    How do I view a Print Preview of a document of picture I'm printing?
    It's a silly question, but I honestly don't know and I actually searched the internet for an answer. I can only choose to "Print" a document of picture, and I can't see a "Print Preview" option.

    How about some details? What program are you printing from that you're trying to view a print preview?

    Print preview for
    1. A picture, such as a PNG or JPG (If I just select "Print" or use Command + P, the picture is blown up to the full paper size.)
    2. A TextEdit document

    Also, I have the most recent MBP with OS Mountain Lion. (I don't know if those details matter, but I'll include them anyways.)

    If you open the PNG or JPG with your Preview.app and then select "Print" from the menu, that will give you a print preview before sending it to the printer. Is that what you're referring to?

    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    the picture is blown up to the full paper size
    If you're using Preview, it seems to default to fill the page when printing an image. There should be the option to scale the image in the Print Dialogue box.

    Also, you can click on the PDF button in the lower right corner and have an option of opening the PDF in Preview, where you can see exactly what the page will look like and be able to view it at any size you want to.
