    Hi,
    I recently used iPhoto to print some pictures (scanned and digitally taken) and noticed that they are automatically being trimmed/cropped to fit the picture size. Is there some option to turn that off? Or should i say is there an option that ic an choose to not crop the printed photos?
    I'm using iPhoto 08 (7.1.5).

    Did you find a resolution to this problem? I have been searching and can't seem to find how to fix this problem.

    The problem is, is that iPhoto print sizes, eg 4x6, 5x7 are not the same ratio as the size of the photo, therefore the pictures will be cropped to fit. The only way around this is to export the photo and print it from another application.

    Do you have a recommendation of which software would do the job?

    Any word processor/presentation software will do. I use Pages. Preview will do it, but I haven't figured out how to stop the image from filling the page.
