Make sure the scaling is correct on your printer settings.

Can you post a link to the file and tell us what size you want it to be? Some of the patterns will require other software to reduce or enlarge but it depends on the pattern. How are you saving the picture? If you click a thumbnail it will open a preview window which you can then double click to open full size and then save it. The more info you provide on which browser you are using and any info on your printer make and model might help also.

John if you download a free viewer called irfanview you can re-size and clean up images very easily.

Here is a link...
IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

Here is their tutorial...
Irfanview Tutorial

Hope this helps..

what i do is right click on the picture and select print.

this will bring up a little box with a picture in the frame. It has a bunch of choices on the right side like full sgeet, 4 x 6, 8 x 10, etc,.

there is a little check box that says fit to frame. click that and unclick it and you will see what it does, i usually unclick it.

then print it. It will come out as just about as big as the sheet will allow but not overflowing.
