Where do I choose my paper type when printing from iPhoto? I've ruined glossy paper and now photo-quality ink jet paper - where do I tell iPhoto what I'm using?
(to KB - it would have helped me if you'd explained I should go back to 'Anything Mac' to find the plain and obvious button for posting a new thread - ...)

In the print dialogue box, there is a pop-up button with many options (which vary depending on the printer driver you are using).
In the latest iPhoto, this is not obvious at first: there's no obvious spot where you can tell it what kind of paper you're using. Once you've established paper size and other details, you get a "preview" of the result and another option to "cancel" or "print."
When you hit this "print" button, you get an abbreviated confirm window that can be expanded by clicking on the blue down arrow. There you will have options including "Print Settings" which is where you can (finally!) tell it what kind of paper you're using:

Thank you SOOOO much! How am I supposed to know this...? Now at least I'll keep my eye out for those anonymous blue arrows that are apparently quite meaningful..
Such a help - thanks.
