Print Settings for the Netscape Browser

For the best print results, use high quality pictures, and select the Normal Upload setting when uploading pictures from your computer to the AOL Pictures service.

Your pictures will be trimmed to fit the page unless you delete headers and footers and minimize the print margins in your browser settings.

When printing with the Netscape browser, your print results may look different from those that appear on your computer screen. Due to possible conflicts with different printers and print drivers, the printed picture may get cropped or appear inappropriately resized.

Your pictures will be trimmed to fit the page unless you delete headers and footers and minimize the print margins in your browser settings.
