How do I adjust a photo from original size to print the full photo on 4 X 6 paper, without clipping occuring? I am using Elements 4.

If 4X 6 is the size you always print ,perhaps you should shoot in the 3:2 aspect ratio.

But while I do not use elements I just saw this very question answered for someone that does...

You use the rectanular marque tool or the crop tool and that can be set to the 3:2 ratio and then you still must crop but its your choice how the crop is applied.

The other option is to add a border (increase the canvas size) to make the ratio you are using into 3:2

Thanks very much Gene. I will sure give that a try. My wife is trying to do postcards using area scenes.
