One option you have for printing multiple photos from Photoshop Elements 11 is picture packages. This feature prints multiple copies of the same photo or multiple copies of many photos.

A picture package is typically a single sheet of paper with the same photo printed at different sizes — something like your class pictures, graduation photos, or prom photos. You can choose to print a single picture package from one photo selected in the Organizer, or you can select multiple photos and print them all as multiple picture packages.

To create a picture package with Windows, do the following:

  1. Open the Organizer.

  2. Select a single photo or multiple photos in the Organizer that you want to print as a picture package(s).

  3. Choose File→Print or press Ctrl+P.

    The Prints dialog box opens.

  4. From the Select Printer drop-down menu, select the printer you want to use for your output.

  5. Select Picture Package from the Select Type of Print drop-down menu.

    The Prints dialog box refreshes to show your picture package options.

  6. Select a layout from the Select a Layout drop-down menu.

    As you make layout selections, you see a dynamic preview of the picture package. Select different layouts to examine the results and choose the layout you want for your picture package.

    The photos can be printed with a frame. Select an option from the Select a Frame drop-down menu or leave the default None selected to print no frame on the photos.

    Choose a color profile from the same dialog box that appears when you print a contact sheet.

  9. Click OK.
