Is there a way in Elements to specify a standard size image that is not one of the ones automatically displayed?  That is, I want a 5x8.5 images, not a 5x7 image.  Is it possible to add to the existing list.  Right now I use "custom" to get this size, but I have to do it every time I print this size.

Yes, it's possible to save a custom print size, but it may depend on your printer's driver.  Here is how I was able to do it, using my HP printer:

  1. In the Print dialog, click on the Page Setup button. 
  2. My HP Printer Dialog opens.  I chose the Features tab.
  3. Under Paper Size options, I chose Custom which brought up another dialog
  4. I set the custom width and height
  5. Gave the custom size a name
  6. Clicked Save
  7. Clicked OK
  8. Note the warning that you have to exit all of the dialogs and reenter the print settings window
  9. Now back in the Print dialog my custom page settings have been saved in the Select Paper Size box

Hopefully, this will give you some idea of how it is done with your printer.

. . .  it wasn't quite so complicated with my Epson printer once I found the printer's Advanced tab.
