JSI Tip 3715. How can I make MSPAINT print properly sized images?

When you print a document created with MSPAINT, the image is not adjusted for video resolution. This may cause MSPAINT printed images to be very large or very small.

The best way to print a MSPAINT image is to paste the image into a Wordpad document, or similar document, and print that document.

NOTE: You can resize the image in Wordpad. The image is actually converted to a Windows Meta File (WMF).
