I got my Selphy 900 for Christmas to use for PL, but I've only used it sporadically until this weekend, when I had a marathon PL work session. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to print more than one photo on a 4x6 from my phone. I'm sure it can be done via hooking up my computer to the printer, but I really don't want to have to transfer pics from my phone to my computer and then back to the printer. Is there a way to do this?

Can somebody explain it or point me in the direction of a tutorial somewhere? TIA!

I use the PicFrame app to make a new photo of the two pics. Then you can save to your camera roll and print like a regular photo. Hope this helps.

The app I use is called Photocollage. I find it works really well.

Hi, I have a question for Jodygirl, or anyone else who uses picframe. I use this app and create the collage of photos but when I save on my iPhone and then print, the top and bottom of the photos are missing as the picframe is square but the photo paper is 6x4.

Is there anyway round this? How can I make the image smaller so it fits on a 6x4 photo paper?

Hope I've explained it OK

There are frames & ratios you can use which help. You can also adjust the width of the white boarder in the style section. This will make the photos smaller. I always use a 4:3 ratio and then pic the frame I need. You can also chose the 'bordered' version in the canon app, though this shrinks it quite alot, and there's no control on your end. But then the 'not bordered' sometimes skews it. It takes a bit of practise lol!

Thanks Cattb22, that's a great help! Why didn't I notice that darn ratio button? It's been driving me nuts for months. I'm off now to do my Project Life with this new found information

Thanks again.
