Since the last Photoshop update, my photos are not printing the right size....they are approx. .25" smaller.  What do I need to do to correct this?  The image size and resolution is correct, and everything printed correctly until the latest update....help please!!

Which OS?

Which Printer?

Go to printer's website and update your printer drivers.

It is Windows 10 on a Lenovo laptop printing to a Xerox laser 6510 Phaser.
I will try to download an updated printer driver. Thank you.

Check for scaling in the print dialogue (you have to scroll down). Also click "Print Settings" in the print dialogue which takes you to the print driver properties and check for any scaling there.

 

If you don't see anything untoward in either of those settings, hold down the spacebar whilst clicking Print in Photoshop. That will reset the print dialogue.

 

Finally , if none of the above work, you could try resetting Photoshop's preferences.

Thanks. The scaling is set correct. I tried holding down the spacebar
while hitting PRINT, and got the same result.

Be useful to see screen captures of both Photoshop's Print dialog and your printer driver settings.
