It would be much better to have one more option in print dialog to select page size there, and maybe customize margins there too.

Btw there is a bug I reported on gnome bugzila

It seems that this isn't eog specific bug, it seems like page margins rotate with page orientation, although they describe
actual printer limitations.

This might be better on the gtk-devel list, so I've cross-posted it there.

There do seem to be real problems printing to specific paper sizes. I don't think there is a satisfactory way of telling gthumb (my pet project) to print to a 4x6" photo paper (for example) with zero margins, which some printers are capable of doing. I'm not sure if it is a problem with the cups drivers, or gtk-print, or something else, but it just doesn't work...

I don't even see an option to select a printer in gthumb

On the other hand take a look at eye of gnome, it does have full support
for printing on any paper (you can even define custom page sizes without borders)

But it isn't easy to use like I told here.

Your application uses your own print dialog?
