size of image in print
When I scan an image, in this case a standard A4 size, and do modifications with Gimp I am making progress in getting a reasonably good result but when I try to print out the final image I would like it to be precisely the exact same size as the original . As it turns out the scan becomes slightly smaller than the original and when I print to A4 paper I get an ugly border. which is either a hard line paper edge or slightly contrasting color (not the pure white original border around my picture). Can anyone tell me how to change the size of the image once my scanner puts it into Gimp so that it will correspond with the original, or even ovelap by a tiny amount, to eliminate the awful edges. Do I adjust the size of the canvas or the image, or both, and if so what are the tools to use. I've tried some Gimp tools that say they adjust the size of the image but they seem to shrink it in relation to the canvas instead of expanding it. Intuitively, since the image consists of pixels, it would seem there should be a simple way to increase the spaces between all the pixels so that the image increases in size. However I'm discoverinng that Gimp can be quite counterintuitive. Thanks in advance for anybody's help on this.
