[F] Troubleshooting

Issue: Why is my printer not listed under Printer but I can print using my Photo Booth Software?

Solution: Even though software like Darkroom Booth is able to print using your printer, you need to install the drivers for your specific printer so that Windows & other software can use the printer. Please contact your printer manufacturer or retailer for assistance on how to install your printer drivers. The #1 rule when it comes to printing with PicPic Social is that, if Windows can print than PicPic Social can print.
