When setting up for printing out of PSE 2018 Editor under paper size it shows a selection of sizes and in addition at the bottom it says "User Defined". I want to print on a paper size 8" x 7". How do I set up to print on this different sized paper?

Open Editor , expert tab

Go to File>Print. In the dialog that  opens, look for "More Options", then "Custom Print Size"

Enter the dimensions to suit.

Thanks Hatstead but that only changes the image size to be printed on the standard sized paper. What I wanted was to print  on a specific size paper, (8 x 7) an 8 x 7 image. For example in Microsoft Word besides the standard sized paper you can enter a specific custom sized paper. Can it also be done in Elements?

In my version of word, 8x7 is not listed among the defaults. To get there I have to access printer properties and specify this size under “user defined.”

If the procedure delineated In my prior post does not work for you, suggest that you print the images via Word.

I was able to find how to specify an odd ball size of paper. After opening up the print menu in Elements Expert if you click on the page setup near the bottom left the printer properties menu come up. If you click on the paper size drop down menu you get all the paper sizes AND User Defined. If you click on that User Defined option you get another menu where you can put in any paper size. For some strange reason you just can’t print “borderless” with the oddball paper sizes.

Thanks very much for your help … without your reply I wouldn’t have found the answer.

Cheers,

Wayne

That really doesn’t answer my problem. I understand how to make different sized prints on a specific paper like 81/2 x 11 or 13 x 19 but can you specify an odd ball paper size like 7 x 8??? Under the media specifications it lists several standard sizes and then at the bottom “user defined”. How do you specify or “define” a specific size?

Thanks

Wayne

This menu is for the print size not paper size. For example you have a 8” x 12” image file, with this dialog you can change the size to 4” x 6” or to any other equivalent proportional size.

I respectfully disagree. To change image size, go to Image menu>Resize>Image size.

OK but my original question was not how to change image size … I was aware how to do that, it was how to change media, (paper) size to a non-standard size! That is somewhat more complicated however now I know how.

W? I'm having the same problem. How did you find out how to do this? Been trial and erroring it into a real headache. Thank you in advance.

I should also say, I'm using a 16" x 100' roll. I found a 16" x 20" print size in settings, but its orientation is reversed and thinks I have a 20" roll.
