How to print pictures the way I want

Hi again
when I try to print a picture fitting the whole paper,some of the picture on the picture will be missing.
There is a fit to frame option in the printing menu.But as I said,it won't fit the image correctly and some of the picture won't be printed.I mean it will keep the ratio of the picture
The question i wanna ask is that how can I fit the pictures the way and want and how can I disable this ratio keeping thing?

Thanks in advance

I'm assuming you're using the windows picture viewer. Check to see if the paper size is set correctly.

That failing, you could try printing them from Paint or another program of your choosing. If using another program yields the same results, make sure you have the correct printer drivers and perhaps try reinstalling them.

It is a function of your printer. Go to Control Panel, open Devices and Printers, click on your default printer (the one with the green check mark) and see its settings for printing photos.

For printing, IMHO, the easiest and most intuitive is Picassa, but it really depends on your own preferences. I tend to use either my own printer's software or IrfanView (which has a very complicated printing interface for the novice.)

Stick to the simple first and when you feel more confident, go with something more sophisticated.

you can try Paint.net

It's basically windows paint on steroids, and it's free

I think the OP is trying to fit a picture into an A4 sheet, filling the entire sheet without loosing any parts of the picture. This is easy to do in something like Adobe Elements. Open the image, Go to Image, Resize, Image Resize, Uncheck the "Restrain Proportions" box and set the image size to 29.7cm x 21.0cm Click OK. Then go to print and if your printer support it click "Borderless Printing" . Select paper and quality etc and "Print". \
\\\\don't know if any of the freebie programs support this but Elements and Corel Photo Shop do. They are not free though

If you're using MS Office, you can use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to print your photos.(It's already on your system + is a GREAT photo editing app.) It has several automatic settings that not only select the printed photo size for you, but also ensures that the entire photo will be in the printed picture.

Hi Sue
I don't use Office but would this not crop some parts of the photo? If the aspect ratio of the picture is different from the aspect ratio of a piece of A4 picture then when you make the long side fill the paper then the short side must be either too big or too small. Too big and it will crop the extra off. Too small and you will get margins top and bottom! You must have a program that will "distort" the original to fit and that means the prog. is capable of using the "Constrain Proportions" in the off position!In video work it is called "non-square pixel editing". You literally stretch the individual pixels. Quite painful on a cold day

Have just seen that you can turn off the aspect ratio in Office. Sorry my mistake

If you turn off the "Keep Aspect Ratio" option then your image will be either stretched (horizontal image) or squashed (Vertical image) when printed.
