Elements 7 problem or printing problem?

One of my students brought some photos tonight that he'd attempted to print at home. Two were okay, he said that he just pulled them up, tweaked them a little printed.
The third looked extremely cropped on letter size paper it looked to be about a 4 x 6. He said that he had taken the same actions with it except that he had 'used layers' in tweaking it. Said he'd saved it the same way as the others and when we looked at the printer setup and the page setup (on the school computer) he claimed that his was setup the same way at the house.
Is this a formatting problem? printing problem? or what?

When he clicks on print he should get a preview of the image as it will appear on the paper.
Things to check:
"Crop to fit" on the print screen (File>Print or CTRL P) is not checked
On the same screen check the paper is the same orientation as the image.
Then under Image>Image size check the number of pixels per inch (PPI) of the images that worked and the one that didn't. Adjust the resolution of the image that didn't work to match those that did. (look at this link to learn more)

I hope that helps
