I take screenshots of many things like bills and recipes which go to gallery, but the phone tells the printer to print it like a picture on glossy paper. I can tell the printer to use plain paper but I can't change it printing in photo mode which uses lots of ink and is slow! How to print from gallery in document printing, fast and less ink usage.

If you're using your camera app it's always going to save the image as a high resolution photo. If you wish to save an imagine as a document to print, you'll want an app that will save the item as a pdf. I use Microsoft's OfficeLens.

If you have a copy on your phone, why do you need a printed hard copy?

Maybe in the printer's settings you can tell it to print in draft mode & in black and white mode too if you want. Printer settings, not phone.

Thank you. That is helpful. What I can't understand is we just upgraded to S23 from an S9. I've always used screen shots for recites of building permits and such and it always went to gallery and I printed them for business needs. But not now. Thank you for the info.
