I think it may need to be a setting in your document. If you are using microsoft word, go to page setup and set the size of the page to be the size of your paper. Keep in mind it will also have to print some margins, unless you are using a special photo printer.

@piyo:  Did you get it to work? If you go to print, then click printer preferences, you need to select the paper size that you are using. You can remove margins if needed.

Don’t use your nice card stock to print test pages, cut a peice of regular paper and do that until you get it right

@piyo:  You should be able to change the paper size and print FROM the picture/fax viewer. On mine if I go to print, I get the photo printing wizard, select the picture then next, get the “what printer do you want to use” screen and click on the “printing preferences” button, then select the “Advanced” button on the paper/quality tab, then select your paper size from the drop down. I don’t get a ton of great options on mine but I think trying the A5 would work if you don’t get 4×6. Like i said, try it on regular paper till it works.

OK I’m an idiot I just assumed A4 was a bit smaller than A7 when in reality it’s humongous lol… I can’t find the appropriate paper size in the optoins, I wish they would give more. But I WAS able to save the png I was playing with in the fax viewer, into a JPEG. Then opened word and went to Insert, Picture, and then it shows in word.

🙁 I don’t know how else to help without having the actual file and trying myself. I’m sorry!
