Customer Question
How do I print 4x6...
How do I print 4x6 printers with Canon IP6700D printer? The software does not give me this option. My options are 3.5 x 5; 5x7; 8x10; Borderless (which is 5.5 x 8).
I am using Canon Utilities Easy-Photoprint Ver 3.6.0 in Windows XP Pro environment.
This has been a frustration for so many years that I do not know why I did not ask you before!

Chat only; no remote connection.

Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 2 years ago
I'm sorry, with remote support, you can watch everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Bureau Business website:

http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/professional-services-general/justanswer-in-san-francisco-ca-82403

Remote support is quicker and easier for you as I would do all the steps for you. But per your request, I can certainly provide written instructions you can use for fixing this issue.

Can you click on Start->Control Panel->Printers...
, then right-click on the Canon printer, then click on Preferences
, then look around for the paper size option or something similar, then see if you can set up a custom paper size there.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Been there, done that...

I want to print 2 - 4x6 prints on an 8.5 by 11 inch picture paper.

Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 2 years ago
I'm sorry, I did not know you've tried that already. In Preferences, does it have the option to check / uncheck Borderless? If yes, does it more paper sizes and/or custom when you check and/or uncheck Borderless?

And/or in Canon Utilities Easy-Photoprint, does it have the option to check / uncheck Borderless? If yes, does it more paper sizes and/or custom when you check and/or uncheck Borderless? Please let me know. Thank you.

The answer to both questions is NO.

Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 2 years ago
I'm sorry, can you unplug the Canon printer, uninstall the Canon printer in Control Panel -> Add/remove programs, and delete the Canon printer, if still show, in Control Panel -> Printers...

, then download and install the latest Printer Driver at the Canon website below:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip6700d#DriversAndSoftware

, then check the printer's preferences again.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

I could do that, but I really doubt the problem is the Printer Driver.

I believe the issue lies in the software; it simply does not give me the option for 4x6 prints. They are the commonest print size in use and the option is not there! Unbelievable.

Why would you think the problem is in the driver and not in the software?

Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes, the issue is in the Canon Utilities Easy-Photoprint software. However, as you can see, the paper size you want or custom option is not even shown in the printer's preferences, so I think the issue is in the printer driver also. I'm thinking if the latest printer's driver has more paper sizes or not.

Or you can try this first: Can you download and install the GIMP photo software at the website below, then see if the GIMP program gives you the paper size you want or custom paper size.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Too late to try that first.

The canon driver is removed

To reinstall they want me to exit everything and I will then lose contact with you.

Or... I could try and install without exiting everything.

Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 2 years ago

You can get back to me via the View Response link in the email message from JustAnswer / Viet in your email.

Also, please remove the (Canon) Easy-PhotoPrint... program in Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs, then download and install the latest software Easy-PhotoPrint at the same website:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip6700d#DriversAndSoftware

Please let me know. Thank you.

I will try and get back to you tomorrow, unless it goes quickly and easily.

Thanks.

You're welcome. OK, if it's done before you go to sleep, let me know. Otherwise, we can continue tomorrow; I'm available starting noon time tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.

Yesterday I chatted with Viet.The results of performing all of your suggestions was not successful.


My problem is longstanding. How do I print 4x6 printers with Canon IP6700D printer on an 81/2 by 11 inch Picture Paper?


The software does not give me this option. My options are 3.5 x 5; 5x7; 8x10; Borderless (which is 5.5 x 8). I am using Canon Utilities Easy-Photoprint Ver 3.6.0 in Windows XP Pro environment.


I have concluded the software whether my original version that came with the printer or the newer 4.5.0 version - that neither has the capability of printing 4x6 pictures on an 8.5 x 11 Picture Paper. I have only one option and that is to purchase 4x6 Picture Paper and print one at a time.


I have uninstalled the software you recommended and reinstalled the original software.


I would like a refund of my money and will have the pictures printed at Costco or Walmart.

I'm sorry. You've tried both the new driver and software right?
I'm really sorry about the limitation of the Canon Easy-Photoprint software. Did you also try the alternate software I've provided previously? But I can certainly cancel this per your request. Thank you.

Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your printer question.

it has nothing to do with the printer driver.

that handles 4 x 6 paper and 8 x 11 paper which is what you want to print on

it is the software that has to resize the picture to 4 x 6

you might try different software or just resize the picture first rather than trying to do it through there print time selection

in fact windows should do it

just highlight the picture or pictures you want to print in the my pictures folder

click on print

then select the paper size as 8.5 x 11 letter and the picture size as 4x6 and it will give you 2 per page.

I am able to log in remotely and show you how to do it very quickly if you want to pay a little bit extra

I have already paid Viet $35. I cannot get any more responses from him. I would like a refund of my money. Pictures printed at London Drugs. Problem not resolved with most up to date software. I cannot use the recommended alternate software, requires SP3. I don't want it; have SP2 installed. I won't pay more money. Want refund. Viet said he would refund; can't seem to make contact with him.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

My life is very busy, I cannot respond or remain on here for long periods of timel You read my last post. The alternate software you mentioned requires that I have SP3 installed on Windows XP Pro. I have SP2 and do not want to install SP3. Therefore it cannot work either. The options you suggest don't work, are not available. I always format and adjust my photos before printing in Adobe, etc. I'll work only with Viet. Do not make me rate you poorly or block you. I've worked in computers/software 30y.
