    Hi, I setup my printer (Canon Pixma TS6351a) to use the rear paper tray for photos, inserted photopaper and tried printing from macOS directly. When I chose 10x15cm, it automatically prints on the designated photopaper.
    However, I can’t get Phoyo to use the rear paper tray.
    Under ‘Paper’ I selected 100x150mm (also tried the 152 -2 102 -2 from the list) and under ‘Printing’ I chose the printer. But there is no option to select a papertray.

    Everytime Phoyo prints a photo, it does it on A4 standard paper. What can I do?
    Thx!

    Hello,
    Use the “file transfer / file processing command” option to print.
    Install and try to print with irfanview (https://www.irfanview.com/64bit.htm).
    If it works then use the following command line:
    “C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view64.exe” /print
    There are other options explained here: https://www.etcwiki.org/wiki/IrfanView_Command_Line_Options
    Regards

    For others with the same problem: I managed it with the Automater using Shell Script.
    The steps in Automator are:
    – Select the right Folder for a Folderaction
    – ‘Set value of variable
    – run Shell Script bin/sh: lpr -P [precise printer name] -o PageSize=4×6.Borderless -o InputSlot=Rear “$1”
    – ‘Get value of variable’

    In Phoyo use ‘File Transfer’ to the folder, rather than printing. The Automator does the rest.
    Took me many hours to get it done properly.

    Seems to be Windows only. Is there a solution for mac? I won’t buy the full version without having it fixed…
    Thanks!

    Mac and Unix systems have the same commands.
    See this post.
