I have a pack of HP photo paper 10 x 15cm, and see on the box the description "plus tear off tab".
Common sense tells me this is for fingerprint-free handling, and it looks - from the size of the box, that the tab is on 1 side only. If that is so then page set-up can ignore the tab for purposes of printing area.
Before I open the box - can anyone confirm I am correct so far? And more important - what is the quality of the tear-off? Does it look like a nice clean photo when it is seperated, or is there an obvious perf? That's my main worry.
I've never used this type of photo paper but, if the tear off quality is inadequate, a sharp Stanley knife or similar tool plus a ruler and a solid surface will ensure it can be given a clean cut edge.
The tab is on one end only and ignored for print. Mostly they tear off ok but I have had to tidy up the odd one. I first got them for mini-album use and picked up several packs of two for the price of one.
A stated above, just fold the edge back and forth a few times and they come of very easily and cleanly. In relation to the paper, keep an eye out for Aldi offers, they at times do a heavier paper (better quality, for a fraction of the price of HP.
Aldi sold a 280gm. HP is usually 240gm although for a premium you can buy a heavier weight. The Aldi one is worth buying to keep some 'in', even if you don't need it there and then, these Aldi offers can be few and far between.
