Every paper size has a different shape, and none probably match the shape of the images produced by your digital camera. This little utility will create a layer showing which parts of an image will fit on the paper when printed. A wide selection of print sizes are included. Using it will help you layout your image so that important pieces aren't cut off by the printer/lab.

This script-fu was developed under Gimp-2.0 and Gimp-2.4

The script doesn't work for Gimp 2.6. Please update.

March 2013 and it still doesn't work.

This is such a valuable tool - the concept alone is worth a score. However, there is some config not working. Firstly, I am not sure if there is a font / text config missing as the options do not display the Print Sizes in the drop down list. I can see the photo sizes, but not page sizes (next to some icons?) Secondly if I guess a size and click OK I get an error: Error while executing (script-fu-mask-for-prints 1 2 12 1) set!:unbound variable: print_w I am using Gimp 2.4.6 on WindowsXP
