I have an Epson R1800. When printing an 8X10 borderless photo I still get some of the image cut off. I made the images print size exactly 8X10 and yet it clips part of the bottom off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

What is the ratio of the photo? Example - 2336 x 2920 is a ratio of 1 to 1.25 which is exactly an 8 x 10.

That is a ratio of 1 to 1.25

Is the paper an exact 8 x 10? Does the instructions for the printer state that it will cut some of the photo when doing a full bleed?

Have you tried cropping the main photo a little more and see if the extra trims off giving you what you wanted?

The paper is exactly 8X10. When I go to print, the printer software comes up and says that the image is larger than the printable area and that some clipping will occur. I have tried cropping it to varying degrees, but then I get a small border. I uploaded the pic to MPIX and the preview for an 8X10 is perfect.

Not sure if this will help, but in my PS cs program I usually have to check and make sure in print command that I have "8x10 borderless photopaper" checked. I also have the preview box showing if it's correct or not.

I have to specify boarder-less sheet fed paper on a Mac. It's kind of a hassle but once you get used to it, it's OK. I need to do that twice once in printer setup and again after the print prompts come up.

Don't know if this will help - I have an Epson R2400. When I want to print borderless, I go to Printer Properties and, on the Main Tab, I select Borderless, then click on the Page Layout tab. When Page Layout opens, there is a frame over to the right of the page titled "Borderless" with a slider titled "Expansion". You use the slider to control the amount (Min to Max) of overprint relative to the edge of the paper for borderless printing. Too little overprint leaves a thin white border and too much overprint cuts into your image. You just adjust as necessary.

Hope this helps,
Mike
