I have the Canon Selphy CP900. Using the iPhone App I'm trying to print the two images per sheet. I selected the 2 up in the layout setting and borderless in my app. But it's still printing one per page at full size. What am I not doing right?

I'm no help, but I know I'm getting this for Christmas, so I hope you get an answer! Have you checked Youtube to see if there are any tutorial videos?

I'm crossing my fingers that this is possible! I'd love to print wallet sized photos on there and not have to only have one per page!

I did not find anything in the documentation on Canon's website saying this it is possible to print two pictures on a single paper from the iPhone to the Selphy. Heck, I'm trying to figure out how to get the borders OFF the 2-up prints from my MacBook to the Canon Selphy.

Ok so it's maybe that its just possible from a computer not the app?

You can definitely do it right from the printer menu. I can't print 2 ups with the canon selphy simple print software, I have to do it straight from the printer. I know someone posted in another thread about the 800 that they can do 2 ups from Photoshop with their mac direct to the selphy. I don't have that option with photoshop on my pc.

I haven't tried the app...I have an android...so can't help you there. I feel like someone mentioned how to do this in selphy thread on the Studio calico board recently. I think they said you can't select different size pictures from the APP but the poster uses a collage app and that works. I don't know what app she is talking about or how she uses it though.

If you use PicFrame or PicJoiner or another collage app, you can drop two photos into a 4x6 space and then save it as its own photo. It goes to your camera roll, so I'm assuming if you can get regular photos to print from your phone, this would work the same.
(I too am hoping to get the Selphy for Christmas so I will be checking to see if there is an even faster way!)

I could never figure it out and ended up downloading the PicFrame app.

I have PicStich. I guess I'll try that for now. That way I can still do it from my iPhone. Thanks for the suggestion.

Update. Used pic jointer app then saved to camera roll then used the canon app to print. Worked fabulously.

Marking my spot, as I'm hoping that Santa brings me one for Christmas. I'd love to be able to print two per page. YAY!
