How to print multiple images on a single page

Lesa Snider, | June 8, 2011
Several handy printing techniques save you ink, paper, and time.

Happily, Bridge CS5 lets you save your settings as a template by clicking the tiny icon to the right of the template menu. When everything looks good, click the Save button at the bottom of the Output panel and Bridge exports your file as a PDF you can print.


As you make changes in the Output panel, you have to click the Refresh Preview button to update what’s shown in the Output Preview tab in the center of the window.


Sadly, your days of using Photoshop to print multiple images at popular sizes on a single page ended with CS3—that is, unless you download and install some optional plug-ins that give you that ability. Once they’re installed, restart Photoshop and then choose File -> Automate -> Contact Sheet II or Picture Package. (If you’re using Photoshop CS5, be sure to open it in 32-bit mode by opening the application’s Get Info dialog and turning on the 32-bit checkbox).

In the resulting dialog box, configure either Contact Sheet II or Picture Package to your heart’s desire. Preview your handiwork, grin smugly at your cleverness, and click Print.

Of course, there are numerous third-party options, too, such as the free Portraits & Prints, that can do many of the same tasks as above. Portraits & Prints comes with several templates that let you arrange different pictures at different sizes on the same page (you can even save your layouts as catalogs so you can reuse or reprint them later). No matter which program you choose, it’s great to know that printing multiple images per page can help with your photo printing, distribution, and display tasks.
