I love my Epson 3800 printer but it really annoyed me today can anyone help please. I was trying to print a 12x18" picture on Hahnemuhle fine art pearl set to 17" x 22" on the epson. It didn't want to know, all i had was a portion of the picture, 3 goes later and I gave up put in some epson semigloss A2 and hey presto printed the right size. The paper was a little bit curly but I didn't think this would matter as it accepted it ok, eventually. Would the curl make the printer print the wrong size?
Many thaks Julie... very frustrated!!

Saves the need for creating your own colour profiles in most instances.

I use QImage with my 3800 - It's a very reasonably priced rip that dies all the resizing, sharpening and printing I need.
