iPhoto and Printing 4x6's

I have been having a problem printing borderless 4x6 prints out of iphoto for awhile now. Each time i would print, i would choose the borderless 4x6 driver for the epson and go from there. Each time, the print would come magnified as if it were trying to print it on an 8x10 sheet of paper. Ugh!

I couldn't figure it out. It never occured to me that i had to go to 'page setup' and choose the driver there, THEN go to the print dialogue box and choose the driver there as well. But that isn't it. If you were to do just that you would get 4x6 prints with 1/8" borders on two sides. Before you even send the print command, you have to go into edit mode and constrain your image to 4x6 using the crop tool.

Seeing that i (or any other person) would want to print more than one photo in this way, it would make sense that the 'constrain to 4x6, etc ..." command would be available in the 'batch' option. Alas, it is not. Assuming that this is nothing more than an apple script, does anyone know enough of apple script to add this functionality?
