Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Previewing Prints

Previewing Prints

Ink and paper for color inkjet printers are expensive, particularly glossy photo paper. If you’re unsure about what’s going to print, it’s best to preview the output before committing it to expensive paper. Another reason to preview your printout is that the preview in the Print dialog only shows you the first page of photos to print.

To preview prints:

1.
Select one or more photos to print.

2.
Either choose Print from the File menu (), or click the Print button in the organize pane to display the Print dialog.

3.
Pick a style and set desired options.

4.
Click the Preview button.

iPhoto “prints” the selected photos to a temporary PDF document called “Untitled” and opens it in Apple’s Preview application (Figure 6.5).

Figure 6.5. To preview a printout in Apple’s Preview application (shown above), click Preview in the Print dialog.


5.
Click the thumbnails on the right side to see multiple pages, and when you’re done, close the window.
