Microsoft Photos for Windows 10 Mobile grabs Print and Living Image menu support

Windows 10 Mobile users can grab a new update to the Photos app, which is now live in the Store. The build numbers jump from 16.201.16372 to 16.317.14282 and with it come a few new interesting features.

When viewing an image in the Photos app users will now have an option for Print by using the ellipsis menu (…). Additionally, if the photo is a Living Image (i.e. motion was detected during the capture) a secondary option to toggle the view as a Living Image or a still one is given. While Living Images was always there users now have finer control over how they are viewed with this update.

When choosing to print Windows 10 Mobile users can send the photo directly to a wirelessly connected printer. If one is not detected, you can use a convenient Print to PDF feature. Options for print include:

  • Orientation – Portrait or Landscape
  • Size – Letter, Tabloid, Legal, Statement, A4, etc.
  • Photo size – Full page, or various aspect ratios
  • Fit – Fill page, shrink to fit

Smaller changes with today's app update bring a Microsoft OneDrive header under Settings and a hyperlink to Third Party Notices under About this app.

You can also now see your OneDrive usage (used versus total) under Settings as well.

Grab the update now and let us know what you think and if you find anything else!
