Need to print photo from email, help!
« on: 01/10/2006 20:34:18 »
 Say one has a photograph recieved in an email. One downloads it and veiws said lovely photo,clicks on photo to reveal options! upon doing so selects , Print photo. then printer box appears and I select high quality photo paper, best print. then ok. printer box goes back to firt page and asks how many copies, I select 1, then press ok . Printer begins its job... 1 minute later out comes beautiful photo paper with the outline of a frame and a red x in the corner of frame... No picture...? Tried it a second time highlighting said picture, still no luck.. repeated several other things and new things and each time the same result, no change! Whats my problem, it prints out evrything else just fine! HELP!!

Try saving the photo to a file, then opening the file and printing it.

Tried that to.. but it says it doesn't recogognise the program! I tried sending it to my pictures and it went there but closed. when I tried to open this time it would not open picture at all and repeated doesnt recognize the program and offered to allow another program of my choosing to open said picture! could not find one that would work as I don't know how to pick although I tried several of my photo programs..

I would have thought that if it cannot recognise the program, it is probably because you did not supply the correct file name extension.  It is also possible that you have not yet set up your system to automatically open that file with

You can try and right click on the file that you saved the image to, and select the 'open with' option on the pop-up menu, and then select the 'choose program' option from the sub-menu.

If that does not work, you can send me the image, and I can have a look at it and see if there is anything peculiar about it.

I will try that later but I think I did that once but I will follow your instructions and try again! Perhaps I missed a step somewhere! Thanks George!

If all else fails open paint,  view the picture and press the print screen key at the top right of your computer  keyboard,then simply paste it into paint . you may have to to trim off the parts that you dont want as it will make a copy of your entire desktop but once trimed you can save it as a jpeg or bmp etc.

If printing from a web page have you asked it to print all frames? When you highlighted the picture did you ask it to print selected frame only?

A foolproof way to print out displayed pictures is to use a screen capture progam such as http://www.captureexpress.com/download.htm a trial version of which can be downloaded for free

I would expect any screen print of a photo to have a significant loss of quality over printing the photo directly.
