Windows Photo Gallery (Vista) distorts my incoming faxes when prin

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Printing / Faxing / Scanning' started by Don't taze me bro., Nov 3, 2007.

  1. I receive faxes to my e-mail as .tiff files.
    When printing these faxes, WPG cuts of the bottom of the image and stretches
    the rest of the image to fill a landscape page.
    I've adjusted the page size, layout, resolution, etc. but still have this
    issue.
    Images look OK in the main view, but when I click on print, the distortion
    begins.
    When I select or deselect the 'Fit picture to frame' checkbox, the image
    will momentarily flip to an undistorted view but then it flips right back to
    the distorted view. Also, when I forward one of these fax to someone who has
    XP and uses the XP default fax viewer, they have no such issue.

    I'm having the exact same problem (on three separate PCs). I'd like to know
    if anyone has a resolution.

    I had the same problem. Try changing the default program for TIF files
    to Microsoft Office Document Imaging...

    Right click the file, choose "Open With", "Choose Default Program",
    "Browse", and select:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\MODI\12.0\MSPVIEW.EXE

    Could be 11.0 instead of 12.0 if you have Office 2003 installed.

    I have had this problem also and it is driving me nuts.... When I
    tried to do the described fix above I did not get the "Open With" option
    when I did the right click - whjat else can I try.
