    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.

    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
