PRINTING PHOTOS

I have been printing out a few photos lately at home with my Epson 880 printer, my query is can you get a photo software package that will print out the exact size print that you choose, 6 x 4, 7 x 5 etc, etc because when i have tried to get say a exact 7 x5 to fit into a frame, it can print out too big or small, even if i pick my own size the length seems to governed by the width, (aspect ratio) and it seems to be worse if i have cropped a photo, anyone got any advice on this.

Cheers

if your useing XP try the Photo and fax wizard

you can choose a range of sizes to suit standard choices

From Irfanview [free download] to Photoshop for £200 plus. (There is a lot of good software in between).
With a good printer choose say Irfanview and find a whole new way of spending your time! ;o)

Sharpamat, I've printed some out using XP and the size is a lot better, but the print quality isnt as good as when i'm printing out prints using the Camedia software that came with my Olympus camera.

Just checked my own Camedia.

You can choose the size of the finished print but not the position on on the paper.
Although you can put paper of the correct size into the thing there is no fancy editing possible.

You could try woodchip's excellent Micrografx, that was how I started, or use Irfanview a free download.
