When on Windows, I used the default Windows Photo Viewer a lot because it is so easy to print full page images (cropped or not cropped), to any paper size.

Is there a Linux app that can do this as efficiently?

  1. Open the image
  2. Select paper size
  3. Fit to page/Full page option
  4. (bonus: crop to fit or not option)

This is what happens if I try to print 11x17 in GIMP, even if I've set the image size to 11x17 (which is an extra step I don't have to do using Windows Image Viewer). It STILL doesn't' print 11x17!

Here' the print preview:

  • If you mean ubuntu, I guess gimp is suited for your needs. If other linux distros, may refer to Unix & Linux for related answers. – Wafie Ali Nov 4 '16 at 7:03
  • I can't figure out how to do this easily with GIMP. – 43Tesseracts Nov 4 '16 at 7:13
  • @WafieAli GIMP is completely cross-platform - it can be used in any Linux distro as well as other systems. But I wouldn't recommend it for this specification – Zanna Nov 4 '16 at 7:58
  • Have a look here Alternative image viewers ? – Zanna Nov 4 '16 at 7:58
  • @Zanna thanks for share with me. I'm still new to Linux distro (Ubuntu). Keen to learn more from these great communities. – Wafie Ali Nov 4 '16 at 8:15

in the Ubuntu repositories you will find a program called Photoprint
