Though it doesn't bring any extras to the table, Hot Folder Printer provides a quicker way of sending image files to the printer. Its interface, while nothing to write home about, is simple, straightforward, and displays all of your installed printers and created hot folders. The program prompts you to create a folder that serves as a drop-off point for images you'd like to print. It's easy to use, although the printing process begins after a slight delay rather than immediately. We like that it supports several image formats including JPEG, BMP, PNG, and TIFF. Additionally, we found Hot Folder Printer automatically resizes images with large dimensions. Beware: the images placed in the folder are deleted after printing begins, so we recommend users have backup copies. Additionally, you won't find any image-editing tools nor will you be able to determine the layout of the finished product. The 15-day trial period is long enough to test this application's capabilities. Users won't be overly impressed, but Hot Folder Printer does adequately handle simple image printing.
