Can't set up page for printing

  • I print DVD covers which are downloaded at about 4-times normal size.  Typically, I change the resolution from 72 to 288 dpi and then fine tune the size by scaling.  Two questions arise:

    Why do I always have to set Page Setup to 80% (landscape) to achieve the correct print size (regardless of the original image size)?

    In about 50% of cases, the image runs across two pages - it appears to have slid as far as possible to the right (on one page) and just enough down to run about 5% off the page at the bottom.  Nothing I do can rectify this.  In frustration, I boot up Windows and do the job in IrfanView.  How can I solve this problem?

     
  • As you know, the print functionality in Seashore isn't very complete. One easy workaround is to save your image in a format that can be read by other programs, and then open it up in a different program, such as Word, or Preview, and then printing from that program.
