    My wife makes miniature dollhouse items. I have 7 jpegs which I have resized
    to 17mm x 23mm (the size she needs). The idea is to print them on one sheet
    of A4 photo paper (so as not to have to use 7 sheets). In PS7 I open a new
    document..A4 size, and drag each of the 7 pictures to the document. I then
    flatten the image. For some reason (using A4 copy paper as a trial) the pics
    are printing at the wrong size...namely too small. If I create a new
    document smaller than A4 (eg 4x6 inches) and drag the 7 images to it, and
    then print...the images are too big! I presume this is an easy solution to
    this? I'd be grateful for some help.

  2. Did you select 'Fit to Page' perhaps?

    When you create your new document, look at the resolution. Make sure it
    is the same resolution as your JPEGs.

    When you resize your JPEGs, you do have "resample image" turned OFF,

    I'm guessing your problem may be that you are resizing the original images
    without resampling, but that information (Which translates to a change in
    dpi) is not being dragged across with them. When you drag the images only
    the pixel information comes along. So when you resize make sure you check
    'resample' and that the dpi setting is the same as your A4 page. That I
    think may solve your problem?

    Thank you all...problem now solved. I didn't have the resolution of the new
    document set correctly. Many thanks for the replies...much appreciated.
