Does anyone know if you can print 4 different photos on a 4x6 sheet with the Charm/Show? Or do you have to print 4 of the same picture?

I can't seem to figure out how to select 4 different photos to print wallet size on a 4x6 sheet. Am I missing something?

TIA.

S.

Lucy...Do you have Photosheet??? It is free to download. Put that on your computer and click and drop photos into the provided templates. It is very easy. Then print!

I used to use Photosheet but I now have a Mac, whic is my problem. Last I heard Photosheet wasn't compatible with a Mac.

Is there a similar product for use with a Mac?

Thank you.

Yes you can print more than one on the charm and Pic frame is the application for Mac. You need to know your aspect ratios (if you want two 3x4s on a 4x6 use the 1:1 ratio, etc)

I take my camera to CVS, put the memory card in their machine, choose collages and print 2 or 4 different photos on a 4x6 right then and there. Instantly.

Back when, I had figured out how to print 2 different 3x4 photos on one 4x6. I can't remember how I did it but I found this in the online Picturemate 260 manual (which is the one I have; it's older).

At the photo selection screen, press OK to select the current photo for printing (see Printing Individual Photos).

For the Portrait Packages and US Passport, PictureMate prints multiple copies of each photo per sheet. For other layouts, to print two or more photos per sheet, select multiple copies or multiple photos.

For example, if you want 3 mini-wallet photos of one image and 4 of another, select 3 copies of photo A and 4 copies of photo B. Then choose Mini-wallet as the layout setting.
Your photos will be printed on 2 sheets of paper as shown:

6.
Press or to select additional photos if necessary.
7.
Adjust any other settings you want, then press Print to preview your photos.
8.
If the layout preview is correct, press Print to start printing.

So it does seem it can be done straight from the printer without any special software.

I would love to know how to do this if you don't mind sharing how to do it.

Thanks

I see you're using a Mac. I just did a tutorial on printing photos with the charm on a Mac using iPhoto (I don't use the charm software or the control panel on the printer itself) It prints multiple on one sheet, as long as the size you select is small enough. I've printed up to 6 on one page using this method, but there are always slight borders around each pic, so if you want a full sheet of pics with no white space between them you'd have to use something other than iPhoto. check it out and see if it works for you.

do you have Epson's Easy Photo Print software installed? Because that steps me right through the process very easily in the menus that automatically pop up. Easy peasy!
