    I have multiposting, but couldn't get an answer on the previous NG I asked
    this question, so here goes:

    AFAICT Photoshop's default printing scheme is to print images centered on
    the media. For, say, 8x10 images on 8.5x11 paper, this required cutting 4
    margins off to get the print. I know that I can set the margins on an
    image-by-image basis by using Print-With-Preview, but I can't find anywhere
    to make a permanent change in CS2.

    In most if not all cases, Photoshop and other aps have to obey the rule
    (setting) of the printer, and the printer should give you all the options to
    set to whatever you want.

    Or you can set printer to print border-to-border, envelope, 4x6" etc..
    that Photoshop and other aps can't break the printer setting. So instead of
    trying to force Photoshop to do what it isn't capable of, you may want to
    look at what you can do with your printer instead. And don't forget that
    the setting will effect all other aps.

    so far how to make that the default I think under printers and faxes
    look at MARGINS
    but since I don't do all prints this way I don't do that or try it

    I use print with preview
    then untick box center image
    then in the distance boxes
    if you have a bleed printer set the numbers to both margins .0125

    I have to set it each time though for each image
    it saves cutting two sides
    and gives you good paper for small prints or test strips
    often I do 8x12 on 11x17 paper and need to trim for bleed
