Printing Scale Issues
« on: September 04, 2008, 05:41:10 PM »
Hello,

I'm running photo mechanic version 4.5.2 on a Mac with OS 10.5.4. I'm trying to print some .jpg proofs - one per sheet of letter-sized paper. When I select the image and click file - print, I get the normal print window (I've attached a screen grab) and then when I click Print, I get to see a preview of the proof (I've attached that screen grab too). The image is thumbnail size in teh preview and prints that way.

I have looked through all the preferences and all the print dialog boxes and cannot find out how to get the photo to fit the page. The .jpg is a full size .jpg - 300dpi and 3000 px wide so it's actual size should fill the page.

Am I missing an option here?

I am at work and trying to print to a Xerox Phaser 6250 and other people who are connected to the same printing, running the same version of photo mechanic are printing theirs full-size with no problem.

Please make sure you all get version 4.5.3.2 since it has some important updates for users of Mac OS X 10.5.x.

I don't know why it would look like that.  You didn't post your Page Setup dialog so I don't know what settings you've chosen there.

Have you tried looking at the settings your co-workers are using?
