Many thanks for your continued help
This could be down to a memory problem with your printer, because when you process a file into printer language, a 1mb file could require almost 4mb to process before printing. Try reducing the size of the file and try again.
The way I setup the example above would print as normal, i.e. portrait mode, and when printed you would fold the page in half, which would make the picture appear correctly on the card.
Try downloading this program FinePrint from:
It's free for testing print layout and we use to use it on the Xerox 2060 colour laser printer, a commerical printer that cost around £250,000.
