Printing the ACTUAL image size

This question goes out to everyone who has ever touched or knows of the HP photosmarts.

I recently got myself a clearanced (and then further reduced in price) brand new HP Photosmart 8450. Awesome printer. Does a great job, especially for 70$, despite my future ink costs.. whatever.--

My question is: HOW on earth do i print out an image at its ON SCREEN size?? Its actual size. Like, when i open up an image in PhotoShop, it tells me its size, right.. 3in x 4.8in, for example.

But when i try to PRINT the image --- and i just want to print it at its regular onscreen actual size --- the [bleep] printer/printer driver/windows?? wont let me print out the image except in one of 20 arbitrary (and traditional) sizes.

HOW do i print what i want to print at its actual size?? Anyone know of a good program or something??

I am completely baffled why it should be so difficult to print something at the size and quality that the darn image original starts off as on your computer.

Even a 4x6, for instance, would make my crystal clear 3x4.8 look like crap.

Ideas? Please help. I hate not having print freedom. :tazz:
