Chapter 6. Printing Photos > Uses for full-page prints

Uses for full-page prints

  • Anything you want to print as large as possible but don't mind if it doesn't match standard aspect ratios.

  • Prints on special 4" x 6" or roll paper; make sure to choose Page Setup from the File menu () and select the proper paper size in the Page Setup dialog before printing (Figure 6.5).

    Figure 6.5. To print on 4” x 6” paper, you must first select the appropriate paper size in the Page Setup dialog, accessible by choosing Page Setup from the File menu.


✓ Tips

  • If a photo's aspect ratio does not match that of your paper, iPhoto shrinks the photo proportionally to make it fit, which increases the white borders.

  • Don't assume iPhoto can print to your printer's minimum margins. Test a few full-page prints in economy mode first to learn what will come out.

  • Don't bother entering your printer's minimum margins to get the smallest possible margins; any number (including 0.00) lower than the printer's minimum margins results in a printout that uses as much of the paper as possible.

  • If you see a yellow warning icon in the Print dialog, try increasing your margins.
