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".
