image cropping changes

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:

    Good luck.

    Try cropping by using the marquee tool. Hold shift as you drag to constrain it to a square, then go to Image>Crop. Does that produce a different result when you print?

    Are you trying to print a square photo?

    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. 


    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.
