    Windows Photo Gallery - printing different size pics

    Can someone help me print a picture that is NOT offered as a choice in the Photo Gallery -- i.e., 1.75" x 1.75" out of the photo gallery?

    There must be a way, but I can't figure it out.

    Thanks much.

    I don't think you can with WPG...
    but you can with the free IrfanView.

    ====================================
    The following tutorial is for a 2"x2" passport
    photo but you can use your measurement and
    follow the same steps.

    Creating a Passport Photo:

    You need to crop your image to 2x2"
    and print it exactly that size....

    The free program, FastStone Image
    Viewer can do what you request.

    FastStone Image Viewer
    http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

    First you will have to download and
    install the program.

    Now, open the program and select
    the picture you wish to create the
    passport photo with. The selected
    image will show in the bottom left of
    your screen.

    Now go to...Edit / Crop Board.

    Click the "Define Paper Ratios" button.
    (it's just to the right of the Paper Ratio
    drop window)

    Click the "Add" button and enter...2 x 2"
    click...OK...

    Open the "Paper Ratio" drop window
    and select 2 x 2".

    Left click / drag a box around the exact
    portion of the image you wish to include
    in your finished passport photo. You can
    resize by dragging the corner handles
    and reposition by dragging the 4-way
    arrow. To finish...click the "Crop" button.

    Now...go to...File / Print...

    Open the "Size" drop window and choose
    "Normal".

    Click "Print".
