I purchase this printed from a specific reason. I want to print customize card stock. The card stock is thin enought, but I do not know how to set up with Adobe Photo shop to print aa 7 inch wide by 10 inch high card.This is a new printer and I will return it if it can't print this size
Your printer should be able to handle this!
In Photoshop Elements, go to File>print
In the dialog that comes up, #3 select Custom Size from the drop-down, #5 select custom size from the drop down, and on the next screen enter the dimensions.
I like to crop the picture file to specification prior to sending it to the printer. You may want to tick the "crop to fit" box, although if you have cropped , this may be a redundant step.
Thanks for your input. I still have a problem, let me explain.
My wife and I have been making Christmas and other cards, hand painting watercolor blank cards. The original cards card stock was too thick and would jam
with our older HP inkjet. I also had a lot older Photoshop version. Last year, I purchased Elements, and I like it. I don’t like the fact that I have to watch all kind of videos
to understand it! My wife and I are both 70 years old! A manual would work better for me. We purchase thinner stock cards 90# that will work.
All our cards have been created in Power Point, which my wife understands. They are two sided and I need to import them into Adobe so I can print both sides. My choice is PDF or Jpeg.
I followed your directions I printed a one sided card, and it worked the first time. Now I can’t seem to repeat it. There was no # 3 selection on my custom list, and although I select a 7W x 10 high card ,the actual result changes!
What I really need to do is print 2 sides imported sides from Power point or I will be returning the 8600.
Yesterday, my wife went and contacted tech support and the told her that we bought the wrong printer! I had previously had tech support recommend this one. They said that this is a business printer and recommended a lower cost product. I need to demonstrate this or I will be hooking up our older HP injet!
Thanks for your help,
Since you have Power Point on your machine, have a look to see if you have MS WORD.
