Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
The only way I know to help you is to suggest a software approach. The reason I asked for your OS is to know whether or not a Mac solution (which I can personally vouch for) or a Windows solution (which I don't know for sure, but believe will work.
What you need to do is to change the images to that 1.5:1 ratio by adding blank white (or black, or whatever you want) to the long dimension. This can be done easily using the batch capabilities of a program like GraphicConverter (Mac), Irfanview (PC) or Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (both).
If you are like me, then you want to save the expanded images to a new location with a new name.
If you tell me what software you have, I can give you step by step instructions for GraphicConverter or Photoshop.
A second alternative would of course be to find a place that can make prints in the same ratio as your images. The problem is that this somewhat unpopular print ratio. Oddly, it is a very popular image ratio for inexpensive cameras.
A third alternative approach would be to just take the potential cropping into account when you take the picture in the first place. You could even place some tape over the parts of the LCD that will get cut off.
Please let me know if I can be of any more help.

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.)
