HP DESKJET F4135 - CANNOT PRINT PHOTO WITHOUT BORDER
I want to print a 5" x 7" photo on 5" x 7" photo paper, without borders. However, when trying to print using any application, I am getting a small border on the top, bottom, and left hand side of the photo, and a 1/2" border on the right hand side.
How can I eliminate these unwanted borders, and print a photo that covers the entire paper surface?

First use a photo processing programme (like say Photoshop or PS Elements - or if you have not got that (can be expensive) get the free Faststone Image Viewer and size the image to twice the paper size you want, then use the crop tool to select half the image and save that as a file with a name where you can find it again. Do the same with the other half. You will now have two files, each half of the paper size. As they will have small borders, print and trim the borders, so you can then mount side by side to achieve what you want. I would advise to NOT try and print without borders - that can introduce other problems - just accept having to trim the small borders from normal printing.
the 6'' paper is not the problem at all, you might need to crop the image to 4x6 size before printing since most point and shoot camera will not take the photo 4x6 size but 4+ inches, thus the border. richard
This is because the image is of a different aspect ratio than the paper. That is, if your image's dimension is 8x12 inch and you are trying to print it on an 8x10-inch paper, the printer will adjust the longer side to 10 inches. Hence the shorter side will become less than 8 inches. This will lead to white border on the shorter side. If you try to adjust this, the longer side will fall out of the paper and hence in the print, this portion will be cut.
So please understand that this is normal. One option to prevent this is to crop the image to fit the paper size.
Your expert patiently talked me through several possibilities. Finally, in the print set-up window, I clicked on Properties in the upper right and made all my printing choices there. I still got a border, even though I didn't want one, but it was all the way around the photo...not on two sides, and the photo was not chopped off.
