More Options: Printing in Photoshop Elements

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

When printing photos from the Organizer or Photo Editor (Windows) or Photo Editor only (Mac), click the More Options button in the Print dialog box. The More Options dialog box opens; refer to the figure.

If you’ve used Photoshop Elements prior to version 8, these three items moved from the Print dialog box to the More Options dialog box (refer to the figure):

  • Printing Choices: Similar to what was available in earlier versions of Elements.

  • Custom Print Size: Various settings for the output size.

  • Color Management: Handles color profile selection and color management options.

When you want to manage color in Elements, you need to open the More Options dialog box.


The default selection is Printing Choices when you open the More Options dialog box. Choices available for printing your photos include the following:

  • Photo Details: Select the check boxes for the detail items you want printed as labels on your output.

  • Iron-on Transfer: This option is used for heat-transfer material such as Mylar, LexJet, and other substrates that require E-down printing (emulsion-down printing, where the negative and the image are flipped).

  • Border: Select the check boxes to print a border on the photo prints.

  • *Trim Guidelines: Select the Print Crop Marks check box to print crop marks.
