    I have the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 software and want to print the
    pictures I selected, edited
    and which are ready for print.

    I have difficulty in that after selecting Layout, I find no way how to drag
    the pictures in the left pane to the layout. It always shows only the
    presently worked on picture, and one can select center or move it. But I see
    no ways how to ADD then another image to it.

    Who can help?

    Thanks, David. Went there. Rather expensive just for Printing. I think at
    this time.

    It's not.

    This software is amazing. The resampling is VERY good up and down sizing and
    makes printing multiple images simple. It's WELL worth the money they ask
    for it.

    File/Automate/PicturePackage
    source Use is set to frontmost image but you can also change that to folder
    or file
    then select page size
    then layout
    to the right is a thumbnail view of the layout with multiple copies of the
    frontmost image on display
    click on any one of those images and it'll ask you what image you want to
    put i that space, select your chosen file from whatever folder and away you
    go

    Thanks, never thought that THIS PROGRAM (Adobe Photoshop Elements 2) IS SO
    DIFFICULT WHEN IT COMES TO PRINTING.

    What do they think? We just want to play around and Edit to our hearts
    content so we can only LOOK at the new image??? Had I known that then I
    would never have bought this Adobe program.

    But I do thank you for detailed advice.

    Besides just doing this it does a lot of other things as well, multipage
    posters, slide shows, etc. One thing it does automatically is it queries
    your printer driver to determine what resolution it wants and allows you to
    automatically resample the image to match this with some of the best
    algorithms around. For the relatively low cost you get lifetime upgrades
    and the author Mike Chaney provides real support and over time has added
    many no feature at the suggestion of users. Give the demo a try.

    Thanks for the reply and I will try the Trial version.

    But - you website is absolutely great. I am a camera bug myself, having been
    in 35 mm and before that in 4x4 format, and now in digital (Olympus 10X
    Optical) and like you, have a LOT to learn.

    Ed, I guess the CP 5700 is the best out of the bunch, right?

    I'll second the printing wizard that comes with Windows XP. Do what you
    need with Photoshop, or whatever, and then send your pics to the My Pictures
    folder on your computer. The printing wizard in XP will let you print
    everything from a full-size print to several different photos on one sheet
    in a variety of sizes. And if you have XP it's free.

    PSE2 is a bit long in the tooth these days. I know PSP8 and now 9 have this
    capability. I'd imagine PSE3 does now as well. I 've dl'd the demo but
    haven't installed it yet to give it a try.

    Ah, now our ages are showing. BUT - I did all kind of things like that years
    ago in the darkroom, but of course, there was a learning curve there too.
    That is why I want now to learn in the Digital field.
    How's that?

  15. It is a bit stubborn but the MS XP printing wizard will print one or
    several pictures on one page (just click Print on the menu). It is
    fast and not bad for record keeping but if you want control, Photoshop
    (Elements etc.) or other photographic editing software is better.

    I have Photoshop Elements 2 but never found a Print selection there.

    I bought yesterday Adobe Album 5.0 and it seems to do the job now just fine.

  17. I never had PS Elements 2 but in the original Elements the route
    File|Automate|Contact Sheet might do what you wanted.
