I'm hoping that someone here will have solutions to my printing problems below:
I just finished installing Photoshop 7.0 (Windows) & setting up the Epson 2200P printer. I printed an image on 8.5 x 11" sheet, and it came out fine. However, when I tried to resize the image to print on Epson 4X6 perforated cut sheets, the image was printed off-centered with one side being outside of the perforated border (bottom in landscape orientation). The print preview shows everything being in the center of the print area as they should be. What did I miss?
Basically, all I did was taking an image, resized it to 4" x 6" using Image->Resize. However, when printed, Photoshop warned me "..image is larger than print area, clipping may occur..." and the printed image only came out to about 3.75" x 5.5" (with off-centered problem mentioned above). If the selected media is Epson 4x6, the image size is less than or equal to that media size, and print previews show final image inside print area, why am I still getting that warning and that output? How do I get a true 4x6 print?
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any inputs.

All I can offer is a suggestion...that you may have already tried. I used to get that message (when I worked with PS6 & Epson 1200 at the Photo ID/Forensic Unit) and sometimes could solve it by resizing the image with the Crop Tool.
Select the Crop Tool, enter the dimensions (4X6) in the options bar, define the crop area, double-click on the image.
I don't know if this will work, or even WHY it did for me (again sometimes)....just a suggestion to mess with.

Under Photoshop 7,
Go to “File”, “Print with Preview”, and make sure the “Scale to Fit Media” box is checked. If this doesn’t work try manually inputting the size. Incidentally I’ve use that 4x6 perforated paper and I had the same problem, though I’m not sure I did something wrong. I spoke to an Epson Rep about this and he suggested that I manually input a slightly larger size in the H x W size in the “Scaled Print Size” box. Hadn’t tried this yet so let me know if this works for you.
