Hi Folks! I'm pretty new to GIMP and was having a great time printing pictures for a couple of hours. I could import and scale them to the right size, converting them to inches. But then I tried to rotate one image and now, ever since, ALL of my images will only print out to around 6" x 7". I dragged my computer whiz wife in to help and now we both have been trapped here for hours! We have spent tried resetting the printer, resetting the brouser, resetting the scale size, the orientations, trying different images newly imported . . . and a hundred other things!
When I test the printer's test page, it prints normally. The printer settings all look right, but the printer setting in Gimp Page Settup will only stay at A4, whatever that is. It also will not hold the Landscape selection. Also, when I was printing earlier today and I scaled the images I still saw a pretty large image in my screen. Now I see tiny little images when they are scaled to any size I seek--not that they will even print at any size other than 6" x 7" (ish). (Original artwork is at 3000 dpi.)
When we sent the images to a different printer from Gimp they still came out small, even though we had them sized at 8.25" x 10.5", approximatly (scaled).
Finally, we uninstalled GIMP and reinstalled it anew. But I'll be damned if the images are just the same as before--showing up tiny and printing to a max of 6 x 7! Can anyone help? I gave as much info as I could to provide clues...
