I've managed to recrop a photograph (actually a few) I've took and I was wondering if there was a way to resize my image. What I mean by that is I have an image I want to be 8 1/2 x 11 for printing. However the closest I can seem to the image is 8.5 x 10.08 (or something like that). So basically, I'm left with a one inch area (1/2 inch each side) which is empty.
Is there a way to enlarge my image without OVER-SIZING it? I've tried the easier methods of the "Fit" options but I just want my image (without too much distortion to the image) to fit nicely as a rectangular image on a 8.5 x 11 sheet. Can this be done in Lr4? or how about Photoshop or Fireworks?
OK... I managed to "mostly" get the image to print on a 8.5" x 11" page. However, the watermark I use when I import photos is done automatically and is slightly off... The very left side of the copyright is slightly cut off. Fortunately, By changing the background color of the page to "black" (which fits with this particular image perfectly) I was able to get the look I wanted.
Maybe I shouldn't put the visable copyright notification on the photo at import time but rather whenever I want to export it for web or print.

The issue is the minimum border imposed by your printer and/or printer driver. I suggest checking if there is a "borderless" mode in the driver (it may only be supported at specific sheet sizes, but letter size is a commonly supported one). Once you have borderless mode setup then you should be able to set the margin to 0 and then print all the way to the edge.
