Searched the forum and still dont quite have the answer I'm looking for. I have an HP 9800 printer, using PS CS. When I want to print something, it always cuts off either a side, or the bottom.

Example. I have an image. set the image to 4x6 in photoshop by using the image size command. image size is 1200 x 1800 which = 1:1.5. I goto page setup and tell it borderless 4x6

I then say print with preview, it comes up with the scale to fit media checked, which gives the image a size of 6.195 x 4.13 ( bigger than the paper.) If i uncheck the scale box, it goes back to 4x6.

I click the page set up box from that screen, and it shows borderless 4x6. Click printer then properties, and I have borderless photo 4x6.

Click ok to all the boxes, get back to the print with preview screen. Click print and it cuts off the right hand side of my image. This was with the box unchecked for scaling to fit media. If I check that box, it cuts off just a little of the top, bottom and left sides, and takes quite a bit off the right side.

If I use regular 4x6 paper in the set-up, it still cuts off the left, bottom and top a little, and cuts quite a bit off the right and leaves about 3/8" white area on the right side of the print.

Anyone have an idea what im doing wrong?

only other box that is checked is in the preview screen again, the print space profile is listing "same as source". Should I be using my printer in that box, or does that have anything to do with the problem.


btw, have same problem on 8x10, just been using smaller paper to save ink until I get this figured out.

Can't help you out on the specific printer , someone else will have to step in

I have a canon printer and when it does " borderless" prints it has to shoot ink past the paper to make it true borderless , if that is the small amout of cropping on 3 sides it might be normal

as far as the 3/8 of the other side all I can guess is that you are using 4x6 paper ???
I have a small 4x6 hp printer that takes only 4x6 paper , does the same thing
turns out I had to buy the paper with the perforated tab on the one side to work right!!!
in my case - it must sense the end of the paper and basically ran out of room, so it stopped printing and pushed it on through !

don't know if this helped at all , probably not , just something to think about

the 8x10 has me stunped , you have 8 1/2 x 11 paper ?? that sounds more like a page setup / margins problem like most word proccessors would have
