With Picasa if you want to print a photo you select it and click PRINT.  I find it incredible but Google Photos appears to have no PRINT function such that one must go to an outside service or print through one’s browser. The latter in my case consistently produces unevenly bordered photos in spite of having selected borderless. Am I correct that there is no PRINT function in Google Photos?

You are correct – there is no print functionality in Google Photos. 

If you still have Picasa – you can download the photo from Googl Photos (open it, then 3-dot menu and Download) – just put it in a folder watched by Picasa. It will show up in Picasa and you can print from there.

Otherwise, I recommend a service like – with snapfish, if you give it permission, you can access your Google photos and order prints. They will be printed on high quality paper, or you can even order them framed, on cups, blankets or other gifts.
