Hi, Photoshop Folks,

I have an older version (5.5) and want to print two pictures, each 4 x 6, on a single sheet of paper. I realize this must be pretty basic stuff, but can someone point me in the right direction?

thanks

Make a new document 8.25 * 6 and open and drag your two 4 * 6 background layers into it. The extra 0.25 will act as a separator.

Thanks, Mike, but I’m not sure what you mean by "open and drag your two 4 * 6 background
layers into it"?

Tom,

With your new document open, open the first image you want to add. You should now see two documents on screen, if not try Window>Arrange>Tile. With your first image, make sure your layers palette is visible, F7 on the keyboard.
Then click on and drag the "background" layer from the layers palette and drop it onto your new document. Use the move tool, V on keyboard to position the layer to suit. You can then close your first image document, open the second image document and repeat the above.

Thanks, Mike, this is really helpful.

So I am now able to drag the 2 pictures onto the new document. My problem is that the pictures do not take up enough room on the new document, and there’s too much blank space around the pictures.

I can send an image of what it looks like if that would help.

thanks again

What resolution are your two images compared to the new image? If your new image has a higher resolution than the ones you want to input they will appear smaller in the new document. They all need to be the same resolution.
