TWO BASIC STEPS
Once you are satisfied with the look of your image select the HP print plug-in in the file menu. If you are using CS3 simply use the print command. There are two basic steps to follow....
The first step is to select the color management to be handled by Photoshop and pick the correct ICC paper profile for the paper at hand. You will again select the same rendering intent that you used in soft proofing.

The second step is to go to the HP printer driver dialog by clicking on the Page Setup button in the Photoshop print dialog. Here you will select the paper type and size, whether you want to print with a border or borderless, and the media tray to be used. Here is a screen shot of the main tab in this dialog.
Notice that in the "Print in Grayscale" drop down I selected "off" for this toned selenium image of an old heater. I used this setting since I did not want a neutral black and white print; obviously I want the color tone to come through. If I were printing a neutral black and white image I would print in grayscale.
I have been testing this printer for a number of weeks and have made many prints but for this review I selected two images for testing using three paper types. All three papers are sold under the HP brand and are very high quality media. I chose HP Hahnemüle Smooth Fine Art, HP Advanced Photo Paper – satin matt, and HP Professional Satin Photo Paper.
