Program suggestion...

Hey, umm i need help. i have editted and cleaned about 1600 photos and i wanna print about 9 of those pictures per a page. However, i wanna save each page as an image. Is there a program which can put about 9 pictures a page and let it print it automatically. i know in windows printing u can select the pictures u want and u set a layout so it will place those pictures onto 1 page but that seems like it will take too long and alot of effort ( by the way saving it isnt a big issue just that itd help alot)

thanks ur suggestion and help will be of greatly appreciated =D

Welcome to Retouch Pro! If you have any version of Photoshop, just go File>Automate>Picture Package. A dialog box will come up and you direct PS to a folder containing your photos. You define how many photos you want on what size page (for example 8x10). You tell it the quality and whether or not you want image names etc. Then PS will sequence through your folder and do its thing. If you have 1600 photos and you want 10 photos per page, the PS will build you 160 pages or asmany as it takes to process the number of photos in your folder. These pages can be saves as standard jpgs and later printed.
Regards, Murray

Re: Program suggestion...

HI kickclickin...
here's another method (fast and easy) but it wouldn't give u much control that photsohop can with the batch processing...

put all photos in one folder, then open the first one with windows picture and fax viewer. Click print (on the bottom there is a icon for printing), as a printer select paper port (if u don't have it installed i would suggest to google it out, cause i can't remember where did i got the drivers from), then select all photos, on the next step u may choose what format to print the photos to A4(9 photos on a page is there, 6x9 wallet prints) and then just click print.
after it finises a paper port application will open with the file created, after that you may choose to save it in different format( originally it's in pdf)...

Regards...

It sounds like Contact Sheet II might be what you're looking for (right next to Picture Package under automation). Xbytor has an improved version that gives you even more control.

That would be PDF Presentation, under the same menu. Make your contact sheets, then make them into a presentation (you can just leave them open in Photoshop and select "use open images". Don't forget to select "high quality print" as an option in the 2nd dialog (there will be 2 dialogs).
