           Summary: scaling images is broken
           Product: kdelibs
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: print-dialog
        AssignedTo: kde-print-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: anders at alweb.dk

Version:           unknown (using 4.4.1 (KDE 4.4.1), Chakra)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.32-ARCH

After several attempts of printing an image from digikam, i had to give up. It
is simply not possible with KDE.

I use the standard print dialog
I print on a 10x15cm photo paper, printer set to full bleed 600 dpi color. The
printer is a HP dj5550 and drivers are hpijs

In the print dialog, i tried to scale the image to a size fitting the paper
(10x10.26cm), but then the image is cut on the sides, while vertically pressed.
Same result printing to pdf with a custom page size of 10x15cm.

Then I tried printing to a 10x15cm pdf, using the default setting of adjusting
the image to the paper. This gave a nice pdf.

Then I tried printing to the printer with same printer settings, but using the
default adjustment. This resulted in cups sending something else than a 10x15
adjusted image to the printer.

Conclusion: I can not print a photo to a 10x15cm photo paper, full bleed, with

This was possible, and easy, with KDE 3 series. So this is a regression.
