Printing multiple images

Postby AndyK » Tue Jan 29, 2008 9:44 pm

Hi :D

great App so far, but one thing I would like to have better.

When I mark, or open, multiple images, then going to print them and choosing Layout: collection (Bildersammlung) 4"x6".
Rather than having one picture three times on a sheet, I would like to have the 3 (marked/opened) pictures on one sheet.

Could this be done, or maybe inserted as new layout-option?

Thanks in advance
AndyK

Do you have tried 'thumbnail'?

Well, yes I tried it.

Printing out 2 different images at 100x150mm (appr. 4"x6") is not that big problem.
All I have to do is calculating the paper width minus the image width cut to half to get the amount for the border to set at: (210-150)/2=30mm
Then to set up 1col and 2 rows...

But! This only works if I want to print out two pictures on a page. On a normal DIN A4 sheet three images could be printed easily altogether. I would waste paper printing only two on one sheet.

The "Collection" is already near the solution I'd like to have, maybe just a checkbox "Multiple images on one sheet?" if more than one image is to be printed...
So we could have the option to let it work in the old manner, or use it to print out multi images on one sheet a canny way. :)

Superior would be, if the spots for the images could be (de-)selected. If I printed one photo the day before and now going to reuse the paper for the next two photos I would like to have the possibility to deselect the spot which was already used on that paper.
