    I have a 8x10 picture on my computer that i'm trying to print, but anytime I do there are always these horrible white borders about a half an inch around the entire photograph. How can I print a full size 8x10 on my printer without these damn white borders? I've tried adjusting every setting and nothing seems to work.

    Thanks

    What kind of printer? Print it on a full sheet and then cut it down?

    Uhh, do you have a borderless printer? It's only recently that I'd say most "photo" printers can print bordlerless.

    Werd. This is true. I believe HP has had a couple out for over a year now though.

    You have few options.

    1) HP sells 8x10 paper that is perforated that allows you to tear of the borders, the full outer dimensions are 8.5x11... I know HP makes it but a few other companies do. I have never been too impressed with the quality in general of the paper, but oh well, it will allow you to do a full 8x10.

    2) You can do like other suggested and print it on an 8.5x11 and cut it down with a paper cutter.

    3) My favorite, but you wont like. When traditionally printing a professional photo it isn’t borderles, on an 8x10 piece of paper you would print something around a 5x7 or 4x6 on there, if it isn’t going to be matted, which a lot of my photography is not. But I had a deal for a while printing 4x6 on a 11x14 to get a large border which is really a nice look.
