How to print a small photo centered on page
Angry I am so frustrated!!! I am fairly new to GIMP but have used other photo editing programs over the years. What I am trying to do is print a small 1" by 1.5" photo in the center of a 4" x 6" piece of photo paper. For some weird reason that I cannot figure out it prints the small photo off the edge and cuts half of it off. I have changed the setting numerous times ... from portrait to landscape, two on a page, etc. and it still prints off the edge. Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm using GIMP for Windows and have a Canon MG5220 printer.

Gimp printing in Windows has never been good. A Win XP Gimp 2.8 / Canon ip4500 here insists on reverting to A4 size whatever you set up. No consolation for you, but It is ok in linux where you can set up the gutenprint plugin.

I would save your frustration, life is too short and use some other application for printing. Irfanview is free and not bad.

Okay, thanks for the advice. I have Irfanview but never used it for printing photos. Will give it a try.

OMG! That was so easy with Irfanview! Only took a couple of minutes! I spent an hour or more trying to print it with 3 other programs... GIMP, Picasa and Paint Shop. Thanks again!
