I have several photos from a digital camera that I want to print without any cropping or borders. I do not seem to be choosing the wrong paper size or anything and the preview page looks OK. When the photo has printed the last 12mm of the image is not printed leaving a white band on the photo.
I have tried several different programs (Canon zoombrowser ex that came with the camera, HP photo and imaging, just opening the image and attempting to print using the ordinary memu settings). I am selecting borderless 6x4 photo size and 'other inkjet paper' (its a pack of Kodak paper). Can you tell me what is wrong please??

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.
Printing high quality photos using an inkjet printer is not only possible, but affordable too. Top notch quality relies on a few factors: the right paper, the right ink and the right settings. Read on to find out how to print photos with an inkjet printer.
1.Use a good digital camera. For 4x6 and 8x10 prints, you will want a camera with at least two or three megapixels.
2.Buy photo paper. Spend the extra few dollars to get high-gloss photo paper that is designed for your printer.
3.Use photo ink. High quality photos take high quality ink. Do not use the same ink that you use for documents.
4.Optimize your settings. Select "File > Print" then click "Properties" and find the preferences or quality tab. Set the quality to the highest or choose a photo preset.
5.Edit photos on your computer. Import your photos from a CD or your digital camera. See your camera's manual to find out how.
6.Crop and resize. Cut out anything extra in the background that you do not want and resize the picture so it will fit on the page.
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.
The top-loading sheet feeder accommodates approximately 150 sheets
(depending on weight), and the front feeder is good for around 100
sheets. Actual media sizes supported by the main feeder (top-loading) include A4, B5,
A5, Letter, Legal, Envelopes (DL size or Commercial 10), 10x15cm(4" x 6"),
10x18cm, 13x18cm, 20x25cm, and Credit Card (54x86mm), while the front
feeder is less accommodating with just A4, Letter, and B5.
Most digital cameras have an aspect ratio of 4x3.
35mm cameras have an aspect ratio of 3x2.
6x4 photopaper also has an aspect ratio of 3x2.
Therefore you don't get cropping when printing from 35mm film.
To make the picture fill out the 6 inches, the digital footprint has to be 6" by 4.5".
So .5 inches is removed in the process.
If you can find a processor that will print 5.333 x 4 on the 6 x 4 paper, there would be no clipping necessary.
Since you have Photoshop, you can crop the photo to a 3 x 2 ratio. That way you control what is cut.
I use Photoshop Elements and when I use the Rectangular Marquee Tool, I set Style to "Fixed Aspect Ratio" and Width to 3, and Height to 2.
