Click on the File menu, click Print. A dialog appears with options for printing an image. To the right you see two previews of the image: one that shows how it would look printed in Portrait orientation, the other shows it in Landscape. To the left, you have several option buttons to choose how the image will appear on the page. The first two are Best Fit and Stretch to Page. Best Fit places the image on the page as large as it can, without altering the dimensions. Stretch to Page will fill the print area, even if it has to re-size one dimension. Click one button, to select that option. Below those two options is another option button to Scale the image to fit it on the page. If you click this option, the two boxes to its right become active. Type in a value to change that dimension of the image; 1.00 is its normal size. Change it to 2.00 to make the image twice as large in that dimension. After typing your changes, click the Refresh button to update the preview images. Below the Scale option is a check box, Center on Page; click this to have the image printed in the center of the paper. The previews show how this looks. Uncheck it to move the image back to edges of the print area. After selecting all options, click the Print button at the bottom of the dialog box. This will bring up the Windows print dialog, from which you complete the task as usual. Remember to tell Windows whether you want the image printed in Portrait of Landscape orientation. If you change your mind about printing, you can exit the IrfanView print dialog by clicking Cancel. You can also use this to exit when the print job is finished. Another way to exit is to click the X in the upper right corner.
