Would someone please remind me how to print a photo using PAINT?

 

  • I click the PAINT icon on my W10 desktop; click File and OPEN the file I want <Baby at Beach.jpg>.
  • I click PRINT and I get a hard copy on my Hp Deskjet printer.
  • But the copy is overly large, about 7.5 x 7.5 inches.

 

How do I size the photo to be 2” wide by 3” high? How do I get to the Paint HELP screens?

 

Thanks.  ...batpark

Click on the down arrow in the upper left.  That should open the menu.  Select Print then Page Setup.  There is an option there to set the scaling. Click on Adjust To; and change the 100 to some smaller number.  2/7.5 would be about 27.  

 

There is also a Resize button on the Home page which can change the apect ratio.
