I have a 3:2 aspect ratio image that I want to prnt on 8 x 10 paper. In iPhoto, when I use File>Print, the resulting landscape print maximizes the use of the paper area, leaving a small equal border of white all around, but loses the true width of the image while expanding the height in order to fill the paper height.

 

What I want is a print that shows the whole 3:2 image, which would leave a wider border along the top and bottom.  I can do this in Aperture, but can't see what to do in iPhoto to get the same print.

I understand this, but when I got into specifying a custom size, I didn't know, offhand, what the dimensions would be, of a 3:2 inage tha would fit an 8x10 paper and leave the correct minimum margin for my Epson printer.

 

That's why the next answer is so much easier for me, the one from LarryHN.
