THis works fine for me - either printing two different 5 x 7 photos (both landscape) on a letter sheet or two of the same 5 x 7 photo (again a landscape photo) on one page
So somehow you are missing something although your workflow sound perfect (and I learned that you can right click and modify the photo which is new to me)
If you do not see what is going on try deleting the iPhoto preferences (user ==> library ==> preferences ==> com.apple.iphoto.plist) - you will have to reset any preferences you have modified
Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Make sure you have 5x7 selected in the Print Size and Letter selected in the Page size. I just ran thru the steps and mistakenly selected 5x7 in the Paper size instead of Letter and got what you did. It's an easy mistake to make. I went back and made sure I had letter and 5x7 selected in the first window and that made the difference.
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
