How do I print from a non-Air printer with my iPad?

I purchased a HP office jet 4500 wireless printer and I want to print from my iPad. I have DropBox installed, thinking that would be the answer, but just ran into the same problem where my iPad cannot find a printer.

    i would like to print pictures from my HP Photosmart c510 printer.  I,ve downloaded several apps, but none allow me to print an actual photograph fron the photograph paper tray. Do you know of any device from Apple or a third party that would give me this capability?

       The hp app doesn't work at all. Not sure why. You would think it would work with their latest printer, but apparently the c510 isn't supported.

    You can either use the offical HP ePrint App to directly print from your iPad or use a hacked AirPrint install and print via your computer.
