Using Canon`s New `my image garden` software
« on: November 20, 2014, 09:32:07 PM »
I have just had to replace my old Canon Pixma ip8500 printer with the newer model Ip7250,

I am using the supplied software called `my image garden` , and for the life of me, I cannot seem to find how to print a 10x8 inch image on a sheet of A4 paper.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

I have downloaded the latest version of the old software `easy-photoprint EX and  may have to install that

thanks in advance

Did you get any further on this Gordon?

I don't have the printer or software you mention but I have had the same problem with my Epson printers. I've ended up using PS, opening a new 'document', input A4, add the image (place) and resize that to the size you want. Save and then print.

You should get your image showing as X x X (your size... 8x10, 10x8... whatever) on an A4 size sheet, white background being the A4.

If you've already sorted then great :)

still not sussed how to print in different sizes on A4 paper, but I remembered that we have picassa on the pc, and it is so easy to do it there, I use the Canon software for printing cd/dvd`s as it has loads of different layouts.

Must really get around to browsing and commenting on here again, seem to have not been able to make time.

thanks again Frank

Good to hear you have found a work round - even if not what you had wanted.

Tell me about it... I'm only able to put some time in here now with having to be off work because of the trapeziectomy op! Still... I may get in to a 'routine' again and be able to keep some traffic going here along with you :)

just read up on your op Frank, not something I would want to go through, the hernia op was bad enough, hope that it does not cause you too much bother, like I said, I will try and get on and comment more

Thanks Gordon. It's not as bad as it sounds... just takes some time to recover and rehabilitate. I had the right hand done back in August 2013 and it's now pretty much fully usable - a twinge now and then  but far better than it was. I'm hoping for the same with the left and that it will be pretty much normal by March 2016 - RETIREMENT :)

Re this software... Have you asked Canon Support about what you are wanting to achieve? Maybe the FAQs? If yes - or no - could you try it as a Collage print? Just had a quick look and you can put and I'd expect, rearrange a number of shots for that... place as you want. Maybe placing the image you want in the middle of the A4 sheet, resize to 10x8 but not place/select any other shots?

I'd possibly give that a go if I was trying to do what you are. It's just a suggestion - may work :)

I have also downloaded , but not installed, windows 7 compatible Canon software called `easy photo print EX` to try if I had no joy otherwise, I think the options that I have right now are the best for my immediate needs,. there are some better choices on the new software which I will have to sit down and have a good look at some day.
