Mac directions

Get started. Create a folder on your desktop. Place all of the images that you want on the contact sheet in that folder.


Choose your source. Choose File > Print Layouts > Contact Sheet. Under Source Images, click Choose and navigate to the folder you created in step 1.


Set up your file. Under Document, type 4.75 for Width and Height. Make sure that the measurement units are set to inches.

For Resolution, type 150 or 300. Even though your images will be quite small, you want to be able to see them clearly. A higher resolution will help.

Choose RGB Color for Mode. If your images are black and white, then choose Grayscale.


Image layout options. Under Thumbnails, you can specify the number of images that appear on a page and how they are sorted. Click Place and choose Across First or Down First. The Columns and Rows settings determine the size of the thumbnails. Experiment to figure out what works best for you. Your settings will depend on whether your images are horizontal, vertical, square, or rectangular.


Create the reference label. If it is not already checked, select Use Filename as Caption. Photoshop Elements will then label the image with its existing name. Choose a different font and type size if you want. Click OK. Photoshop Elements will then begin placing all of your images into one file. If you have more than will fit on a page, it creates a new file. When the images are all in the file, save and then print your new contact sheet.
