Help with printing photos.
« on: Sunday 19 March 06 00:13 GMT (UK) »
When I come to print a photo,it sometimes only fills half of the preview box.How do you get it to fill the box,without having to stretch it,and leaving the image as if it was like a Lowry painting!

You dont say which prog you are using, but you should be able to find "image size" in a menu. Reste this oi what you want. The image may deteriorate when you enlarge it so be careful.

Hello William

If you're printing from Irvanview, then a box similar to that shown below will appear. If you click on the 'centre image' and 'best fit' or size you wnat to print at, it should be OK.
When I first put this image in, it was a tiny little postage stamp-size in the top left corner.
