Printing TIF files

Printing TIF files

Printing TIF files

I installed GIMP on my XP system and now when I double click on a tif file it is loaded in GIMP. When I try to print, the image is compressed vertically to half size. Any thoughts on how to fix this. Alternatively, how to I get back to using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.


RE: Printing TIF files

Right-click a TIF file in the file explorer, click "Open with", select the program you want to use for opening TIF files, tick the "always use this program" box, then click OK. That will open the file using the selected program, anmd will always use that program for that file type from then on.

RE: Printing TIF files

Thanks TonyGroves. I figured out how to set it back right after I posted. No thoughts on the Gimp printing problem?
