Issue with centering an image when printing

Hi.
I have googled but found nothing to help me with my problem.
When I try to print an image in CS4 & I tick on 'centre image' in the position section of the printing. Yet when printed it will be printed more to a corner. I have a HP photosmart B8350 & I use a Mac with latest OS.
Thanks

Have you looked at the properties of your printer's driver software? Sometimes they override. See if that has an option to centre the image.

And where will the properties be? I have looked in the HP folder & launched all the apps in there & no sign of properties in any.

Check to make sure the image is not being scaled before printing.

I struggled with an HP deskjet 3822 and NEVER got it to centre prints. No matter what I did, they were always a bit off-centre. I finally gave up and gave it to my daughter who wasn't going to print any photos! I concluded that even if all the "centre image" boxes were ticked, it was allowing for (insisting on?) an invisible margin on the left of the page. Totally infuriating. I bought an Epson R340 and never regretted it. Hoping to get a bigger and better Epson some day so I can print A3+ with the extra inks for Mono printing.

I habe the B8350. It prints A3+, the images are excellent except for the damn of centre.

Click print...and then in the window that appears there should be a an option to set paper type etc. There may be several tabs each with a different set of controls. One should have an option to centre...hopefully.
