I'm using PS 6.x and have an image that is W-1536px X H-1024px.  How do I print the image on an 8 X 11 sheet of paper?

TIA.

How large do you want the image? Do you want it to just fill the 8.5x11 paper ? or just print at the size it is on a piece of letter sized paper?

File>Page Setup> Paper Size-Letter ( To change the paper size)

Then go to File>Print ( The rest depends on your printer driver. You may want to tell it to scale to page.

I tried your suggestion but when I go to print, I get an error message that states "some clipping of the image will occur" because the image is larger than the paper size.  

I want the image to print on an piece of letter sized paper without clipping.

Thanks.

Did you try selecting fit to page ?
File>Print with Preview

Then check  Scale to fit Media

Then select print.

We are talking about Photoshop here...right?  I don't have File>Print with Preview.

I will look for Scale to fit media.

Yes, I have a newer version of the software so it may look differently.  You can scale it in your printer settings. another option may be going to Image> Image size   Then change the size of the images width and height to less than 8.5x11

Do you want it to print to the edge or the  inside  of the paper with a white border?

Doesn't matter to me.  I want Photoshop to resize the image so it will fit on the 8x11.5 page.

What kind of printer do you have?
Go File>Printer setup
Change it to landscape, then click ok.

Click print and see if you still get the message
