Hi there. I am very confused and frustrated, and I am hoping someone here will be able to help me. I am trying simply to print images, but my printer insists on resizing them.
I spent a lot of time in paint.net creating a set of personalized playing cards of an unusual size: 2.5 inches by 4.75 inches. Now that I have finished the cards, I want to print them out. Each card is saved as an image file of that size.
I am not even trying to print them onto paper of that particular size. I just want to be able to print images of the cards onto regular sheets of letter-sized cardstock, and then cut them from the cardstock by hand.
It never occurred to me that a printer would refuse to print an image at the size specified in the image file....but I can't get my Kodak printer (Kodak Hero 3.1 All-in-One) to do it. I have tried printing it two ways: 1) directly from the image file in paint.net, and 2) from inside the Kodak AiO Home Center program that installed with the printer. Either way, the box that comes up when I try to print forces me to choose from a small group of standard print sizes for the image. These range from "wallet size," through 3"x5" and 4"x6", to "full page." I cannot for the life of me find any way to print the image at its actual size, even when I uncheck "fill page."
I called Kodak this afternoon and spent much too long on the phone with a representative who was as clueless as I and finally told me that "This does not seem to be possible with this printer."
Does that even make sense? Could I honestly be asking too much from a printer, to simply print an image without resizing, as it exists in the image file?!
Thanks for any help you can give. I am feeling very annoyed at Kodak right now, and want to know if I'm missing something.
