How to print n-up in Photoshop?

I have Photoshop CS running on a G5 Macintosh under OS X 10.3 server,
and an Epson R800 printer.

I have two naive questions:

1. How can I print n copies of a picture on a single page. In
particular, I want to print two 5x7 photos on a
single US letter page. Should be possible: 7" wide, with two
5" high photos one over the other.

2. How can I join two Photoshop canvases? Say, side-by-side or
one over the other? You see what I'm getting at, as a (klutzy)
solution to 1.

It should be simple, but the Epson printer driver doesn't let me enter
free-form paper sizes. The 2-up printing in the printer driver doesn't
seem to work.

The simplest way is to set up a half page paper size with your printer
driver, and feed each sheet of paper through twice, once for each image.
Define the size to be slightly larger than 8.5 x 5.5, say 5.75, and you'll
get slightly more print area per page.

Make a blank canvas, add a guide to split the page in two, and drag or cut
and paste the images, followed by a free transform to get the size right.

All the epson driver's I've seen allow this. Look at the last entry in the
paper size list - It should say "User Defined". Select it and specify the
paper size in 1/100 inches or cm.

You are a smart guy, Ronald. See "help" and keywords like "automate".

Go to File New - Cooose letter size in the preset window.
choose your resolution 240 ppi say
Click OK.
Once your new canvas is open - click on the document size in the very bottom
left corner of your screen - should show you which way the paper is set for
printing - landscape or portrait - if it is not as you wish go to file -
page setup to alter.
Open your two images at 7x5 (hopefully) and just drag each image onto the
new canvas (you will then have 3 layers) - you can set guides for
positioning
view - show rulers - then click and drag on the ruler to where you want the
guide.
whilst in view click on 'snap to' to make positioning easier.
You can downsize the images as you wish by edit - transform - scale, it is
not recommended to upsize them that way!
Once you have them positioned you can print - or flatten the image and save
as new document.
I hope that is what you want to do??

Automate? That's what you'd look for if you knew the answer...
