Step 2

Size the photo you want to use. To do this, open up the photo on your computer and size to at least 4 inches on each edge. Make sure the photo will be slightly larger than the embroidery hoop but not too large that it cuts off important elements in the photograph.

Place the cotton muslin face down in your HP Officejet Pro 8610 AiO Printer printer tray and print.
