Kodak Borderless Photo Paper

I bought some 4x6 photo paper, the kind with a small removable border around the the whole thing that allows you to print borderless photos.

How do you line up the picture so it prints in the center of the paper and not on the border ?

I thought it was supposed ot overprint on to the border a little. So when you remove the outside strips, it appears borderless.

Or, more likely, I'm misinterpretting your question.

Your right danw, I know it supposed to print a little on the border.
I'm talking about centering the picture onto the 4x6 paper.
Since it's not a normal 8 1/2 by 11 page, how do you get the picture centered on the smaller 4x6 paper ?

Well there should be some way of doing it in the printing preferences of whatever program you're using to print the pictures with. If not there, then check the printer settings in Windows. It should at least allow you to choose the size of the paper your printing on and center the image onto the paper itself.

The only option my Lexmark gives me is for a 4x6 index card.
I tried centering the picture but it didn't come out right.

I have Printmaster 11 and there isn't any options for it in there either.

Most printers have little sliders to help you line paper up--by either centering it or left- or right-aligning it. I take it your printer doesn't have such a doo-hickey?

Selecting the correct paper size is probably a very important step. Did you try creating your own paper size in the printer setup?

I have a Lexmark Z11. It has a slider on the left side only.
I can't create my own paper size in the printer setup.

The only info it gives is what paper type to use (glossy) and what print quality to use (1200 dpi).
