Projector Image Size

I have bought this projector
http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/B1M/#gallery

However, the image size is depends on the distance between the projector and the projector screen..

However, I have to put the projector near the wall, also the projector screen on the wall...the far distance which make the image oversize...

However, seem the projector has no way to change the size of the image...

Are there any solution can do it on the computer to make the size send to the projector smaller? Changing the resolution is not help.

I'm not familiar with that projector, but I read its specifications and it does not have a zoom control on the lens (the zoom ratio is fixed). So the only way to control the size on the projector screen is via the physical distance between the projector and the screen, but that doesn't work for you in this case.

A very low-tech idea is to place whatever you want to appear on the projector screen in a movable/sizable window on the computer. There's a temptation to maximize the window or even go into full-screen mode when sending the computer display to a projector, but in this situation, using a relatively small window centered on the computer screen may give you what you're looking for. You could use a solid black desktop, close all other windows, and auto-hide the taskbar, so there won't be any distracting images around the small, centered window. Very low tech, but it may achieve what you need. Regards, Joe

Have you created a custom resolution. Or tried to, to make it fit better? Ill try to look and see if there is any other ways to get around this to get the screen working better.

Hi.

The software is not able to change that behavior.  You will have to find a physical solution, for example you could try to place the projector pretty close to the screen and then work with mirrors to widen the image to a more fitting size
