    Printing problem in Photoshop 7...

    Hi! SitePointers,

    I'm having a printing problem using Photoshop 7. Basically, I have an image with the dimensions of (8.5 *14) inches. However, when I tried to print it in (8.5*14) paper, I've got a prompt saying that the image is larger than the paper size.

    How can I overcome with this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    T Ragu

    Well... make sure the printer settings are set to the desired size. It also looks like you want to bleed which many printers are not capable of doing. So hence, the image file is larger than the paper. That's the problem. Make the image smaller or increase the paper size in the settings.

    Hope that helped.

    you can scale the output to fit the page, or print it on larger paper that has a printable area that is the same size of your image or even bigger.

    When you are designing a piece you have to take into account for the pinter 'grip' which can be as much as .25" You best option is to go with 11x17 paper, or go into the print options in Photoshop and tell it to scale to fit the paper.
