Pixmaix6820 keeps zooming in on images when printing



 I have a Pixmaix6820 that doesnt print the full image. I'm running it on a MAC (Sierra) and trying to print on kodak glossy photopaper. Everytime I print, the image is scaled up and have all the edges cut off for some reason. The 'scale to fit media' box is ticked and the image is exactly 8.5x11 at 300 dpi. Ive tried making the dpi/image a little smaller, hoping that the 'scale to fit' button would work but the image is still zoomed in.

I had a smaller canon printer before this one and it had no troubles at all so I'm a little frustrated. I'd appreciate any help!


Thank you


Also here are pics of my print settings if that helps at all

Re: Pixmaix6820 keeps zooming in on images when printing



If borderless printing is enabled, the image will be extended beyond the edges of the paper in order to guarantee the edge to edge bleed.  To prevent any cut off, you will have to print a "bordered" image instead.  This will allow you to retain the entire image.
