    I'm having problems printing the covers out.
    I followed their directions , but the printer cuts off the end the scan .I have a new printer ( HP 7550 ) ,I set it to Landscape & Legal paper.
    I'm using standard size glossy paper & taped another 3 inch piece to the end of it ( like the faq says to do ).
    I must be doing something wrong , could someone please give me some ideas - I'm wasting alot of ink here.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ron

    I went with the 8 1/2 x 14 paper instead and it works fine for me.
    I got a canon BJC-4200.

    Ron, try taping a 1.5 inch strip of paper to one end, feed that end into the printer. That works for me. I think the graphic is centered so using a 3 inch strip causes it to begin printing too soon (i.e. on the 3" strip).

    if you are printing using a program that forces the image to be centered, then you need to specify that you are using regular 8.5" x 11" paper so that it will print only on the photo paper. If the program tells you the cover might be cropped because of the printer just ignore the warning
