Print to PDF
I'm having trouble printing a project that I've just finished. It's landscape and whenever I try to print it, it prints out a stretched portrait. Since I thought maybe it was an issue with the printer, I thought I would try printing to a pdf. I have Cutepdf installed and it works with other programs but I don't see it as a possible printer in Gimp. Any help would be appreciated. I've been searching and it looks like Gimp may have some printing issues in general but I was reading old posts so maybe that's no longer an issue.

I posted this on another Gimp forums website but I haven't found a solution and I thought you guys might be able to help.

RE: Print to PDF
Assuming that you are not going to install linux and reap the benefits of gimp-gutenprint. Cool

In windows much depends on the printer driver provided by the printer manufacturer. Some are better than others.

I don't have a problem with the gimp print plugin these days but it used to be in times past that you would use some other application as an intermediary for printing, even if it was M$ Word.

I would try something free such as XnView or Irfanview and see if they print any better. Certainly XnView has several options for placing the image on the paper.
