Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

So I can help walk you through the process of printing at 4 x 6.. I need to ask a few questions first.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you're using.

Windows XP, Widows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Or a Mac.

If it's a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows.

Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Thank you,

Lets start with the paper. If you dont want to have to use scissors and trim off the excess paper, then you probably want high gloss 4 x 6 photo paper, such as this pack from brother.

Other wise, you could just use photo 8x11 paper or even regular paper ( though the quality isnt going to be as good with regular paper )

Now, as far as printing 4 x 6 itself.. What program will you be printing from?

I am right clicking on a jpeg in the windows picture app and selecting print option.

that is a laser printer so you want to use laser photo paper not inkjet

you should be able to put 4x6 paper in the manual feed slot if nothing else

then it should just be a matter of selecting the paper size when you go to print.

what issues are you actually coming up against when you try ?
