Adobe photoshop 7.0- printing more than 1 picture to a page?
Hello,

Folks here have been so helpfull and I am grateful for all the advice I have received. Don't know if anyone has ever used photshop out there, but I can't figure out how to print more than 1 picture at a time to 1 page, and the manual doesn't seem to help me much either, so I am posting this question here in case someone might be able to help me. Your response is appreciated.

Howdy

open the images you want to print and make whatever adjustments you would like including sizing, color adjust, etc.

then open a new blank canvas that is the size of the paper to be used then using the mover tool drag the images to the blank canvas

...and your question is?

how to print multiple pictures on 1 page?

if so, what i do is

let's say you wanted to print 2 4x5 pictures on one page

resize, edit etc each of the pictures (separately of course) to a 4x5 size

open each picture
in picture 1, go to:
image
canvas size
change width to 8.25 (so you have some cutting room)
click on the left arrow (to add the extra space to the right of the existing picture - goofy, but that's how PS does it)
click OK

you now have a 8.25 width
- the orig picture, plus white space on the right

with picture 1 still open
go to picture 2
r-click, select all
copy
(or choose 'select', then 'all', then edit, copy)

return to picture 1 (full window is best for this)
paste
picture 2 will paste on top of picture 1
r-click, free transform - pictue is 'framed' by transform lines
drag picture 2 over to the right
align it properly, leave a little cutting room in between for after printing
press enter
if it looks ok
layer
flatten image

you now have 2 pictures side by side
***save as*** someother name so you don't overwrite the original picture 1
(best to work with copies just in case, save the originals
i usually save as .tiff so resaving doesn't degrade quality like happens with .jpeg)

go to
file
print with preview
now you can uncheck "center image"
scale should be 100%
and reduce the top margin to 0

ready to print!

your printer may give a "too big, some cropping may occur" error message
i've always ignored these with no ill effects

experiment a bit, but this works for me
can even fill a whole sheet with different pictures to minimize wasted photo paper

hint: to test, use plain paper and set printer to b&w to give an idea how it'll look

the above assumes 8.5 x 11 photo paper
