I've been playing around with my margins and I'm close to centering it but I've run through a pack of photo paper trying to get it right. I've attached pics of my settings, test and shots. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Try top = 0, left = 0, right = 10, bottom = 15 and then do another test
    print.

    Change it to top =0, left =0, right=9, bottom = 15 and then try it with a
    photo layout by starting a session.

    Try changing top to 5 to increase the main at the top

    Thank you. Do you feel the right side has too much space? or is it not noticeable

    If you think the right edge had to much space, you can decrease it by 1 or 2

    We will need to see the actual layout that you created.
    In the layout editor - Export (save) the layout to your desktop
    and ZIP it and attach the Zip file here and we can
    then take close look at where the photo boxes have been placed.

    Then I can show you what it will look like
    if I make any layout changes/adjustments

    OK... I created a GRID image to be used
    for a TEST background that has 10X10px boxes
    that may help us get your margins set correctly.

    SEE SAMPLE ATTACHED

    I renamed the SBL file and attached it as a ZIP file
    for you to do another TEST session and we can
    see better what is not set correctly.

    Try printing using the layout that Joe sent you. The grid in the background
    can be used to equal out the margin on the sides

    Looks like you disabled the automatic centering and scaling settings?

    I have the “ center on layout” checked. Is that what you’re talking about.

    Can you send a screenshot of your printing settings in Sparkbooth?

    Thanks. Those settings look correct. Try setting top =0, left =0, right=8,
    bottom = 15, and then print Joe's layout.

    By the way, you do not need to zip the photos before sending them. It is
    easier for us to view if they are not zipped.

    Ok, I think there must be some bleed margin that is not being accounted
    for. Try

    top =2, left =2, right=2, bottom = 12

    The bottom edge is covered by the keyboard. Can you send a different photo
    so I can see the bottom edge?
