Printing scanned document is slightly smaller?

Recommended Posts

I scan an image at 150dpi, then print it with paint.net with "Fit picture to frame" on so its as large as it can go. but the printed version is about 2% smaller then the original.  Why?  I'm trying to make a color photocopy more or less.  its not exact. it should be.   using the latest paint.net 4.0.13 on Windows 10 with a HP Deskjet 1010 printer. 


It does print the proper size in Photoshop CS6.

I would guess that it's something with the printing margins, which I don't think you can change from paint.net's print dialogue. My workaround is to make a MS Word document with margins set to zero and drag the image into it. When you press print, a box will come up that says



Your margins are pretty small. Some of your content may be cut off when you print. Do you still want to print?


Press yes.
