Question about HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One - multifunction fax / copier / printer / scanner color
Picks up paper, but thinks that I am attempting to print a 4x6 pic instead of a regular size copy
HP's are notorious for not recognising paper sizes. Especially if you are out of the USA. HP printers are default set for USA paper. I have to set mine every now and again to the UK paper size system before it will print within the borders.
Go to paper selection etc and set the paper sizes before you print. Eventually, they do memorise the settings, as odd as that sounds.

try to find the margin settings of the application that you are printing with. If margins are setup in a wrong way it will print anywhere it likes.
Aso see the paper size. e.g. A4, A3 etc.
I think you should take a normal a4 paper and print it and see the size of the image and the size of the document that you have created.
Another way to test it is to copy the image(content) only and paste it in some other application like MS Word or something else and try to print it in 4x6.
If it is an image and you can copy it to MS Paint then do it and cut everything else (crop the image accordig to its' size), then print.
Remember to place the paper on the right hand side of the paper tray. (You can do the reverse also if it required.)
