Printing lots of pics:
i would like to print lots of pics in photoshop 7.0 at one time....printing one pic at one time takes a long time....do you have any advice? thanks
- Well, Mrdinh, you didn't tell me what operating system you're using.
On a Macintosh, you simply drag a collection of files onto the desktop printer and it takes off. The desktop print monitor will open Photoshop, and print the files one by one.
I suspect there's a similar funtion on the Windows side by initiating the print command outside of Photoshop, targeting Photoshop files.
Be careful though: make sure the files are all ready to print and don't require individual options to be set in the print dialog.
You can also create a batch action, or employ any of the batch printing utilities that are available online.
No matter how many you print in bulk, each print will take the same amount of time to print.
