Click here for NEW 2.0 VERSION! For Windows 7 and 8 (32-64bit)


The perfect companion to the DS40, DS80, and RX1 dye-sub photo printers. Perfect for the event photographer, this utility helps manage the workflow while you focus on the shot! ( for Windows 8, 7, XP (32 or 64 bit )

• HFP accommodates numerous print sizes for DS40, RX1, and DS80.
• HRP archives ALL of the images that it prints.
• Ability to create custom borders, edit borders, and adjust color.

 So what exactly is this? Hot Folder Print Utility™(HFP) is a utility that monitors file folders for compatible image files to send to an attached printer for output. The folders are named according to the size print that will be produced. HFP prints a single copy of each image and then moves the image file to an archive folder. HFP supports adding borders to prints using the HFP Admin controls. HFP is designed to work with only DNP DS and RX series printers.

1) Load Photos… 2) Add Borders… 3)Print!

HFP can resize, rotate, and add borders or logos to photos taken at the prized event. It detects image files, queues setup by print size, combines them with a border, and automatically sends to a DNP printer for output. HFP then files the images in an archived folder for future use. Other capabilities include border creation, editing, and color adjustment.

Easy as 1-2-3!


Image sent to pre-determined folder that you assign.

Seamless with Batch Printing! Place images in HFP folder and the entire batch auto prints with your pre-selected event border or logo. Images are auto-rotated and resized.

Your photos will be automatically resized and rotated to fit the paper settings and all standard sizes are supported including 4×6″, 5×7″, 6×8″, 6×9″, 8×10″, and 8×12″. Borders can include logos, descriptive text, call to action messaging, or your business contact information.


HFP operates in a one-to-one printing mode with one printer only; HFP does not support two or more printers, either of the same type, or of mixed type (ie: DS40 and DS80, DS40 and RX1, etc). HFP does not support 2×6″ prints.
