Photo getting cut off when printing

I am trying to print a 6x4 photo with my HP Photosmart B8550.  Everytime I go to print it, it cuts off part of the picture.  I created the picture in Photoshop at 6x4 and saved it as a jpg.  In the preview it shows up fine but it is NOT right when it prints.  Please advise.

The edges of your image will be cut off by a printer that can’t print all the way to the edges of the paper. In order to prevent this, go to the Image Size menu again and decrease the height by 1 inch (thus also reducing the width). When printed, the image will be centered on the paper. You can also choose “Scale to Fit Media” In Page Setup.

You can also choose 4x6 Borderless photo paper.

Borderless print is what i have selected and that is where it gets cut off.

 

When I actually select bordered print...it prints the picture correctly but with a border.

The printer does not print the entire picture.  It cuts it off at various points during printing.
