Doesn't sound like a huge issue except that I print photos quite regularly, especially for school. So far I can print photos directly from online, but it prints the whole webpage, making the photo very small. I can print photos put into a Word Document and I can print text. My printer is an Epsom XP-210. I cannot for the life of me find the uncheck box for "Print to File." None of my searching or sweeping the user manual has helped. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer. I cannot locate the printer drivers in the device manager to uninstall. Down below are photos of my issue and some of the "options" given to me. I didn't have this problem with my previous printer, so I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong here. I only just got this device this last weekend and I am certain I followed all the instructions.

but it prints the whole webpage

 

I think that is your problem - you are printing the whole web-page when you click 'Print' rather than just the image you want.

 

You need to select the image and paste it or save it to your hard drive before you try to print it. Two ways to do it, usually one of them works. Right click on the image and in the menu that pops up select either 'Copy image' or 'Save image'. Copy is easier but not always available. If you can copy it, then you can paste it into any image editor and print it from there. If nothing else, you have 'Paint' in Win 7 - 'Start - All programs - Accessories - Paint'.

 

If you have to go the 'Save as' route, save the image somewhere convenient - 'downloads' will do fine - then open it with your image editor and print, or insert the image into a Word document if that is your preference and print that.

 

Oh, and I suppose I don't have to tell you that most images on the web are somebody's copyright ?

Well, first that is my art up there that I was running a test on (image can be found at here).

 

Second, from those photos you can see I have the picture saved on my Harddrive and it is not allowing me to print it. Repeating what I said up there, So far I can print photos directly from online, but it prints the whole webpage, making the photo very small. I can print photos put into a Word Document and I can print text.** I have never had a printer not allow me to uncheck the "print to file" box. Every google search I've done has not had a fix for this. I have installed and re-installed drivers. I've gone backwards before the first printer installation on my computer and nothing is allowing me to print pictures. Not PNG or JPEG files.

 

So, no. My problem is I cannot print photos from my HD at all. If you look at the first photos it shows that my printer requires an output file path. From the Hard Drive.

 

** Bolded to show printing tests I have done to try and figure out what ways I can print a photo from my printer.

I have to say I am not quite sure what you are doing - I have never had a printer ask me for an output file path.

 

I have just been to the link you gave to this image in your last post and opened it. I then right clicked on the image of the two characters facing each other, selected 'Save image as . . .' and saved it to  my hard drive. I then opened the image in Irfanview - an excellent viewer, but not in any sense a graphics package - then clicked 'File - print' . The only two options I selected were 'Landscape' and 'Best fit to page' and I have an image beside me that measures 10.2 x 8.0 inches.

 

Having said that, I just went into my photo collection and, selecting a photo at random, right clicked on it and selected 'Print' with no other optiions. When the printer screen opened I just clicked print and now have an image full A4 size (297 x 210 mm) borderless image. Considering I just used the stock paper in the printer it's not evven too bad a quality.

 

I think your answer is to open the image in some viewer or graphics application and print it from that.
