Picture Package Layouts, Customizing
I'm trying to print an 8 x 10 inch sheet of eight cards, 2 x 4 inch Memorial cards with copy/picture on both sides. Does anyone know where I could get the code/information needed to insert into the text-editing application, "layouts folder" (inside the Presets folder).
The 2.5 x 3.5 (preset) is just too short and too wide.
Per a post at adobe.com PS for Windows forum, the "ReadMe.txt" in that folder has info on how to format a file that Picture Package can read/use to generate what you need.
Just looked and there's one definitely hidden among the others.
If you did default install, here's the path:
c:\program files\adobe\photoshop 7.0\presets\layouts\ReadMe.txt
You don't need a special application to craft this file. MS-Word or Wordpad would work. As long as the textfile you create is syntactically correct and you don't violate Picture Package capabilities, i.e., try to fit 9-5"x7" images into 8.5"x11", I would think you should be set.
Does any of this help or did I answer the wrong question? In any event thanks for asking. I learned something researching this.
Danny, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I actually had the path but for some reason (I'm stupid) I missed the ReadMe link......
If anyone needs a Picture Package on 8x10 with (8) 2.25 x 4 inch pictures/memorial cards, well, here's the code:
p 576 720
0 0 288 162
0 162 288 162
0 324 288 162
0 486 288 162
288 0 288 162
288 162 288 162
288 324 288 162
288 486 288 162
I'm on my way to the printers, if there's a problem I'll let you know...
Thanks again Danny!
Greatly appreciate your sharing the results on this custom format. This will be helpful down the road for others following in your footsteps.
RE: Missing the "Readme" in the middle of that folder.
Don't feel bad. Happend to me, too. I completely missed it on the first pass myself. Went back a second time and sure enough, there it was. Forest for the trees deal, I guess!
Glad this worked out. Keep havin' fun!
I couldn't believe how perfect the back and front lined up... Picture Package is great!
--- For anyone using this feature; File, Automate, Picture Package. If you're going to be printing back to back, don't forget to rotate one side 180º, upside-down, before you enter it into Picture Package, so as to print on the opposite side of a card, with both tops at the top. Don't flip it though, as this will reverse the image and if there's type, it will be backwards...
..because I wanted the copies on card stock, the copy center had to print on 8 1/2 X 11, so I had to cut 1/4 inch off each side and 33% off the lead edge...
Good Luck All!
