Ponytail: as well as telling the application what size to print, you may need to 'tell' your printer what kind of paper is loaded. If you're telling your app to print one size, but your printer thinks it's got a different size in, it would likely give you an error message such as you describe.

Are you loading the paper portrait or landscape?

Picasa Printing on smaller paper

To print your photos on specific-sized paper in Picasa, make sure your printer is set to use to the correct sized paper.

In Picasa, click the Printer Setup button on the printing preview page.

Depending on your printer drivers, a version of the printer setup menu will appear. Modify the paper size to the width and height of your printer paper and save your changes.

Once you have correctly configured your printer, select the Full Page button on the printing preview page in Picasa.

To have your image take up the entirety of the selected paper size, you may need to click the Crop to Fit button in the Print Layout section. This crops the photo to the selected print dimensions.
