I am having problems printing images. The images are 5x7" in the image window, but when I print them they are printed 8X10." I am using GIMP 2.4.6 and my printer is an HP PSC 1200. The printer works OK with all other programs. Thank you for your help. Ray

Print set up in the program


You do not specify what Epson Printer you are using. I have an Epson WorkStation. The Document Format in the Principal (Main) tab of the printer parameters lists among other format, a personalized (custom) format where you can choose the dimensions in mm or inches.

Setting dpi on my nikon d3100


DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification and is irrelevant to the camera. The camera puts a value into the field simply because it has to put something there. The DPI is set by the printing program when it prints a picture. A picture printed at 4x6 will obviously have more dots per inch than the same picture printed at 8x10.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

Faded printing on 5x7 size paper


Sure. One of the papers is probably clay based (Shiny) and one is rag based (rough and dull). Clay based produces the most vibrant inkjet images and rag based produces the best laser printer images. I bet the two papers are different in composition. I see this all the time.

How to enlarge scanned photo.


Set your scanner to scan at 600dpi.  That will give you a 8x12 image at 300dpi (print quality- your image never needs to be more than 300dpi).

Then use your favourite image editor to crop the image to 8x10.  If you don't have a favourite image editor, XNView (free) will do it:
http://www.xnview.com/

-Open the image in XNView
-Right click on the image, select "Set Selection Ratio --> 5:4"
-With your left mouse button, drag a square on the image...this will automatically scale so it chops the unwanted 2" off
-When the square is selecting the bit you want to keep, select "Edit --> Crop"
-Then we need to change the image from 600dpi to 300 dpi:
-Select "Image --> Resize"
-Uncheck the "Resample" and "Keep print size"
-"Keep ratio" should be checked
-Change the 600 in the "Units" box to 300; the setting unit should be "Pixels per Inch"
-Print

When I print pics off my pic file, the pic comes out in a mirror image? I am using a HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One Printer. Also when I try to print 4x6 pics from my files using proper HP paper, it tells...


Hello,

When you go to print something next time, click on Preferences on the Print window. Click on the Advanced tab. There should be a Mirror Image choice and it probably says ON. Click on the ON and change it to OFF with the drop-down menu. Click OK. That should correct the mirror image problem.

As for the paper, I have a hard time printing on 4X6 paper too. Seems to be a common problem with HP. If you would like to accept the mirror image solution and post a separate on, you should get another expert to help you.

In the meantime I will try to research it further.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I need to make copies of my little brothers highschool football pics to send into the coaches at colleges, i try to scan the image of a 5x7 to 4x6 photo paper but it ends up cutting the image in half...


The images need to be re-sized. It's important when re-sizing to keep aspect proportions since a 5x7 print is a vertical or portrait print and a 4x6 is a horizontal or landscape print. Therefore, when re-sizing if you check off keep aspect ratio, you may get either 4" tall or 6" wide but not both or you'll stretch the picture distorting it. Picasa by Google is a good and easy to use photo editing program that should suit your needs and is a free download. Picasa Best of luck with your project and please post back with any other questions.

Only 4x6 tray prints clearly


For this concern try pressing "copy+cancel" for media calibration then try again, make sure you have an A4 paper loaded. If this doesnt help you out try using the Kodak website www.kodak.com/go/itg and use "image quality" for class.

Sizing the photo


Unfortunately, the P400 seems to have its own set of sizes. The printer will give a print close to the size selected. (This is really noticeable with the perferated psper.) The situation is no different with the P440.
