I'm sorry that I can't point you in the direction of only one software.
BUT most softwares that accompany digital cameras have the option to "Custom" resize, instead of choosing a 'size' from a list.

I use Photo Impression that came with my Canon camera.

Photoshop will likely let you do it too. And Adobe Paintshop Pro.

As for windows photo center opening, sounds to me like a configuration issue. Or settings? A 2nd software shouldn't open when you're trying to print from the other (Unless it's the printer software :wink2:)

Another trick you could try is 'inserting' the photo into a word document, if you can't work out the settings of your softwares, or install another.

  1. Open MS Word.
  2. Choose "Insert" from the main menu
  3. From that list, choose "Picture", then from "File".
  4. (then select your picture from wherever it is)
  5. Once the picture is inserted, click on it, so that it's "selected" (it will appear boxed).
  6. Then go to "Format" of the main menu, then select "Picture" from that list.
  7. In the "Picture" window, select size, and keep the aspect ratio.
Resize as you like.

Print

Hope this helps

Just wondering what you are printing on...plain white paper? I've always wanted to try this!

I'm glad to have been of help.
Ummm good size?
Ya know, it's been so long that I've done it.. couldn't tell ya.

Best I can suggest off the top of my head is to fill one sheet/page with the same picture in different sizes....
and print it.
Then see which one fits the nail you want to put it on :wink2:

OR look at a ruler, and measure the space you want to put the picture.
In Word, the size formatting option for pictures is in centimeters....
just measure, 'resize' the picture to that measurement, and voila
:green:
