Many people prefer to print their photos on inexpensive color inkjet printers rather than waiting for online orders.
To print photos:
Select one or more photos to print.
Choose Print from the File menu (). iPhoto displays the Print dialog (Figure 6.1).
From the Presets pop-up menu, choose appropriate settings (the contents are printer-specific). If you don't like the presets, you can access all available settings by clicking the Advanced button.
From the Style menu, choose the desired style: Contact Sheet, Full Page, Greeting Card, N-Up, Sampler, or Standard Prints.
Set the options for the style you selected.
Enter the number of copies to print.
Click the Print button. iPhoto sends your photos to the printer.
In book mode, choosing Print from the File menu lets you print book pages that mix photos and text on a single page.
If you see a yellow warning icon in the Print dialog, see "Dealing with Warning Icons" in Chapter 9, "Troubleshooting."
If necessary, iPhoto shrinks images proportionally to fit, thus increasing the border size.
Save changes made in the Advanced dialog for repeated use by choosing Save As from the Presets menu while you're viewing the Advanced settings.
If you've never printed from Mac OS X before, follow these steps to add a printer (make sure it's connected and turned on first).
In the Print dialog, choose Edit Printer List from the Printer pop-up menu to display the Printer Browser window in the Printer Setup Utility.
Select the printer to add and click the Add button.
Quit the Printer Setup Utility.
