Hi all,
I've got an Epson R210 A4 photo printer (borderless style) but it is driving me insane! After about 20 practice runs I still can't figure out how to print the whole photo without borders or cropping. I thought I'd ask you wise lot before I throw it or myself off the balcony...
So, to the details: I am shooting with a D70, cleaning up the shots in PS CS then trying to print full size on A4 and/or 10x15cm paper. I understand the images aren't the same width to height ratio as the paper but I don't like (a) white borders all round or (b) having the picture cropped in heavily.
By my way of thinking, it should be possible to only have a white border on one dimension of the print shouldn't it? Alternatively, and this is the one i'm keen on, couldn't you crop one dimension just a touch to make it fit the paper exactly? I figure I can start experimenting with this by a crop, print, examine (rinse and repeat!) process but thought I'd ask first - surely other people have solved this problem?
This is my test pic....

thanks,
adam the mightily confused

I did a quick Google search for you on borderless printing for that model and came up with this link. I think it will fully address your problem without having to post the directions here in full.

Happy printing!

Hi Paul,

Thanks heaps for your help mate. I had a look at the page but its stuff that I've already tried. It prints everything without borders but it crops in the photos heavily to do so. I'm still hunting the holy grail - full borderless printing with only minor cropping...

cheers,

adam

There is somewhere in the Epson print dialog box, a place where you can adjust the amount of extra enlargement Epson adds when printing borderless. I can not tell you exactly where, but I have seen it. Find your install disc for the printer, put it in and when the install screen comes up look for the User Manual to install. It should tell you just where to look and how to adjust it.

IF I read the info right - your sample image is 425 x 640 pixels
A4 paper is 595 x 842
a difference of 170 pixels on the short side 202 pixels on the long side
If you are using Photoshop to do the editing work , what size do you tell it to crop to?
not 8x10 or 8 x 12 ( or any multiple there of )
If you are printing to A4 paper the crop size is more like 8 x 11 5/8
SO-- if you crop to 8 x 11 5/8 there should be no cropping of anything at all-- or it would crop equally all sides
IF it is still heavily cropped that would be a printer setting
( something like maintain aspect or fit to page box needs checked )
best guess on my part

I had the same problem on the Epson R800. Then I noticed that the box which lists the loaded paper had entries like:
4x6 (10x15)
AND
4x6 (10x15) Borderless

You need to choose the second one to be able to get borderless prints.
