Chapter 6. Printing Photos > Uses for contact sheets

Uses for contact sheets

  • Contact sheets are traditionally used to look at a number of photos at once, which is handy for comparing different versions of the same picture, or for letting relatives who don't have a computer pick which photos they'd like you to order for them as prints.

  • You can buy special paper for stickers or decals, so printing a contact sheet could be an easy way to make custom stickers. You don't have enough control in iPhoto to print on perforated or peel-off sticker stock, so you must cut out the stickers.

✓ Tips

  • If you select only one photo and print a contact sheet, iPhoto replicates the photo as many times as possible on the page.

  • See “Printing N-Up Photos” in this chapter for slightly different options.

  • The maximum number of photos to print across the page is 8; that gives you 13 rows for a total of 104 pictures.

  • For more white space between photos and a layout that doesn't print all the photos in landscape orientation (only when printing multiple photos), deselect the Save Paper checkbox.

  • If you want titles or comments printed as well, print pages from the Year Book or Catalog book theme instead.

  • If you see a yellow warning icon on a photo in the Print dialog, try increasing the number of photos per page to print the photos at a smaller size.
