I bought the CP900 and tried to print a 4x4 photo (instagram) from my iphone and the printer just stretched it to a 4x6. Do you have to buy the special paper in order to do that? And where can you get the paper (if you have a model number or title that would be great)? I can't find it!

Thanks.

I don't have that model, but on mine the print setting has to be set to "bordered" to print a 4x4.

When you print do you get an box that shows you what the print will look like? I have an HP but I can print a 4X4 by unclicking the "fit to page" box. Do you have that as an option when you print your pics?

I wonder if you have to use a photo editing program to add side borders to the 4 x 4 to make it a 4 x 6. It seems like if you set it to bordered it would still stretch it but add a border to the stretched image.

I have the CP800 and to print instagrams I have to make sure the borders are turned "on".
