Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have Photoshop open
    .
    The icon for Photoshop is a blue square at the bottom. Once we have Photoshop open, we should also naturally have a document open to print it.

    Our screen will look something like the one in the tutorial when we have our document opened
    .
    The document is on its own tab at the left-hand side. If we have multiple documents open, then they will be listed in separate tabs along the top.

    We can click "Print..." or "Print One Copy" at the bottom of the menu

    At the top, we should change our printer if it already hasn't been found
    .
    In this video, "Epson L210 Series" is chosen. We click the "Printer" drop-down menu and select the printer. The image will be adjusted judging by the printer settings.

    We can edit our printing settings as well by tapping "Print Settings..."
    .
    This will bring up another new window as well. This is for more specific things as when we want a double-side printing, or when we want to print the document like a leaflet. These settings will vary depending on our printer. We can see that the document size is "Letter" in this video.

    Let's click "Document Size" and select "A4"
    .
    As the paper is in the printer. It is necessary to take a look at "Document Size" and see if something seems a bit strange in the print preview. We can see that the dimensions are strange for "A4" when "Letter" is selected. We click "Document Size" and make sure that everything in the area is OK.

    We don't need to go through all of the options if we are printing something very quickly
