Printing 4" x 6" Borderless Photo Prints on Epson WF-3520 using iPhoto

When I want 4" x 6" prints, I put them on a USB drive and bring them to CVS for printing on a Kodak Kiosk.

My old printer at home no longer printed the color red. It was a sad state of affairs.

I just got an Epson WF-3520 printer in for review along with some glossy photo paper. So I decided to give it a try and see what it looked like.

First I had to figure out how to give the printer a print command for a 4" x 6" photo print. Since I've got a Mac, I opened up iPhoto, selected a photo, and clicked on the PRINT menu option.

Look what popped up. A dialog box which allowed be to select my print size, paper quality, and if I wanted a borderless print or not.

Adding Paper
At first I tried to put the paper in the back of the printer, but the LCD screen told me not to. So I opened up the manual and saw that I had to add the photo paper to the regular paper tray.

I pressed PRINT, and after some processing on the printer side, out came a nice 4" x 6" Borderless snapshot. Just like in the old days.
