I asked about this a long, long time ago, but I still haven't really figured it out.

When I print choosing the "borderless" option, the printer lops off a bit of the print. I wondered if I had a setting wrong or something, but I now found this in the Help files:

"Because this feature enlarges the image to a size slightly larger than the paper size when Sheet Feeder is selected as the Paper Source setting, the portion of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper will not be printed."

So, my question is this: has anyone done the exercise of figuring out just how much is missing at differerent sizes?

For example, when I print an 8.5 x 11 borderless print, there should be some size to make the image in Photoshop before printing, to make it just fit on the paper following the Epson gross-up (e.g., maybe 8.45 x 10.96 or something). I could probably figure it out with a bunch of trial and error, but I'd like to save the paper and ink, and my time.

Any advice gratefully appreciated.
