Image size in photoshop is 7.267 9.824 resolution 56.667

Epson 7880  Paper Settings>user Defined>24.02 inches Height = 11 inches

Print Properties = Original Size and spacing = opimal  Qimage shows the doc size as 24x11 (as I have it setup in my printer) Borderless

Photoshop TIFF is 7.267x9.824 inches

Print properties = Original Size. Then why when I click on it does look like a postage stamp?

What I am not doing correctly? Thank you

Drop down the size and select "Custom", then check "Original/embedded size".  On the upper right of that dialog, is "override embedded size" checked?  If so, uncheck it.

OK Thanks. So original size does not really make it the orignal size, so from now on I need to go custom>original size?

Also I have both items selected and go to price placement>compact, but yet nothing changes when I make any print placement selection.

I am looking to clean up my manual placement and place the printers edge to edge. Perhaps to the left or the right or the left of the page so I can see if I have enough room for other prints.

thank you

Kieran

The only absolute dimension that matter in a photo is the number of pixels - yours is 412 x 526. If the resolution, which is an arbitrary amount,  is set at 56.66 the size reported is the pixel size divided by the resolution - in this case 7.267x9.284". If the resolution is changed to 360, which your printer uses, the image dimensions will be reported as 1.14 x 1.46" without any change in the original file. This is what happens in QI if 'override embedded size' is checked, giving you the postage size print.
You are actually asking a lot for QI to blow a postage stamp size file up to 9 x 7". It will do a better job than anything else, but it won't be great. You could work back to find out why the size is so small - QI works best if the files are kept at the original size before printing.

No, original size won't be original size if you've chosen to override it.  Uncheck the box and you'll get original size.
