Thread: Print Output Different Than Image Dimensions! Why?

    Default Print Output Different Than Image Dimensions! Why?

    I am a big video gamer, especially for Xbox. The size of an Xbox game cover is 10.85" x 7.22". I can find images of cover art in most instances and adjust them in IrfanView. However, whenever I print the file out, it is always smaller than what I set the dimensions for. And on the printer UX, there is a section in the lower right corner that says this:

    As you can see, it shows the dimensions in centimetres and in inches. But the inches show as 10.22" x 6.83" --- and I cannot find anywhere to change that "output" to the correct ones that I need. Therefore, it always prints too small.

    Is this an IrfanView issue or a Windows issue? I've been wracking my brain trying to fix this.

    THANK YOU! However, when I click that box, the dimensions show the original size version, not the edited size of 10.84" x 7.22" --- so I changed the dimensions, click the box and IT still shows the "original" smaller size. What am I doing wrong?

    Open the Image information to check the DPI.

    My image is 200 DPI, and the width is 1444 pixels = 7.22"
