Yep, if it looks right in print preview it'll look right on paper (in
theory ;-) ). I have exactly the same problem with my HP DeskJet 690C.
I contacted HP and they said it couldn't be done because of the
printer's margins. Which is complete rubbish, all they would have to do
is give an option to set the small margin to match the larger one in the
driver settings. I told them this and they came back with more rubbish
like 'it would mean redesigning an old printer'. Obviously, if it's
still a problem with the 880C they haven't been thinking properly about
Anyway, enough ranting. I can't think of a way around this in PhotoShop.
In Paint Shop Pro 6 you can use the 'Print Multiple Images' function.
This gives complete control over where the image appears on the paper. I
also seem to remember that PhotoImpact does a good job of centering no
matter what the printer's margins are.
Try upgrading your printer drivers from http://www.hp.com/ . It won't
solve the margin issue, but might make it possible to get a centered
image by manually rescaling it.
