    Hi everyone,

    This may be a dumb question, or not the right place for it, but I'll ask anyway!

    Now that I'm taking more photos since I got the 1020, I've been printing a few of them. However, when I print (to 4x6 lately), the picture does not take up the whole area on the picture paper. I'm doing borderless printing, but there is still white area. Is this due to the 16x9 aspect when taking the pictures?

    I can force the program to fill the entire paper, but then of course you lose a little bit of the picture. It hasn't been egregious yet, but I was wondering what the fix is? Perhaps I'm just missing something basic...

    This article should help. Yes, the differences are due to the fact that aspect ratios of computer monitors do not match those of printed photos.

    4x6 is a 2x3 ratio. The images we take are 4x3 or 16x9, which will cause borders. In short, Laura gave you a great article to read about it. :D
