I having Trouble printing a 4" x 6" borderless photo

I crop, resize to 4" x 6" and get 3.75 by 5.875

Using a lexmark P700 (not the best by it should work)

Using Microsoft Picture It Photo 7

Using exactly 4" x 6" paper

Thanks

The ability to print borderless pictures is also a function of the printer... might be that your printer doesn't support borderless printing. What does your printer manual say?

Yes, as Wildman says it is a function of the printer. I can recommend the Canon printer & software that comes with the printer.

With the Canon's I have with their "Easy Photo" software one can print borderles or bordered images at A4, one or several image per page & 6x4 really good.

There are programs available that will let you print three 4 X 6 photos on a single 81/2 X 11 sheet of photo paper (or two 5 X 7's). Once the print is completed, you can cut the pictures apart. This is really an inexpensive solution that I use most of the time. Those 4 X 6 sheets are pretty costly, but handy for printing a single picture that's been attached to an e-mail.

The program I use is one that shipped with an HP printer several years ago. Qimage will also work as well as a shareware program called PhotoPaperSaver.

lexmark P700 supports borderless printing (so the manual says). Maybe they forgot to supply the scissors.

Frustrating

When all else fails, read the manual. You must select bordless in the Printer Options.

From the section on printing photos in the manual:

Step 2: Customize the print settings
1 With your document open, click File Print.
The Print dialog box appears.
2 From the Print dialog box, click Properties, Preferences, or Options.
3 Select a paper size:
a From the Print Properties dialog box, select the Paper Setup tab.
b From the Paper Size area, select:
– Borderless if you want to print a borderless photo. The size of the paper you are
using and the size of the photo you want to print must be the same.
– Paper if you do not want the printer to print to the edges of the paper.
c From the Paper Size menu, select the correct size. For more information about printing on
custom size paper, see page 41.
4 Click OK.

It also looks like your printer shipped with a photo printing software package with templates for printing photos. You can see how to use, beginning on Page 10 of this manual:

thanks Jim

Even though my manual only goes to page 28 and it looks like they revised the software I got it to work.
