Hi guys,

Last night my friend came back from her holiday only for her dog to pass away a few hours later.
I felt really bad for her and i've got a photo of her dog she sent me ages ago. I was gonna print off the picture onto a custom made card but i've got a problem.
The cards I have come with the folding line, however to print they need to be flat (A4 size) Thats no problem. The problem I have is that when I print the photo is printed incorrectly.
Rather than printing on half the A4 sheet it prints over the fold and 90 degrees from the angle I want it to print at.
As I only wanted half the sheet printed I selected to print as an A5 and the setting was 'portrait'
I dont quite understand how i've gone wrong. Does anyone have any printing tips?

To give you an idea of how I want it printed, this is how I want it to print...

Is this the 'friend' that you like???

If so, that's awfully nice of you considering the way she's been treating you.

Yeah.
I'm taking abit of a backseat with her really. I'm not looking for a relationship with her for now because she seems to get annoyed with me when i'm being nice. Maybe things will change in time or maybe they wont.

As for it being a nice gesture, yeah it is and I know shes treated me unfairly at times but its never nice when a pet (or any family member) dies and we all need support during that time. :)

Thanks.
Yes, she does sometimes get annoyed when I do nice things, but I mean in general, like if shes busy i'll say 'i'll speak to you later if you're busy' and then she gets annoyed. I dont think she realises that im showing common courtesy sometimes but I dont really know as i've tried to explain.
I dont feel as close to her as I used to, but its never nice when anyone is faced with a death so I just thought i'd show my support.
