Can you plse tell me what to do to print two photos on one and the same sheet?

I know how to transfer two photos from MY PICTURES folder, sitting side-by-side on my monitor but when I go to print I only get one image on the sheet not the two together.

Grateful for helping an oldage pensioner still baffled by computer navigation.

Re: Two-in-one

Hello Joe and welcome to Retouch Pro.
You did not mention what image editing program you are using.
In general, one way would be to open one image and change the canvas size to accommodate both images. Then open the 2nd image and copy and paste into the first image and position it. So for example if you wanted to place two 5 x 7 together and print on a 8 x 10 sheet of photo paper. Open one 5 x7 and (if you have PS or PS Elements) go Image>Canvas size and change the canvas size to 10 x 7. Paste in the 2nd photo and position it below the 1st.
Regards, Murray

Re: Two-in-one

Bob Coats has a quicktime movie here:

it may take a while to load.. be patient

Basically ... Drag and drop using the Move tool (top of the tool menu on right.. looks like a triangle with a 4 pointed arrow)... resize with Edit>free transform tool by using the corner handles whilst holding down the shift key

this thread may help also:

Re: Two-in-one

Good ideas from the others.
Here is another simple idea:

Windows' Picture and Fax Viewer supports printing more than one image on a page. It is quite flexible.
- Within Windows' explorer, you can normally double click a supported image type, i.e. jpg
- Once Windows P&F Viewer opens the image, click the print icon at the bottom of the page.
- The next dialog asks you to check each image you want to print. After selecting them, click next.
- The next dialog seems like it's done, as it asks for the printer. But, it's not. Click next again.
- Here is the good dialog... this one asks for how you want the images printed. You can select from many popular layouts. As you click each one, it gives you a preview on the right.
- Be sure you're satisfied at that point, because when you click next, it will print right then.
Here is a screenshot of the layout dialog box...

Re: Two-in-one

LOL, Thanks TommyO for bringing the OPs request into focus!.... My one track mind was stuck in Photoshop trying to make a photo montage/collage/composite and I totally skipped over the 'Print' and using the monitor to preview his prints!

Guess I am just getting OLD!!

Joe sorry 'bout my bad manners... Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you make a lot of new friends here...!
