Printing from Gimp on HP Deskjet and Adobe PDF result in shrunken document on upper left hand corner

When Printing a 8.5 x 11 image I created in Gimp 2.6.8, it just recently started shrinking it about 60% and placing it on the upper left hand corner of either the paper or the pdf document. I have:

- Gone through all the settings and everything looks the way it's supposed to.  
- Newly installed PDFCreator and the same thing happens with that.
- Uninstalled and reinstalled Gimp

With all this the same thing happens.  I have a feeling it has nothing to do with all the programs that I have just mentioned.  "Very Frustrating!"

I had to go to "Printers and Faxes" uninstall all printers and reinstalling.  That fixed it.

bpexpdate -m <medialabel> -d 0

 will expire everything on the tape.

vmdelete -m  <medialabel>

will delete it

then just put the tapes in the library and inventory it and if they are barcoded they will be relabeled. otherwise you will have to label them manually.

bplabel -ev <media id> -d <tape density> -p <pool name>

I really don't know what you're talking about. Where do I put that code and will it solve my problem?

Fernbuck,

I have two questions to you:
  • How do you know the image is 8.5 x 11 - did you look at Image > Print Size?
    (by changing resolution printed image size will be changed)
  • Which settings did you control?
    In Print dialog box there is Image Settings tab where you can set the same data as in Print Size dialog box, but there are additional settings regarding placement of the image on paper (parameters Position, especially Center).
    On the Image Settings tab there is preview, too... this can help you.
