Printing images

Corel Paint Shop Pro offers many ways to print images. You can print from the Browser palette, use a template, or use a custom layout to meet specific size requirements.

On the left, a contact sheet was created by printing from the Browser palette. In the center, a template was used to print to common photo sizes. On the right, a custom layout was used to meet specific print size requirements.

You can print your images directly from folders on the Browser palette. When you print from the Browser palette, Corel Paint Shop Pro automatically creates a contact sheet for your images, with the folder name at the top of the page and a page number at the bottom of the page.

Templates help you simplify image placement and sizing. You can use templates to lay out and print images in standard sizes, including 4 X 6 inches, 5 X 7 inches, and 10 X 15 centimeters. You can use a Corel Paint Shop Pro template, or you can create your own custom template from a page layout that you create.

For information about preparing images for professional output, see "Printing images" in the Help.
