What is "DPOF" and how does it work?

DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Form. It is a format for digital printing using removable media. The format specifies which frames are to be printed, the number of prints, print size, index print, date and time, title and text entered, trimming, rotation and user information. DPOF creates a file, independent from the image files, named Autprint.mrk on a memory medium. DPOF compatible home printers and photo finishing print systems would automatically print the digital images based on the DPOF file information on the media.

The P-200 is compatible with DPOF specifications. Image selection, quantity, trimming, and date/time imprint can be designated. When a SmartMedia or PC Card Adapter is inserted into the printer, DPOF information is read from the media and image selection is performed automatically. You also have an option to cancel DPOF information.
