The application you need to use in order to connect the iPad with your printer is called AirPrint. As it is not specified, AirPrint works with a limited number of printers but with the big numbers of updates, there are constantly added new printers to the supported list. The AirPrint utility is embedded into your operating system. For a full list of the AirPrint enabled printers, please, visit this following link.

Please transfer the files you plan to print from your iPad to your computer first. Then print them out with the printer. I use Syncios to copy the files from iPad to PC. It is free and very very easy. You can have a try.

For example : Transfer photos from iPhone to computer (or Mac)

enter image description here

Select My devices on the top menu bar´╝îthen click Photos on the left panel. You will be able to select album to preview and print via the Album List on the right. After selecting photos, tap on Export to copy photos to PC.

Print iPhone Pictures via computer

enter image description here

After the transferring process was done, right-click any of the selected photos and choose Print from the pop-up menu. You are going to see a new windows, from which you are allowed to choose your printer, paper size, quality, paper type, photo layout, and the number of times to print each picture . The last step is to click Print.
