  • Small Photo. Large Printout

    I have some 4"x 6" photos that I want to print as a 8.5"x 11".

    I have tried resizing the photo in Photoshop, however, even though it resized it to 8.5 x 11 it still will only print it as a 4 x 6 photo.

    Is there any way that I can resize the photo so that it will print out as 8.5"x 11"?

    Can you tell us a little more about your process? System, printer, etc.

    If you resize the image itself but it still prints small, it is possible that the printer driver is set to print at 4x6. If you are using an Epson printer, click on the "paper" tab to make sure the printer knows how large your paper is. Other printers should have similar controls.

    Hope this helps

      I just tried what you recommended and that solved the problem.

      Thank you.

          How to adjust printer or Photoshop to print 8.5X11
          by Gerald McClaren
          I have an Epson R800 and is using Photoshop CS2. I'm trying to increase a 5X7 photo to an 8.5X11. The problem that I'm having is that the top and bottom part of the photo keeps getting cut off. When I tried to print, I receive a warning that the image is too large for the paper and if I proceed,...

          by Molko

          I'm using a Canon MP800 printer and trying to print a black and white photo. Prints fine in black and white on A4 but on photo paper I get a pink tinge. Has anyone any ideas?

          Image is Larger
          by extrememc
          I created a new image 8.5x11 at 72 dpi for a flyer. I set my bleed line 1/2" on all sides. When I try to print this image I get a message from CS2 that the image is larger then the printable area and there will be some clipping. How can I avoid this?

          Problem centralising print in Photoshop
          by maverick911
          I am printing on A4 with an image size of 18cm x 25cm to an Epson 950 Photo printer, but I cannot get the image consistently in the centre of the paper despite checking the centre image box. Image is often ofset to one side on the long side, but not always?
          Any suggestions please?
