    i didn't know where to post this exactly.

    so you how when you go to a portrait studio, or your kids gets their pictures done at school and you get these neat little sheets of photos with one 4x6 and the rest of the space is filled with wallets. how is that done? is it a photoshop/aperture plug in or is something a photographer has to make custom and save it as a print preset? is there a separate program that does this?

    is there a name for these sheets of organized photos?

    Have you tried talking to the people who print photos at the schools in your area? or a nearby city/town if you can't get them to co-operate?

    I create those in PhotoShop for customers. I start with a blank 8x10 canvas and then paste in the 4x6 and the 2x3 wallets. After arranging them I flatten the image and save it as a single .jpg that gets printed. Takes a couple of minutes.

    Photoshop's "Batch File" can be used I think...

    If there's a way to batch this... PLEASE!! Someone enlighten me... I'm not the greatest PhotoChop technician so the way that I do it may not be the best thing ever...

    Arcsoft photoprinter 5 does this as well but it's also limited

    * it does not let you do for example 1 4x6 and rest wallet etc..*

    thanks but i rock a mac, and hate windows with every computing breath i have. with that said, i find this incredibly frustrating. macs are made for photography and all things graphic.

    ok the solution is (for those who need to know). these "sheets" are called "portrait sheets" (thank you sears portraits online). there is a plug in available for download from *gasp* adobe. google contact sheet for photoshop and somewhere along the search you will find a link to the adobe downloads website, you will come across a plug in that says stuff about contact sheets and (this is what i was looking for) photo packages. download. for the mac it was a dmg file so i imagine for windows it would be a zip or an exe. for those of you who have uh gotten a copy of photoshop somehow *wink wink* there is nothing that makes you verify that you are an owner of a legit copy of the program. hope this helps noobs like me in the future.

    happy shootin yall
