The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: You can also choose the final resolution output in the Resolution field (which I lowered to 212 ppi here, because you don't really need a high resolution when you're not printing to a commercial press). Then, you can pick the color mode you'd like for your final output (in this case, I chose RGB in the Mode pop-up menu because I'll be printing to a color inkjet printer). The bottom-left section of the dialog is for labeling your photos, but be forewarned-- these labels appear printed right across your photos, so use them only if you're creating client proof sheets--not the final prints. Note: Like the Web Photo Gallery, with the exception of adding your own custom text, this information is pulled from embedded info you enter in the File Info dialog, found under the File menu. Step Four: Click OK and Photoshop automatically resizes, rotates, and compiles your photos into one document. The one thing many photographers have complained about is that Picture Package doesn't offer you a way to add a white border around each photo in the package, but we've got a workaround for that, so close this docu- ment without saving it. Step Five: To have a white border appear around your photos in Picture Package, you have to first add that space manually. Start by pressing the letter D to set your Background color to white, and with your photo still open, go under the Image menu and choose Canvas Size (or press Option-Command-C [PC: Alt-Control-C]). Make sure the Relative checkbox is selected and enter the amount of white border you'd like in the Width and Height fields (I used a quarter of an inch). Continued Showing Your Client Chapter 15 439
