My Epson printer software does not have a simple preview and edit function.  I've got
apps that are slightly more advanced than Windows Paint.  You can preview an image
as it would appear on a standard 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of printer paper.  If needed, the
image size can be increased or decreased.  Also, the image position can be changed
before printing.  These two functions avoid wasting paper and expensive ink.

I need a similar app for html webpages.  Too many times I've printed images from webpages
that should occupy half a sheet of paper and they print the size of a postage stamp!

If I save a webpage, I need something very simple that can display the page and provide
a basic preview and edit function before printing.

I'm very aware of complex edit and creation graphical apps that can do almost anything.
A tiny applet would be best for me.

What browser are you using ?  I use Firefox and it has a print preview function where you can change the size of what you are trying to print. I inmagine that Chrome has a similar function.
