Just installed Elements 11 on a new Asus ET2300 all-in-one with Windows 8. Resolution is set at a recommended 1920x1080. I opened a jpeg in Elements and cropped the image to a square, but when I hit Print, what I see on the print set-up screen (and what actually prints) is an image with a good part of the top and bottom missing (although there is also a small image in the upper left corner that looks intact). I tried setting the computer resolution to 1600x900 and the image was severely cropped on the sides.
How do I correct this problem? If I choose one of the other resolution options, I guess that I might get a square or something close to it, but I assume that will effect my results in viewing venues.
I suggest read this printed tutorial to get the idea how to crop an image professionally:
Unfortunately, I found nothing at that link-site that solves my problem, which is that the print that comes out is very different from the cropped area that I have selected. But still, I thank you for your time and concern.

Are you saving the picture before printing? It looks like you are not saving the picture. The way I do is as follows:
1) Load the picture in the editor;
2) Duplicate the image;
3) Crop the duplicated image;
4) Save the cropped image;
5) Load this image again to be certain it is saved;
5) Print the (re)loaded image;
Using this workflow you are certain that you are printing the correct image.
I solved part of my problem by unchecking Crop To Fit. That preserves the square image that I have created by cropping the original photo. Now I have a different problem, but it is minor. Elements 11 has some confusing differences from my old v7
Thanks for all your offers of help.
