Modern digital cameras and scanners are automatically set to take very high resolution photographs or image scans. These scans or images will often be the equivalent of A3 in size. This, of course, is not very useful if you want to print the images at 6"x4" or any other smaller size. Luckily, in Windows 7, when you begin to print a picture, you are able to resize the photograph during the printing process. This is good because it leaves the original high resolution image file in place, while simultaneously resizing your photograph for print.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," and then "Pictures."

  2. 2

    Browse through your picture library until you find the A3 photo to resize and print.

  3. 3

    Select the photograph, click "Print" on the task bar.

  4. 4

    Click the "Paper size" drop-down menu and select the size of paper you are printing on. Click the "Print resolution" drop-down and select the quality you want for your print.

  5. 5

    Click the "Print size" you want (to resize to) and then click "Print."
