Customer Question

I have had my Nikon D5500 for almost a year now, and I still can't figure out how to crop, scale, and/or zoom in on pictures before I print them. I tried to use scaling to .5, 10, etc.
I got the picture I wanted, which was a blown up portion of the picture I took, but as soon as I went to "print," I did not get the "scaled" or "cropped" part of the picture that I had seen. How do I make this work? Or does it work? I really like to crop pictures to give me close-up shots, but so far, ViewNX 2 doesn't give that to me.

Hi there and welcome

It is only doing this for viewing not for printing.

You need to actually do this on a computer and then save it as a new image.

A default program on windows is MSPaint (installed on all windows computers), if you open this up then load the picture, you can then crop, expand, rotate ect, save this then print it out.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
