In Photoshop Elements, printing is the final step you take in rendering a picture, a group of pictures, or a printed creation. When you start the printing process, you should have already corrected the brightness, saturation, contrast, and sharpness of an image. If you're printing a photo album, card, or other printed creation, you should have already completed the layout process and reviewed the result. Printing is the coup de grace. If you've set up your printer properly and calibrated its output with the color you see on your monitor (see 103 About Color Management and 104 About Adobe Gamma for instructions), what you see onscreen in Photoshop Elements will soon become what you get on paper.


To print a single image, use the Editor; to print a group of images or multiple copies of one image, use the Organizer.

There are, however, a few steps you must complete before you click that Print buttonwhether you initiate the process from the Editor or the Organizer. You should, for example, change the print options so that your printer is aware that you're using photo paper or heavy bond paper (if you're printing a card, for example). And then, if you're printing photos, there are the endless choices you can make about what to print: multiple copies of the same image, single prints from a group of images, a set of prints in standard photo sizes, or small thumbnails of each image you can use as a reference. You can also reverse the image on-the-fly when printing onto iron-on transfer paper. As a final option, you might choose not to print your images at all, but to upload them to an Internet printing service instead. In this chapter, you'll learn how to complete all these tasks.


You can print an existing creation from the Organizer by selecting it and clicking the Print button on the Shortcuts bar and then selecting Print from the menu that appears. You can also print a creation after creating or editing it by clicking the Print button on the Step 5: Share page of the Creation wizard.
