    Can I merge (or whatever term) multiple small photos (individual
    files, already on computer) so I can print them on a single sheet? I
    don't want to put each smaller photo on a single 8.5x11 sheet of
    costly photo paper.

    I have photo editors from Dell, Lexmark, and MS (in WinXP). Will one
    of these let me do this, or some other s/w? Thanks.

    If you view the images in Windows Explorer, then select 'Print' as one
    of the 'Pictur Tasks it will fire up the 'Print photos Wizard' there are
    various options for printing out multiple photos on one sheet.

    Most photo editors can do the same sort of thing I should imagine,
    possibly with more flexibility.

    While these other editors might do the job, I'd recommend taking a look at
    Qimage. It will do this and many other printing functions. Several of us
    here in r.p.d swear by it. Lifetime upgrades and good support. Give the
    demo a try: http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage

    Does Qimage take color-matching profiles into account in its printing
    process?

  6. Yes . it has a very good color management support, both for
    printing and viewing. Moreover, it has som very nifty upscaling
    algorithms for making big photos. I recommend it warmly.

  7. I can't see that it handles color management. Does it?
    It might use Window's default color management though.
    Hard to tell from the information at the web pages.

  8. try Kodak's EasyShare software. It has a variety of layouts to print
    multiple-up photos on a single page and goes through the trouble to match
    your images to the ink and paper that you have in your printer. (it works
    really well on Kodak paper)

    admittedly, I'm biased. But it's free and does what you want.

    I own both Qimage and Prism. Although I find Qimage to be just brilliant,
    I find it a too big undertaking for ddi software to make a profiling
    product. In my humble opinion, Prism is a non functional product. It is
    regarded as almost impossible to make a working profile with an ordinary
    scanner and the profiles Prism made for me was totally useless.

    I won't even ask about "profiling product", but what's ddi software?

  14. Word does not have color management and good scaling algorithms for
    quality prints. You can sure use this method, but it will not result
    in optimal results. Moreover - word is not a reliable typesetter -
    different versions may render your pictures different, resulting
    in a totally different layouts.

    In PaintShop Pro this is a breeze to do. You can put as many pictures on a page as you
    please (within reason, of course). They can be rotated, resized, aligned, or moved
    around all you want. This is a wonderful program.
