First of all, thanks for starting the forum in this format. I've always found the Yahoo format hard to follow.

My son is going overseas and gave me his Epson Stylus 1400 to use while he's away. I've been trying to print a borderless 13X19 print using Qimage Pro which I just updated to the latest version. when printing portrait there is always about an inch left unprinted on the bottom and about 1/4 inch or less on the right edge. I even went back and re-sized the file to 14X20 and tried both "Original" and "Fit to Page" in the print properties but got the same result.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I did go into Photoshop and printed from there and got the whole page covered.

Thanks,
E.B.

Hi EB,
What printable area is showing above the page preview, that should be the same as the page size you have specified in the driver.
Also, check the actual print size as given in the queue pane below the thumbs, is that what you expect?
I wonder if you have some additional page margins set. Check in the Page Formatting menu or via the menu cheater & Page Margins.
When borderless is set, the values should be zero.
Terry.

Thanks for answering. If this works, here's a screen shot of what I'm getting. As you can see, the image queue says that the dimensions are 12.95X18.50. I re-checked in Photoshop and they are 14X20, the printer is set for 13X19 and, it prints out full page from PS. I'm not sure how it gets to 12.95X18.50.

Looking at the screen shot you need to click the auto crop tool (the scissors) in the print properties dialog so that it can crop to fit in the 13x19 page size.
Also in the print setup for your printer make sure the printer has print borderless selected.

Hi again,
Looks like Dennis beat me to it. A picture is worth a 1000 words.
I couldn't help noticing you had images in that folder named with specific sizes - created in PS I assume.
With Qimage there is no need to create so called "sized" images (images are in pixels not inches, it's only a tag). Use the original image, edited to make it nice if required, and open in Qimage.
Specify the inch size in Q and everything else is automatically taken care of, re-sizing the pixels for printing etc.
Terry.

Thanks alot.

I have to admit, I've had Qimage forever and have never learned more than I needed to get a good print. With this printer I think I need to learn a little more.

I've clicked the Auto Crop tool and that seems to do it, except that the Page size shows 12.95X19.014 and Print Properties are 12.95X18.93, that's when I have print properties set to "Custom" and the size as 13X19, the printer is, of course, set to 13X19. When I set the Print Properties to "Fit Page", I get the same Page Size but the Print Properties are now 12.95X19.01.

Needless to say, I'm confused.

I think the 13x19 is a nominal size and is based on a metric size (A3+ = 329x483 mm). I'm sure Qimage is telling you the correct numbers.

Do you know about disabling borderless expansion/overspray in Qimage? You may want to do this to avoid cropping edges of the image.
It's in the Page Formatting menu but be aware you may get slivers of white on some edges depending on the accuracy of the printer fed mechanism. That can be overcome by adjusting the page margins a little from the zero values; plus and minus values.

Thanks Terry,

I think I've got this part figured out and everything is printing fine thanks to you and Dennis. I'm sure there will be more questions.
