Printing

How many things can go wrong when you print? Let us count the ways.

I can’t print more than one photo per page.

Check the following:

  • Have you, in fact, selected more than one photo to print?

  • Choose File Page Setup. Make sure the paper size is US Letter (or whatever paper you’ve loaded). Click OK.

  • Choose File Print. From the Presets pop-up menu, choose Standard; from the Style pop-up menu, choose N-Up; then choose a number from the “Photos per page” pop-up. (Make sure “One photo per page” is turned off.) You’ll now see all of your selected images side by side in the preview pane. They’re ready to print.

From the Camera Preferences popup menu, choose Image Capture. You could even choose another program to intervene when your camera is plugged in (by choosing Other). Middle: This is the main Image Capture window that now appears when you plug in your camera. To download only some of the photos, click Download Some.

In slide sorter view, Shift-click or -click the thumbnails of the pictures you want. In list view, Shift-click or -click as though they’re Finder list-view files.
