using Mac - High Sierra lightoom cc classic 7.4 camera raw 10.4.
I have a 4 x 6 photo paper plus semi gloss loaded in the rear tray of my canon TS8052
I select print template 4 x 6 (1)
Print settings 4 x 6 borderless
print from rear tray
One would think that this would print a 4 x 6 borderless image
but no...... out comes a 4 x 6 from the rear tray but the image is 2 x 3.
I check all my settings, clear the printer, try again - same result.
Rather than waste any more paper I search on the adobe community page and I come across this from 2015
which basically says the adobe templates are (polite) not brilliant.
"1. Not necessary to select a template! (the supplied adobe templates are mostly for A4 or Letter paper!)
2. Instead- Set your Printer for 6x4 paper in the Page Setup dialog. (as you have done)
3. In [Layout] panel- set all Margins to minimum.
4. In [Layout] panel- set Cell Size sliders to Maximum.
5. In [Image Settings] panel- Set [Zoom to fill]- off, Set [Rotate to Fit]-on"
Low and behold out comes what I wanted.
Adobe has some brilliant people working on lightroom so why doesn't ADOBE use this brilliance to set templates to
do what is in nos. 2-5 when you select (1) 4 x 6.????
the adobe templates are (polite) not brilliant.
Agree fully. All designed for 'Letter' sized paper.
So Adobe tries to be kind to LR users (esp Americans) with some templates as defaults (where 'letter' paper is still a common size in the USofA?).
But down-under in Oz, A4 (and smaller formats for home printing) is more popular, so my Print template browser panel always has the default template folder collapsed and hidden. I only ever select from my own "User templates" that I have designed and saved.
Just ignore the "Lightroom Templates" entirely.!
Same here. No-one all over Europe uses Letter format.
I'm now building my own templates since Adobe's are rubbish.
I've always used photoshop to print - much more versatile but a little time consuming.
I just used LR because it was there and a challenge.
