ‘Select from the gallery’, this allows you to view all of the images stored on your smartphone.

There are also options to print images from your Instagram or Facebook accounts, too, so you can share with your friends those party moments from social media straight away. Simply tap the icon and then log in to your social media account. There are even options to print images from Dropbox, Google Photos and Flickr. Also, did you know that if you’ve got a compatible FUJIFILM X Series camera, such as the X-T100, you can even print direct from your camera to the printer?

Make sure your printer is turned on, as well as the Wi-Fi on your smartphone. Some Android users may also need to turn on their GPS location setting. When searching for your printer, it should show up as INSTAX followed by the serial number, which is on the bottom of your printer. Once you’ve selected your photo, you’ll be taken to the preview page. If you want to print your picture straight away, hit ‘Connect and Print’ and wait for the magic to happen!
