Printing Wallet-sized photos in iPhoto '08

I have a photo i took on my digital camera that I am trying to crop and print as a wallet-sized image. I have resized it to a 2x3 size, but when I go to the Print settings, the photo is massively zoomed in and i can't capture the entire image in the 2x3 space, I only get a portion of the face instead of the entire headshot. I try to edit the mask and realign and zoom out on the image, but it is already zoomed out as far as it will allow (even though there is a lot of photo not being displayed).
Is there any way to work around this? Seems odd that if i want to print a wallet photo from an image i took i should be able to scale the entire image down to fit and not have to print it as an 8x10.

Yes, I have also selected 2x3 in the print window. That is where the problem is occurring. If i leave it as standard 8x10 then I get the entire image in the photo print area. When I select anything smaller, then instead of sizing the entire image down to the new dimensions it basically just grabs that area from the larger picture and effectively zooms in on it. So instead of my daughter's entire head, i just get her nose and eye in the 2x3 image.

  • Can I print wallet sized photo's in iPhoto '11?

    I've always printed multiple wallet sized photo's on a single sheet of photo paper. After upgrading to iPhoto '11 is there is no option to print wallets?

    There does not appear to be a way to do this with a single image selected. But if you select multiple images, and then select to print and then select Contact Sheet from the examples shown in the right hand column that appears, then this will print all the selected photos onto a single sheet.

  • Printing wallet sized photo sheet

    I don't seem to be able to figure out how to print a sheet of wallet sized photos!  Every website that I have found refers to iPhoto 11 but includes screen shots of the printing options that are not available in the version that I am running (9.5.1).  I'm at a total loss!  Any suggestions?  I've attached a screen shot of my print options page.

  • Having trouble printing borderless A4 photos in iPhoto 4

    Hey there, I want to print A4 borderless pics using IPhoto and im having trouble with the top and the bottom of the photo having white lines.
    I guess I need to constrain it to the correct ratio before printing, but I cant get the correct setting. I have no problem with 6x4 borderless prints, but im stumped with the A4.
    Anyone have any ideas?
    Cheers, Adrian

    Figured it out.

  • How to print custom cropped photos in iPhoto

    I have several photos (most actually) with custom cropping. When I use iPhoto to print to an 8x10 frame size on 8.5x11 photo paper, it just fills the space and cuts off the photo. Is there a "size to fit" option somewhere I'm missing so that the entire photo is displayed as cropped fully realizing this will not "fill up" the entire 8x10 space???

    I'm wondering if you ever solved this within iPhoto?  I'm experiencing a similar issue in iPhoto'11 (9.4.1).  I have a series of square images.  I want to print them as square images on 4x6 paper.  I select my image and choose print from the file menu.  I then get the iPhoto print dialogue which is completely different from the print dialogues used through OSX (10.7.4).  Paper size selected is 4x6 borderless.  Under print size I get only the options of 3x5, 3x2 and 2x2, and custom of course.  The problem I have is that the image has been zoomed way in, as if iPhoto was printing a 12x12 inch image.  I can find no way to zoom the image back out to constrain it print within the paper size.  If I go to custom and set up 4in by 4in, then I do get a 4in square printing window, but the image is still zoomed way in.  Additionally, the iPhoto print dialogues allow no access to adjust print settings for different paper types.  After I send the image to print, another dialogue comes up which allows me to choose from all of my printing presets, but I can't adjust them.  Pulling my hair out!

  • I would like to print and 8x10 as a full page of wallet size photos

    I would like to scan an 8x 10 picture and print as a page of wallet size pictures. How do I do that?

    Wallet sized photos are 2" x 3" or 2.5" x 3.5" for the most part which will give you 8 photos per page. So do the following:
    1 - Once the photo is in iPhoto put it in an album and crop it to the wallet size ratio you want: 2:3 or 2.5:3.5
    2 - Duplicate the photo 7 times so you have 8 copies to fill a letter sized page.
    3 - Select all the photos in the album and start the print process.
    4 - Select the paper size in the upper right hand cornder and select the print size in the lower right hand corner.
    5 - Print

  • ORDER A PRINT ONLINE OF A SQUARE PHOTO IN IPHOTO

    How can I order a print of square photos in IPHOTO without them cropping it out as it happened, instead of scaling it down to fit the paper and leave a white border as I assumed they would do??
    MACCBOOK   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    Ricardo:
    You can't. iPhoto doesn't offer a square format. All prints are borderless. If you want a square print you'll need to use one of the other online providers.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

    Hi! My name is Tom from San Diego, CA. I have the exact same question as you. That is, I would like to be able to print out a photo from iphoto with the date that picture was taken displayed on the face of it. In this way, someone looking at that picture in a photo album years later would know when it was taken. Did you ever find a method to print copies of photos out of iphoto with the date displayed on the print? Thanks for your help!

  • Export photo from iPhoto so I can get it printed at store

    A novice I am.
    I want to take a photo out of iPhoto and bring it to a photo shop so I can get it made into a Holiday card. What is best way to do this?
    Is it possible to email a jpeg file attachment to a email that is just a file that you double click and it opens up the file, rather than as soon as you open up the email the photo opens ? Like regular email ?

    Yes you can email it driectly from iPhoto if you use a dedicated email service<<<</div>
    No, don't do that for this purpose. iPhoto deliberately shrinks the file to make it suitable for emailing. Even the "large" size is not full-sized. These smaller files are intended primarily for screen-viewing.
    If you want to email a version suitable for printing, export it first. Exit iPhoto and then use your email package normally. That being said, be forewarned about the issue with mailbox sizes. If you're emailing full-sized photos, you might want to email only one or two at a time and wait until the recipient has emptied his/her mailbox.
    The better solution is uploading to the photo finisher. In fact, I distribute pics to family members by uploading to the public folder of my iDisk and giving them access to download from there.

  • IPhoto freezes when trying to print small size photos

    I'm trying to print the smallest sized photo. Everytime I ask it to print it freezes and I have to force quit. If I print a bigger sized photo, such as 4X6, it works fine. Earlier in the day I was able to print the small photos. I've trashed the plist and restarted but it's still doing it.

    The settings that I show in the screen shot give you, as owner, complete access to that folder and all files inside. I also set my admin name as the group because I'm the only user on the computer and set others are read only. As long as you have read and write access you good to go. Then the bottom check boxes apply those permissions and will unlock any file that may have inadvertently been locked.
    You can set the permissions a different way as follows:
    Setting Permissions for iPhoto Library Folder
    Select the iPhoto Library folder and type Command-I.
    When the Info window comes up go to the Ownership and Permissions section and make sure You have Read & Write permission and that the Owner and Group have Read & Write also. Others - Read Only.
    Then click on the "Apply to enclosed items..." button.

    How can I print multiple copies of the same photo onto one sheet of paper?  Do I have to Duplicate the photo in iPhoto and then select them all?

    no - you simply have to select the option to print mucliples of a photo on a page
    select the photo and go to the file menu ==> print - select the printer, paper size and print size and click customize - in the tool bar click on the settings icon (the gear looking thingy) and select "multiple of the same photo per page" and the preview will reflect this option showing a full page of the selected size photos
