I found your descriptions very helpful OldBoy. I am afraid it still did not print out properly, although I did check in print preview and it looked a bit odd. This time the whole image did print out but far too small.
I think somewhere along the line some of my measurement have not been correct?? The measurements I was working to were 82.5mmx57.5mm. To recap the batch of cards I bought were sold as A6 size which are technicallly 148x105mm. In inches 8 1/4 x 5 3/4" or 21 x15 cm. These cards have a fold line down the centre. I want my photo to be one half in this case portrait, so I halved my image measurements when I resized the image as per your instructions. As I said ok to the image sizes on resizing the image then became very small. but I thought maybe it would appear differently after moving. I do like way you suggest Window-Arrange-Vertically.
I realise you say Photoshop is for photos. I have a varied stock of many photos and thought it would be nice to make some cards as they can be expensive to buy.
So I think I am still in need of a little assistance please.
I still can't fathom out how I managed to do it right once before?
If you have produced a image 21x15 then that equals 210x150mm, but the full A6 card is 148x105, so your image won't fit. The image needs to be 74x105mm to fit half the A6 card, which is A7.
It should look somethink like this.
