Please help me print my images in the correct size on my Mac. I bought a sheet of 1" circle digital images and downloaded them onto my Mac. I opened them in Preview and want to print them but they print out huge instead of just 1". I can't figure out why! I selected "scaling 100%" in my printer options and that didn't fix the problem. Also when I select View...Actual Size in Preview they look really large.

Crafts are supposed to be relaxing, right? But I'm tearing my hair out over this. I then figured it might be a problem with the file so I downloaded a free file of 1" circle digital images from another site to test it. The same thing happened.
I'm trying to make bottle cap jewelry and these images are meant for that so I know they're supposed to print in the correct size. I just can't figure out how to do it.
I don't have Photoshop or anything like that - just the free software that came with my 4 year old Macbook. Please help me if you can! I am a complete beginner at this stuff and my crafting career will soon be over before it has even begun if I can't resolve this soon. Thank you!
