"Final print"


Joanna, US
          

When I edit a shot in Capture NX2 and print it the printed view is not quite the same size. I notice this each time I edit and crop the shot. If the print would come out the size view as the final edit it would be great. It seems that it is "cropped" a little and sometimes this action will cut off a small part of the subject. The CNX2 print layout screen will show: paper: 4x6 (4.21x6.19) inch and printable area: 4.21x6.19 inch.

I use a HP Windows 7 home premium 64 bit OS and HP Photosmart 6510 printer. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

John,

The preview will show some cropping when you print borderless. If you print something it likely actually comes out looking that way. When you do a "full bleed" like that, some of the image goes off the paper to insure that the paper is fully printed with no white edge.

Does that seem to be the case?

Hi Mick,

Thanks for looking and your question. I don't believe that's the case as I tried with a border and the subject still cropped off some of the subject. This is the edited and cropped picture. When I try to print through CNX2 a small part of the hand and toes are cut off. Perhaps this is natural but when talking with Nikon today I was told that the saved edited view should print the same as the screen view. I checked with HP regarding the printer and apparently the settings are correct.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. I print on Epson, so I can really do a test comparison.

Sometimes the printer menus are quite confusing. It sounds like your printer is overriding the Capture print settings.

Take a look and see if a crop to fit box is checked. It may be under an Advanced or Options selection box.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your suggestion. I looked but couldn't find anything in the printer properties that relates to that. As noted, the edited shot would be nice if the print wasn't cut off. I can understand there being a little cropping but not as much as I've experienced. Guess I'll have to remember to take a wider shot and go from there.

John:

Maybe I am missing something, but the aspect ratio of the photo you have posted is none of these sizes:

3x4, 4x6, 5x7, 8x10

If you are trying to print at any of those sizes or multiples of those sizes, then the printer will automatically crop off one or more edges to make it fit the print size.

To me it looks like you may have used free hand cropping without attention to print size/aspect ratio.

I think that if you will crop it to the ratio of a standard picture size, it should print almost exactly as you have cropped it.

Hi John,

I tend to agree with Grady. The aspect ratio of your picture does not lend itself to a 4 x 6 picture. To print, at that size it will always be cropped. Try printing at 4 x 5 size on the 4 x 6 paper. You should get the complete picture but with "white space" around the picture.
I hope this helps
