I've been using this and I think it sucks. Mostly because the images
are considered to be at a maximum scale when you goto the plugin,
which makes it hard to scale up or down to crop it nicely. But I have
to say, I'm still very happy it is there, since it's let me print some
nice pictures on my Epson printer.
It's just not as good as I think it should be. All they would really
need to do is let the size scale start at 100% and allow you to move
it up/down as you like (within reason of course!) since the paper size
you select determines the area that will print.
Am I being clear here? Hopefully so. I guess I should look to see if
there's a better version of the tool out there.
