Printing Sampler Sheets


iPhoto's fifth printing style provides two templates that mix photos of different sizes. The first template places three photos on a page (Figure 6.8); the second arranges six photos on a page.

Figure 6.8. Template 1 of iPhoto's Sampler style prints three photos on a page.


Uses for sampler sheets:

  • Print collections of photos for relatives, instead of printing individual prints.

  • Print your most recent photos for an informal, gallery-style display.

Tips

  • Unless you plan to cut the printed photos out, make sure all the photos you print with a Sampler layout are of the same orientation. If you mix landscape (horizontal) and portrait (vertical) photos, iPhoto can't orient them all correctly.

  • If you want your printed page to be in portrait orientation, use landscape photos with Template 1 (Figure 6.9) or portrait photos with Template 2. If you want your printed page to be in landscape orientation, use portrait photos with Template 1 or landscape photos with Template 2 (Figure 6.10).

    Figure 6.9. Here's the preview of landscape photos printed with Sampler Template 1, which results in a page in portrait orientation.

    Figure 6.10. Here's the preview of landscape photos printed with Sampler Template 2, which results in a page in landscape orientation.

  • Pay close attention to iPhoto's preview to make sure you know exactly what will print before clicking the Print button!

  • To control their page location, arrange the photos manually in an album first.

  • If you select only one photo, iPhoto uses that photo in all the spots on the page.

  • With careful trimming, you can fit a sampler sheet into an 8" x 10" frame.

  • For different layouts, either print pages from a book layout or see "Printing Custom Layouts," later in this chapter.
