Why do excel pages not turn out as I expect?

Evening all.
I am trying to put an Excel document together that has pictures and numbers on it. So far so good!
I have 5 pages, and I have dragged the page breaks around so that the breaks fall in the right places.
But this is my question - in page break view the size of the pictures on a page suggest that the images, when the spreadsheet is printed will fill the page, but when I actually print it out to check what it will look like, the pictures are too small and loads of space is wasted.
When I look in "page layout", that fairly acccurately reflects how the pictures print out, but I want the pictures to be bigger so that they make better use of the space on each page. On "page layout" there is amassive space apparently to put a footer - which I don't want.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong?

Only because I need to add some text, prices etc so I have always used excel for that. You're probably right. I will experiment with some other method. Thanks.

Possibly PC resolution or something bizarre?

Or how your printer is set up?

Might be worth a read. I know it's generic advice but may be something of use. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2678993
