How to print 4x6 photos with 4x6 photo paper on a pixma iP2820 printer using the photo program that comes with Windows 10.
When I do get a print, it has a much white space at the bottom. When I try a 4x6 photo size and use a 4x6 paper size, I get a message saying that that the photo won't fit on the selected paper. When I get the preview to be something I can live with, I get a message giving me a message box containing a support code 4102. This software isn't the only software package that presents me with much white space at the bottom of the print. I have two goals, one, to be able to print a 4x6 photo on 4x6 photo paper with no margins and two, to be able to print a 4x6 photo on 4x6 photo paper with margins. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction?
It's got to be me because I get the same results with an HP printer. Not the same error box.

Borderless printing is not supported with the PIXMA iP2820. Images printed from the iP2820 will have a border.

No borders. I get it.
Now for goal 2 printing with borders - how do I get to determine the border widths around the the picture. I consistently get a border at the bottom that is considerably larger width than the border widths of the other sides. This has been the situation ever since I started printing photos. I get the same results using a number of photo editors. It also happens on an HP inkjet printer. This seems to suggest that it is something I am doing and not the software or hardware I am using. I supposedly resize the photo to a 4x6, used that dimension in the software programs I have and used 4x6 photo paper (I select the paper size and the paper type and select the type of "file" it is - a photo. I can;t get what I want. In this case a consistent thin border of uniform width. The no border idea was an attempt to get rid of the bottom large border by just eliminating borders which might eliminate the problem.
