Printing size problem in Lightroom 5

I need help. When I print from Lightroom 5 with the settings noted in these screen shots I do not get the proper size print. You can see that I'm using 17" X 22" paper and the print should be 14.003" X 21.042" which is a 1.5 aspect ratio. From the first screen shot you can see that Lightroom 5 does diplay exactly what I intended. What actually is printed is a version that is 12.55" X 18.25" with a aspect ratio of aproximately 1.45. I've wasted two sheets of 17" X 22" paper and the associated ink and I cannot fathom why this is happening.
Also, it is printing off center even though the preview in Lightroom 5 is centered.
Any ideas?

I don't have any experience with this Epson printer but I observed a few things in your screen shots.
a) this might have nothing to do with the print size, and yet  ... the screen shot of your image shows a size of 14.003" X 21.042" @ 197 ppi.
Apart that this number is a bit low for a quality print, I wonder if this is one of the reasons why the print size is different than in Lr. You have set the printer to print <SuperPhoto - 2880 dpi>. That means your printer has to create 2880 dpi from 197 dpi. I have heard the pros always recommending to print with a resolution that is an integer of the largest printer res. So for 2880 dpi you could print at (2880/4 =) 720 dpi, or at (2880/8=) 360 dpi. So what does your printer do if you send it an image at 197 ppi/dpi? Maybe it's not very good at math ...
Try this: Export the file in Lr (as a JPG or as a TIFF) in a size of exactly 14.003" X 21.042" at 240 ppi (or better at 360 ppi); re-import in Lr (by checking >Add to this catalog> in the Export Dialog) and print it.
b) In your printer settings you show "Border: None". This is probably the reason why your print is off-center. If you tell your printer to print without a border it prints from the left side with minimum border. Specify a border that remains when you subtract paper size from print size, or - if you have that feature in the printer dialog  - center the print.
c) You show a paper size of 17x22". It seems to me that this is not an original Epson paper; at least I can't see a paper of that size in the Epson manual.
In my printer (and it's not an Epson) I have to add "odd" paper sizes in order to be able to use them (it's sort of like installing the "odd' paper size). I don't know if it's necessary to add "odd" paper sizes in an Epson or if it accepts the "odd" paper size just by entering it as you did.

  • CS4 Print size problem

    Help please, this is my first time printing in CS4 and I can't get the print to fill the whole media. The print is only 1/4 size of the media off to one corner even though I checked the "Center Image" box and it doesn't matter what paper size I use. It is always 1/4 the size of the media that I select to print on. The print is beautiful and correct in every way except for the size. I have used the adjustments in "Page Setup" and "Scaled Print Size" individually as well as in combination but it still only print 1/4 the size and a corner of the paper. I never have a problem with CS2 and the R1800 before. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Well, with my Canon Pro9500, you have to select "boundless printing" or else there will always be a margin around it, check that.

  • Print size problems with Epson R3000 and Mountain Lion

    I am using Mountain Lion on a 2008 MBP and an Epson R3000 printer.  I can not get prints to size to my paper.  In aperture I am choosing custom since there is no option for 11.7X16.5.  I have set the print size to the same and still it does not work.  I tried both landscape and portrait but that did not work.

  • Printing Size Problem

    Something strange is happening with my print command and my Mac.  So far I notice it happening regularly on Delta.com and Apple.com!  When I attempt to print say, my boarding passes on Delta.com or the comparison of the new iPad vs. the iPad2 on Apple.com, the PDF preview shows me page 1 looking perfect, but pages 2 through x are enlarged to the point that only what would be the lower left-hand quadrant of the page is shown in the sidebar and in the preview pane when I click on any of the thumbnails in the sidebar.  And if I print the document, that's exactly what I get.  But...if I print the documents from my laptop PC using the very same printer the job was sent to using my Mac, everything previews and prints perfectly.  Can anyone address this issue and suggest how I might resolve it?  Thanks for help, in advance.  PS: I'm using OS X v10.7.3 and everything is up to date.  Thanks.

  • Printing layout problem with Lightroom CC 2015 Release

    Hello,
    I am working with the following configuration :
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010)
    OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.3
    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC 2015 Release
    EPSON Stylus Pro 3880
    I tried to print two images on a Super A3 paper sheet with an EPSON Stylus Pro 3880 directly from Lightroom and here is an example of what I expected (I resized and added a black border for better visibility on the forum):
    This is the preview I have in the printing module of Lightroom and this is also what I have when I print to a JPEG file with Lightroom.
    Sadly, after I launched the printing job, this is what came out of the printer:
    As we can see, the layout of the two pictures has been shifted toward the top of the paper sheet (cropping the top of the first image in the process) and about 30% of the right part of the layout has not been printed.
    Do you have any idea of what I am doing wrong here?
    For your information, I do not print very often so I am not 100% sure that I set everything correctly. However, I have been successfully printing in the past and it was with the same MacBook Pro on the same EPSON Stylus Pro 3880 printer but it was with OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.1 and with Lightroom 5.x (I cannot remember exactly which version).
    Moreover, because my print was urgent, I retried with a Windows machine running Lightroom 4.x with the same printer and it was a success. So I doubt that my initial settings on my MacBook Pro were wrong although I am not 100% sure.

    I am in France and I found out that EPSON is providing at least two different files for its v9.33 driver that relate to the Stylus Pro 3880 with OSX:
    epson16738.dmg: US version (https://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?UseCookie=yes&oid=141552&prodoid =63085147&infoType=Downloads&d…)
    epson379436eu.dmg: French version (Support et téléchargements - Epson Stylus Pro 3880 - Epson)
    and I realize that I was using the US driver which.
    After few minutes of refection, I realized that the 3880 driver that I installed on my MacBook pro was the only piece that was present when my prints failed and absent when my prints succeeded. So I though it had found out the cause of my problems until I tried with the french driver (epson379436eu.dmg)...
    In the meantime Adobe has release of new version of lightroom so let me recap my new configuration:
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010)
    OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.3
    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC 2015.0.1 [ 1018573 ] (info available in Help menu > System info > Lightroom version)
    EPSON Stylus Pro 3880
    Epson driver v9.33 epson379436eu.dmg
    ... and the result of my test is ... nothing at all! Lightroom sends the the print job to the printer but nothing comes out of it.
    However, when I printed to a file from lightroom and then tried to print this file with OS X Preview on the Epson 3880, it worked perfectly.
    It also worked when I printed from Photoshop CC (2014.2.2).
    It also worked when I printed from Lightroom but with a different printed and driver (Canon MF8580Cdw).
    Therefore, among the five elements of my configuration cited above, there is none for which the printing job is always failing. It is hard to find out what is the faulty piece of software!

  • Lightroom automaticaly enlarges print size. How do you stop this?

    How do you keep Lightroom from changing the print size? For example, if I have a 4.5 x 7.5 image ( the image size displayed in PS), LR seems to want to make it larger than this size, such that it fits into an arbitrary cell size designated by the "Fine Art Mat" template. I select this template because the other single cell templates want to enlarge it even more.
    How do you tell Lightroom to leave the image size alone? Right now I have to open the image in PS, check the exact size dimensions, then switch back to LR and specify these dimensions in the cell size, which rounds the numbers off to two decimal places. This is time consuming and awkward. Why isn't the default to print the image its actual size instead changing to fit an arbitrary cell size in a template? Lightroom is suppose to make things simpler, but in this case it makes it more complicated.
    Also, if you want a specific size image and ppi, is there some way to specify the size like you can do in PS?

    Alexander,
    What I mean is print size. I agree that it is possible to specify a cell size, which is how print size is specified in LR. The problem is that LR doesn't know what size the image is suppose to be printed at. This is not my fault, but a fault in the design of LR.
    The actual print size of a digital image is determine by its number of pixels and the specified resolution. These parameters are encoded in each image file. LR fails to recognize this information, ignores the information and automatically changes these parameters to fit into an arbitrary cell dimension/resolution.
    This is LR fault and not the photographer. It creates a very real issue to not only photographers who scan artwork but also for photographers who have regularly made prints in the past of their own work or artwork they reproduce for others. For example I and many photographers make prints of our work, exhibit this work and sell it. Our image files have encoded in them the pixel dimension/resolution, thus the print size on paper. When a print is ordered, then we want to be able to print it out quickly at this encoded print size. This should be a zero step process, as far as image print sizing goes, since we have already previously encoded the print size.
    Print sizing in LR is not a zero step process for previously encoded files, it involves the steps outlined in my original posts. This is an issue to many photographers who sell prints of their work or reproduce artwork of other artists. Granted it only takes a minute or two completing the steps I have outlined, but this is a nuisance, considering that it could be very simply avoided by the suggestions outlined by myself and other posters to this thread.

  • Setting print size to A3 or bigger using Lightroom 5 for printing at a print shop

    Hi everyone. I have just bought and installed Lightroom 5 and need to set my print size to A3 and in the future even bigger. I do not have the facility at home and need to have them sized correctly for the print shop so they do not have to waste time resizing them. I am at a loss how to do this. I cant find any settings for this size print. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Carmella. A3 is roughly 42 x 29.7 cm.

    You can usually set custom paper sizes in the print driver but simplest is just to let Lightroom do it. Go to the print panel and in Print Job select JPEG file. Set your file resolution to (typically) 300 ppi, quality, anything above 90 is good (100 is overkill). Then turn on custom file dimensions and set the size to whatever you want. Make sure you set the output sharpening to the correct medium type and level and that you select the correct color profile for your printshop. This will give you very high quality prints.

  • Printing, new problem, tiny size, not cured by any steps identified in support.

    A new problem a few weeks old. When I print from Firefox, the result is a very tiny image printed at the top part of the page. If I change the settings, it chops each page up into 4 pages and prints a quarter on each page. I do not have this problem if I print from IE, so not a printer problem. I have been through every single step in the help topic on printing problems and any step suggested in answer to a forum question. No joy.

    If Firefox is not using the whole sheet of paper, this can be caused by having extracted the wrong paper size settings from Windows when reading the print driver data. Clearing it can involve finding some obscure settings, but here goes:
    (1) In a new tab, type or paste '''about:config''' in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.
    (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste '''print''' and pause while the list is filtered
    (3) For each setting for the problem printer, right-click and Reset it. The fastest way is to right-click with the mouse and then press the r key on the keyboard with your other hand.
    Note: In a couple other threads involving Brother printers, the preference '''printer_''printer_name''.print_paper_data''' was set to 256 and when the user edited it to 1 that fixed the paper size problem. If you see a 256 there, you can edit the value by doubling-clicking it or using right-click>Modify.
    Any improvement?

  • Image size problem when printing

    After printing a few 6" x 4" prints on my Epson Stylus Photo printer I found that all my images were enlarged so cropped off slightly.  I now find that if I pre set the image size in library custom mode (6000x4000) first before print then they print the correct size.  Is this normal practice or can I set the correct image size in print mode so as not to crop off?  All my original images are either raw or tiff and considerably larger than print size.  In print mode all my margins are set to 0.00 and cell size to 6.00 x 4.00.

    If you are going to print an image at 6x4, then you need to first use the crop tool in Lightroom and crop your image to a 6x4 aspect ratio. If your image is any other aspect ratio, the image will wind up enlarged and some of the image will not fit on the paper, as you have seen.

  • Printing problem with Lightroom 2.7

    Hi,
    I use Windows 7- 64 bit OS and Lightroom 2.7. When I print (Epson 2880) from Lightroom, my shadows print much darker and I lose shadow details. I can correct by over exposing shadows thru trial and error which means 2 or 3 wasted prints. Can anyone suggest anything to address this problem?

    My Epson Stylus Pro 3880 is not getting the print size correct from the new upgrade Lightroom. Am running Window  8.1 64 bit. Help please!

    I have never seen that in the years that I have been using Lightroom. But can you not simply is just the cell size of your image in the Lightroom print module to create your white border and then just print? That's what I do.
    The paper size selected in 8.5 x 11". Then I adjusted the cell size to get the appropriate border. I also added a stroke border to this print.

  • Printing Problems with Lightroom 5

    I cannot get Lightroom 5 to print to my Epson 3880 in Mac OS X 10.8.4.  Lightroom 4 works just fine.  However, from Lightroom 5, it starts spooling and then nothing happens.
    I've tried reinstalling drivers, restarting CUPS, rebooting, restarting Lightroom, power cycling the printer, etc. etc.   Lightroom 4 works great, Lightroom 5 does not.  This appears to clearly be a bug with Lightroom 5.
    Any suggestions?

  • I can't change print sizes in certain folders!

    This is a maddening problem!
    I have an HP 8750, which I have no problems with.
    I just got a Kodak 5100 printer. The problem is that in certain folders, if I try to change the print size of an image, say Letter to Borderless 4x6, it doesn't stick! In the upper left region, it'll show the new size I selected, but the margins, cell size, image size, etc., don't change.
    This only happens in certain folders within the Library! If I move an image from a folder that has the problem into another folder that's working properly, I can resize the images in that folder. If I move it back to the "bad" folder, it won't work again. Likewise, taking an image from a good folder to a bad one makes it so I can't change the size.
    This only happens with the 5100 printer. If I switch to the HP, I can set the paper size just fine, even in a "bad" folder. If I switch back to the 5100, it goes back to the size I set before.
    It also only happens in Lightroom. If I export the image into Photoshop, it works fine.
    I'm thinking this is a bug.

    Here's a random sampling of folder names that work and don't work:
    works:
    E:\Digital Photos\Maria2
    E:\Digital Photos\Maria and Lei\Lollipop
    doesn't work:
    E:\Digital Photos\Maria and Lei\Yellow
    E:\Digital Photos\Maria
    E:\Digital Photos\London\fig
    E:\Digital Photos\London\rejects
    Notice there are 2 subfolders of E:\Digital Photos\Maria and Lei\, and one works, one doesn't.
    Now I haven't systematically checked every file in any particular folder, but if I find that one file in a folder works or doesn't work, every other file I randomly pick so far has also worked or not worked just like the first one.

    The new printer is now setup but this printer may be using the In OS driver (Class) rather than the HP Full Function driver.
    To change the printer to use the HP Full Function driver follow the following instructions. I would recommend changing the driver to the HP Full Function driver as the User can then use features such as Custom paper sizes.
    Go back into Control Panel and choose devices and Printers, right click on the newly created printer and choose Printer Properties
    Choose the Advanced Tab
    Click on the driver section drop down and choose the Driver for the printer that does not have the words Class driver after it.
    Click apply and then OK and the driver will be changed to the HP Full Function driver for the printer.
    The user should try this configuration and see if they still experience problems.
