I've just switched from Windows 10 to Mac Big Sur, I used to use Qimage, a professional printing program for all of my photo prointing, and was happy with it.

 

Qimage isn't available for the Mac, so I've been trying to use Photoshop CC to print, and not having any luck.

 

I have a 6x4" photo DPI 300, when I bring up the Print dialog, 'Scale to Media' is checked and the image shows fine in the preview box. However Photoship crops the image and consequently only prints a small section of the image.

 

Any help appreciated.

Can you show us a screen capture of both the Photoshop Print dialog and as importanly, the printer driver? 

Qimage One is available for the Mac; it's a slightly different product and feature set than the original Win only version, but it's excellent.

Thanks for the tip about Qimage, i've downloaded the trial and the photos print just fine using it.

 

Here's the screenshots you requested, just trying to print an old family photo. There does appear to be a small issue in the driver that you can see in the photo, as paper size in inches does not tally with the size in centimetres, but that cannot be the issue as only about a quarter of the photo (left side) actually gets printed.
