If this makes any sense at all, can you give me any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
I don't know about Elements 1, but in Elements 2 you can go to File > Print Layouts > Picture Package and do what I think you're asking to do. You can specify one file, one folder of files, or individual files scattered all over your hd as the individual sources, and print them on one sheet (or many sheets) of paper.
Doug is right, you use Picture Package. You can make custom layouts by adjusting the package files.
You can duplicate existing packages and adjust the content in a text editor (wordpad or something). They look like this when you open them:
I 8.5 11
0.25 0.25 4 5
0.25 5.5 4 5
4.25 0.25 4 5
4.25 5.5 2 2.5
4.25 8.25 2 2.5
6.25 5.5 2 2.5
6.25 8.25 2 2.5
This layout will place 7 images on a 8.5x11 sheet, 3 4x5 and 4 2x2.5.
You need to adjust coordinates to make it work for other sheets. There are instructions included with Elements. I found them a little awkward so rewrote them. Find the book here:
If you let me know the layout, I can help you translate that into a package.
I didn't know I even had Picture Package. Will look into it and see what I can do and if I can't figure it out will definitely get back to you.
Is there something in Hidden Powers that makes it easier, or did you mean another book. I have Hidden Powers and just wish I had more hours in the day to work on it. I am learning quite a lot from it and haven't gotten very far yet. Keep going back to be sure I understand what I think I know.
There are instructions in Hidden Power...I probably could have made it easier by creating a word macro or something, but it starts getting a little too technical for many users at that point so I avoided such things. I found the Adobe instructions a little difficult myself, so I redid them in hopes of being clearer.
I am glad you are "going back". Realize I've been working for quite a few years in digital imaging, and I went over those materials pretty quickly, giving just enough so the book would move along yet hopefully anyone could follow (if not grasp 100% the first time). Newer users -- and even some people new to the techniques discussed -- SHOULD repeat exercises, both with the supplied images, and with their own.
Don't hesitate to ask questions here in the forum, I like to hear people chime in and discuss ideas and directions that might not have been covered in the book specifically.
