The glossy photo cards have perforations at weird dimensions and I can't set up the print screen to line up the photo to print correctly. I can't choose the size for "Glossy Photo Cards" on the print screen. Is there a software download from Canon for this? I searched the Canon site, but it is very poor design. Thanks much, Chuck Greene

You have to match your print settings with the correct type of media used !
When you print, set the preferences, set to PHOTO quality and not draft, set paper type to PHOTO PAPER, or GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER whichever - If you select wrong media type your colors might be off. Select the settings that match the closest to your media. If you use paper use "plain paper" setting, if you use glossy photo paper, use "glossy photo paper" as settings and PHOTO quality.
I recommend use you use inkjet PHOTO paper, glossy, you can use HP or EPSON or even the cheap LIKON ones work amazing for me, they should be able to dry quickly, if they don't you are not using the correct settings.
By your description above it looks like you are using economy or draft mode - NOT good for photo paper.
Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.
For this paper
Select this paper type setting
Plain paper, sheets
Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper
Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper
Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper
Epson Ultra Glossy
Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper
Epson Premium Glossy

I can't find anywhere on Canon's information that it has the ability to perforate as a setting.
This sounds like that is something dragging from the print head that is causing it.
I would take it back to the shop you got it from, and have them replace it.
Make sure to take an example of what it is doing when it prints.
the sensors cant see paper on the perforated part/side. same goes for transparencies, the printer can't see it
