Windows 7: How to print pictures the way I want

18 Feb 2011   #11


Actually, you can print an image either way, because MS Picture Manager provides a box that you can click that says "Fit picture to frame." So you can experiment with which is better, fitting the picture to the frame or not. I printed an old black and white image for you as an example. The 1st image is the original photo which is very wide, and when I printed it I UNchecked the "Fit picture to frame" box. So, the entire image was printed. The aspect ratio was not changed, but it printed in a "letter box" format --- similar to the way very wide screen movies are shown on a tv screen. (By the way, the photo is too light because I set it that way --- that has nothing to do with the printing software.)

Precisely what I said, when you print this way you get a border top and bottom which is what the OP didn't want!

HP Printer dialogs have a function for "borderless" prints. If you own an HP Printer, from the printer dialog select "Preferences", (or "Properties," depending on your situation). Another dialog appears. Under 'Size" click on "other" which will show you options for printing borderless photos of various sizes.

These same dialogs (or variations) are also present with Canon and Lexmark printers.

The print layout of photos is really more a function of the printer than of the photo software.
