I have created a 4x6 picture on Print shop, which i would like to save to CD and have printed in multiple copies (4x6 size) at my camera shop for Christmas cards.
the issue is that the photo itself is 4x6, but the project is still "regular paper size" and the 4x6 photo sits within that 8.5 x 11 page size. So when i back it up to CD, the entire 8.5 x 11 project is backed up, with my picture within it.
I need to only backup the 4x6 picture I've created
Is there any way to ONLY backup/save the actual 4x6 photo to my CD?

Yes, you select all and group the elements as one. Then export just this selected group as a JPG.
Warning: when the photolab prints your file, your edges will get cropped off. To protect against this, you must include a safety border around your picture, preferably a solid colour closely matching the edge of your picture. Now when your picture is printed, the safety border will get cut off rather than parts of your picture.
If you don't mind losing what's around the edge of your picture, you won't need a safety border.
Thank you, I did just that...but I am really new at this and i think i must've done something incorrectly..... my photo is still 8.5x11. i need it to be 4x6. Any suggestions or thoughts on why it exported at that size? On the Print Shop, i have my margins set at 4x6 and it will print out that way (on a full page of paper) but when I exported it, it came over 8.5x 11
...the print size was reduced but when it exported to My Pictures, it still prints out as an 8.5x11...
You didn't get a 4x6 print because you didn't set print dimensions to 4x6.
Check the JPG's properties. Only the pixel dimensions matter. The fact that your print was large does not mean this file wouldn't be printed 4x6 by the photo lab. Only pixel dimensions matter and they must be in the same proportion as 4x6. So 1200x1800 pixels is good. So is 1600x2400. If your proportions are wrong, the photolab will simply chop off the sides accordingly.
If I have a 3 megapixel camera and you have a 6 megapixel, we can both take a photo of the same thing and get a 4x6 print made. Theoretically, your photo should be sharper because your file has more pixel information.
