    Hi Kevin,

    It's quite common - the trick is to see how much of the image is going to be clipped; if it's a lot then there's an issue with paper size somewhere, but you might find it's only a couple of thousanths of an inch (call it "rounding error") in which case it can safely be ignored.

    Just be aware than doing "full bleed" (as your about to) (ie no boarder) can leave a bit of ink on the platen of some printers - usually preferable to scale it back 1 or 2 percent and crop the media to the actual image size.

    That's the other option - often when I do that it scales the image back to 99.xx percent.

    Hey, that sounds like a rounding error
