Do you mean inches? 4x6 inches? That sort of thing? I'd think what you would do is to get 4x6 inch photo paper. Then choose that paper size in the original print dialog that comes up.
I print 4x6 inch prints all the time with iPhoto. My HP printer even has a seperate paper tray for 4x6 photo paper. Yes, choose 4x6 as the paper size, just make sure you choose the borderless option.
Costco will make 4x6 prints for $.13 each
Ouch. That's actually very expensive. Apple sells them for 12 cents, and that is expensive too. I've seen them for as little as 5 cents. But 9 cents is more common.
Love this tutorial! Thank you
Can you change the size of the simple border? I want to print four photos that take up the whole page rather than have a large border around them.
Do you mean the margin around the outside of the page? If so, then that is usually limited by your printer. Some printers have a large merging, while others specialize in being able to print to the edge of a page.
If you mean the style for printing in iPhoto, just experiment. There are so many settings as you can see in this video. So try some others. (Print to PDF to experiment without wasting paper).
Thanks for the vid but you haven't explained how to "print multiple copies of the same photo" as per the vid description. My printer drinks ink like crazy so i like to batch up printing to stop it cleaning in between each print. So i select say 6 photos to print but want 4 of the 2nd and say 3 of the 5th. I can't find a way of doing this without duplicating the photo which is a pain. Any ideas?
I think you should watch the video again. I start talking about printing multiple copies of the same photo on one sheet at about 2:10.
How do you change the color of the photo border when designing a book in iPhoto "11?
I haven't tried all of the different themes, but I'd imagine there isn't a border color setting. It just is what it is. The idea is for them to be easy to use and quick -- so limited settings.
VERY helpful, Gary. Thanks.
Very nice. Thanks. Question...is there any way to print...say a 4 by 6 or 5 by 7
photo with any options for printing in iPhoto? Know you can print columns but is there a way to print specific sizes? Say I wanted to print a page of 2 by 2 of the same photo....can this be done? thanks, again
