public void startPrintImage() {
    Intent intent = new Intent("org.androidprinting.intent.action.PRINT"); 
    intent.setData(dataUri); // image to be printed, mime type of the image (must be of type "image/*")

Example intent filter

<activity ...>
        <action android:name="org.androidprinting.intent.action.PRINT" />
