    Default Printing Photos

    Hey!
    I've got a few photos on my computer, and a few frames to fill...and i wanna use photopaper which i have copies of...and many of u would know its soooo expensive...thats why mistakes are really wanting 2 be avoided...
    when i open the photo in picture itpro...it enlarges it to actually fit the page, and to actually get it perfect size for frame u gotta go to print settings and change size to frame size..then it will print in middle of page for you...that is really annoying coz its like a waste of the rest of the page...BUT if i resize it myself...i always get it wrong because i cant get the measurements right to go in frame...
    Is there some sort of easier way to do this?....
    I have Photoshop 6 if that would do anything...i dont really have knowledge of Photoshop to actually use it..but its annoying..
    the frames are like 10cm x 10cm and some are 12x 10 or something like that...

    Hope someone can help If u know something that came with xphome..that can do the job..tell me coz i have xp home

    Hear soon

    Hi CS, I know what you mean, with the price of good photo paper.

    I use Adobe PhotoDelux which will resize the image to the cm dimensions you require. Well for the screen display anyway, but not sure about the printing size.

    To do what you want, I use an early version of ACDsee viewer. In this when 'print' is selected, one can position the image in any one of 9 positions on the A4 paper, & resize as required. There are many viewers available, and maybe the free popular irfanview viewer will do the same.

    I dont have Photoshop, but I imagine it could do what you want. Maybe some Photoshop users can advise you.

    Good luck.

    Photoshop should do it OK.
    Try the following:
    1. Open a new file, size of A4 paper, that is 21cm wide by 29.7 high. Use 300 pixels per inch which should be K for your size photos.
    2. Open your photo file (if not already open) copy the part you want to print (maybe all of it) and paste it onto the new A4 size file.
    3. It probably won’t be the right size, so right click on it and use free transform to position it and resize it. The new A4 file should have the cms along horiz and vertical axes so you can get the size you want (Hold down shift key when resizing to keep horizontal and vertical dimensions in same proportion.
    4. To print it you will probably first have to flatten the image (go to menu – layer – flatten image)
    5. You can fit other photos to fill in the A4 page by the same way if you like. Free transform allows you to rotate them, change portrait to landscape, and all that.

    Post back if this works, or even if it doesn’t, so can figure out why not.

    sorry..
    was working on the photos...in photoshop 6...

    and i veiw it in 100% scale on the program..so i know the exact size of it when it prints...and for example one of the photos is 6cm in length,...then i printed it...and the example picture wasnt 6cm length..it shrunk down to 2

    and i used normal paper to test it..to see if right size and all...so i dont waste photopaper...
    the arrangement comes perfect..its the size...

    OK, CS, ya getting there.. I know it's not easy, but the photoshop you have I believe will do everyting you wish.

    But, after my last post, you did not, look, see, about the ACDSee program I mentioned..

    OK, fair enough, thats your call.

    Good luck.

    Well, CS..As I said, I was using an earlier version of ACDsee, to print as you required.

    There are recent versions of ACDsee that are excellent, but I believe cost.

    Have a look on google for ACDsee

    Photoshop 6
    -once you have opened your picture
    -Select File - Print Options
    -change the height or width to what you need in cm
    -uncheck center image
    -now you can drag your image to where you want to print it on the page
