When I make a print from CS6 the image on paper is narrower than the stated dimension in the program. The height of the image is faithfully reproduced. I know that there must be a preference setting to correct this but I can't remember which one it is.
The printer margins are set to default which is 0.59 inch top and bottom and 0.12 inch right and left. The roll paper dimensions are 24 wide x 26 long. the 20.25 x 24.25 image was placed on the paper in landscape mode so that the long side of the image was printed on the 26 inch long part of the paper. That leaves 1.75 inch for the margins which total 1.18 inch. the image was positioned on the paper 1 inch from the top and 0.763 from the left, all of which appear to be within the margins. Thanks for your input, I was thinking that your questions were leading me to a solution but alas, I don't see it yet. What next?
I just finished watching a segment of Luminous Landscape's Camera to Print and Screen 2 video series on printing to canvas. Problem Solved; I feel foolish that I didn't mention that I was printing-on-canvas as the solution to my dilemma would have been obvious. I measured a canvas print that I did last week and it has shrunk even more than when I first measured it. I have since printed large images on Epson enhanced matte and the dimensions were spot on. Thank you for your responses and great job on the video.
