I always edit my photos to print at 300dpi and up until my recent paid purchase of iPhoto on my Mac Book the images no longer fit on my screen and I can not adjust any preferences to see the whole image. I did not have this problem with iPhoto 8 which was already on my computer. How do I get my image to fit in the window?

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    You need to crop the image to the size ratio of the paper you're printing on.  If you want a 4 x 6 print crop the image to 4 x 6 before entering the print process.  Select 4x6 as the paper size and Borderless as the Print size.

    As a designer I understand how to size images and almost all my images have been adjusted and set up for print. (300 DPI at size)  Recently I purchased iPhoto11 to upgrade my iPhoto8 and use photostream.  I can no longer properly view edited photos in the iPhoto window. The viewed image is so large It only shows me about 25% of the image. I go and use the zoom slide and the image immediately springs back to "oversize". I did not have this probkem in iphoto8.

    Try this:  launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new, test library.  Import some photos and check to see if the same problem persists. If it does log into another user account on your Mac and try iPhoto there.  This will help narrow down where the problem lies, the library, the user account, the application or the system. 


    What Mac model do you have?
