Yes you can just stick your memory card in and print photos without hooking it up to a PC. At least that's what it says on the manufacturer’s website. Below is the link if you would like to check it out yourself:

Also from the manufacture’s website:

Check with Canon on this and make sure they still support this printer with updates. And that it supports your operating system upgrades and changes. Check the compatibility issues carefully. Canon has a $25.00 replacement upgrade policy if it should stop working or they stop supporting it with upgrades. They replaced mine for $25.00 with an upgraded one that I later gave away. I'm replacing it with a newer Canon shortly from Walmart again.
