    Hi all, l am very new to photo printing and have just bought myself the mg7550.
    When I print off a photo direct from sad card inserted in to the printer the full image is displayed on the lcd screen, however when it is printed out on 6x4 paper it has been cropped which sometimes makes the photo look hopeless. Do I need to alter any settings so that what I see on the lcd is what I will get on a 6x4.
    Many thanks in advance

    Problem solved, after a little bit of searching it appears my photos have been shot in 1:1 ratio. So my printer ( also apparently online photo services) will automatically crop it to a 3:2 ratio ( 6:4 ) standard print. Resulting in either top and bottom cropping or left and right hand side cropping depending on orientation. I have found an app where I can crop and resize quite easily myself. I have also now set my camera to shoot pictures in 3:2 ratio from now on.
