Are you trying to print it smaller?

You've adjusted the scaling to like 50% normal size?

Have you tried adjusting the image size itself? In properties, change the units to Inches, then reduce the size to whatever you want... just keep in mind this will actually change the image itself, so you might not want to save changes.

Paint is not exactly a terribly powerful program - it doesn't let you easily change the DPI and all that.

If you have paint.net it should be able to do this for you. I wouldn't trust MS Paint for anything beyond the basics.

Don't print from MSPaint. Save the image, open it in Widows Image Viewer and print from there.

This should work (Under Print/Page Setup, change scaling form "Fit to" to "Adjust to" and select a smaller percentage). Not sure why it isn't working for you.
