Printing Pictures

by dkb / March 21, 2006 8:28 PM PST

I have WinXp.
I am more often required to print pictures. I would like to know the software (preferably freeware) that would print for me any size picture.

The available lay outs in Windows Picture and Fax viewer do not suite my requirements.

Wallet-Prints layout prints are bigger for me and Contact-Sheet prints are too small besides these indicates the name of the picture with it.
Like wise other software like Irfanview/FastStone do not have the advantage that "Windows Picture and Fax viewer " has namely selecting number of copies per line in a sheet.
Please recommand any other software that could do my job.

But I stop short of offering any step by step or tutorial. Here and how I've used it, it seems to meet what you asked for in your post.

Thanks for your suggestion. This Easy JPG printer has a limitation of size. It prints only two sizes namely 3x5 and 4x6.
However I am still trying to find how it could be done by IrfanView as stated by Proffitt.

camera software?

where do you get these pictures you have to print? Are you taking them or getting them from others off their memory cards?

Many people assume that the software that comes with their cameras is useless.

very often the software will have some kind of album in it, and this will sometimes allow you to print various sizes and create albums to print thumbs or index sheets from.

Otherwise, you can try using some dbases that allow you to link with photo files, and print reports with the images sized as you want them.

What do you need the index sheets for, your reference or for product tracking?

I had to leave my place of birth and bundled whatever my ancestors had stored there with me. In the process of reconstruction of the records at the new place of my residence I found some rarer pictures in black and white of my ancestors from the belongings.

Now I want to make copies of the same for distribution amongst my relations scattered at many places in the world. The idea of printing different sizes and in rows (paper 8.5x11 in) came to me there only.

have tech support. If you want tech support, you will have to buy something. My suggestion is Photoshop Elements. For about $100, it will do whatever resizing you want, and you can even call Adobe if you can't figure out how to do it.
