Printing to PhotoSmart 4x6 paper ??

By sszretter ·
This seems like it should be simple --
I have an HP Photosmart P1100 printer, and I loaded HP 4x6 premium paper into it.

But, I cant figure out how to correctly print to it from my Windows 2000 machine.

I try printing a picture from my browser, macromedia fireworks, and even microsoft paint, and generally have the same results -- the computer spools several pages - as few as 3, as many as 50 in fireworks!!

The pictures is 5 megapixel. It seems like it is trying to print the whole thing at THAT size!! Shouldnt the software or printer driver SCALE it down??

In the print dialog I made sure to select the proper paper TYPE (4x6 glossy hp), and paper size (4x6 photo paper).

One time I tried using the scale to fit option in the print dialog, and that made it TOO small. I chose to scale from 8.5x11 to 4x6... So im not sure if thats the fix.

I even tried scaling the picture in fireworks to 4 inches by 6 inches, but it STILL prints multiple pages! Plus shouldnt there be an easier way without having to SCALE everything beforehand??

Is there special software I need other than what I listed, or am I missing a step or setting????

Please help!!
