Moving photos from iPads…

You can easily copy photos* from iPads (excluding the MiLE room iPad) to the ‘Temp Share (V:)‘ drive on the server without using the file explorer application or needing to log on by using the following steps – see the video below.

  • Select your photos (without selecting any videos)
  • Press the share icon (square with an upward arrow on the top left of the screen)
  • Press the print icon
  • Press the printer and select ‘Save to temp share’ (if not already selected).
  • Press print and you’re done!

* Note: this will only work with photos, it will not work with videos.

Printing from iPads!

We can now print from iPads to the reception printer.

  1. Open the app you want to print from. Find the print option by tapping the app’s share icon ( sharearrow or share ) or settings icon ( settingsor wrench). If you can’t find the print option, check the app’s User Guide or Help section. (Not all apps support AirPrint).
  2. Tap (print) or Print.
  3. Choose printer (tap on select printer as needed) and opt for ‘RICOH MP C3503’
  4. Choose the number of copies
  5. Tap ‘Print’

While printing you can typically watch your print job(s) or cancel them via the App Switcher.  Double-click the iPads home button and tap the printer icon.

(Printing from iPads usually requires a special ‘Airprint’ network enabled printer, which the Ricoh printers we have are not – we are using some software to emulate this, which seems to work reasonably well).

Unfortunately, printing is still just as costly!
