How to print actual size

I have an image that is 16cm by 10cm.

How do I print this in paint.net to be exactly 16cm by 10cm? I've reset the image size to these dimensions and unselected 'Fit Picture to Frame' but it is still printing much larger than that. My paper size is A4. If this isn't possible in Paint.net, is there any other software that will allow me to do this? So frustrating as trying to get this correct has wasted ink, which isn't cheap.

The popular quick-and-easy option is to paste the image into Microsoft Word, and then print from there.



Another good option is to use IrfanView, which has lots of printing customization:
