Yes! I still need help with this problem, the photos are printing smaller than 4x6 on the HP photo smart B210 printer. Help!!
I am using Internet Explorer
What application? all I need to know is what I am doing wrong why my photos are printing out smaller than 4x6 am I using the wrong settings?
Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your printer question.
when you go to print
click file / print
select the printer and
there should be a box to check that says "fit to page"
if it is not right in front of you hit the options or preferences button and you should find it
if that doesn't work please tell me what operating system you are using and what program you are printing from.
Sorry about just getting back to you if you're still there. I followed your instructions and the photos are still printing small. I am using windows 7
and internet Explorer.
you did find the fit to page check box ?
what program are you printing from and is it only one photo that wont do it or every photo ?
can you please try one that you previously were able to print correctly and let me know ? I suspect it is the photo itself that was saved in a smaller format and has to be expanded to fit the page.
Thanks for getting back to me. No I did not see the fit to page check box, you're probably right these were photos emailed to me from an i phone could that be the reason why they are printing small? and is it possible to make them larger?
thank you June.
yes the phone probably took smaller pics as they would look fine on the phone screen and take less memory that way.
You can expand them in most graphics programs but again the easiest way to do it is by using the fit to page option
If I knew what software you are using it would be easier to tell you exactly how to do it.
Again thanks for your reply, I am not very computer savvy so I can't tell you what software I am using, whatever came with the computer which is an Hp Compaq I think, using windows 7.If this information is useful, please let me know.
the easiest way might be to use this free website
just browse to the photo and select the width you want in inches ( there is a drop down box that says pixels click on it and you can select inches )
I don't remember if it just lets you download it back down or emails it to you but its pretty fast and easy if you only have a few photo's to do
