Chapter 6. Printing Photos > Uses for standard prints

Uses for standard prints

  • Print photos for inclusion in traditional photo albums.

  • Frame your pictures using standard frame sizes.

✓ Tips

  • It's important to crop photos to the appropriate aspect ratio before printing: otherwise iPhoto shrinks the images proportionally to fit, increasing the white borders and ensuring that your photo will not be exactly the right size.

  • If you are printing more than one 2" x 3", 3" x 5", 4" x 6", or 5" x 7" photo, deselect the One Photo Per Page checkbox to print two per page, thus saving paper.

  • If you want multiple copies of each photo, click the Duplicate arrows to increase or decrease the number of copies to print.

  • You can buy photo paper in sheets of 4" x 6" paper that work with specific brands of printers. To print on paper of unusual sizes, you must change the paper size in the Page Setup dialog. Open it by choosing Page Setup from the File menu () and selecting the desired paper size. You will see the best results by using the Full Page style instead; my printer doesn't fill the paper when I use the 4" x 6" option in Standard Prints.

  • If you see a yellow warning icon on an 8" x 10" print, see if you get the warning icon in the Full Page style as well. If not, the warning is probably spurious; otherwise pick a smaller print size.
