Normally a single image, would print in the center of the paper, and the entire page of paper is then wasted when you cut the image out. How do I make an image print going from one image square in the middle of the page, to there being  the same image but multiple times. Like this if you will. *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *


Also how do I make my printer print, an image on the top of the page, then turn the same page upside down, and now you'll be printing on the bottom of said page opisit of the first image, like this so there for you're getting the most out of one sheet of paper as possible.. Detailed answers please.

And how do you do that?

right click on the picture and pick "copy". Then left click next to the picture and then right click and press "paste". You can also hold down the left mouse button and scroll over the picture to highlight it, then hit "ctrl" and the "C" key at the sme time to copy, then left click next to the picture, hit "ctrl" and "v" to paste that picture next to the other one. Then you can continue to keep hitting "ctrl" and "v" over and over the get multiple pictures.

First you must increase the size of your canvas. Let's say you have a picture which is 100 x 100 pixels and you want to print it four times on one piece of paper.

First, increase your canvas size to 400 x 400 selecting NO to center image. This will create a new "picture" that is 400 x 400 with you original picture in the upper left hand corner. Different programs do this differently, so you'll have to poke around to figure out how yours does it. Now, highlight the original picture area. COPY then PASTE into the blank areas three times and voila!

I, however, use Miscrosoft Publisher to do this sort of thing and to do all sorts of other fun things with pictures. with MS Publisher, you can create a blank page and then copy and paste the picture anywhere you want on the page and multiple times.

What program are you using?

It's possible that she's using, like, paint? Which was the first program I could think of that automatically centers the picture? I don't think I ever printed anything directly from Photoshop so I don't know about that one.

To the OP: If possible, try putting the image on Word (it's the first program I could think of) and like the previous noters said, copy and paste them side by side, several times.

Use MS Paint if you arent already, then under the file menu, go to page setup to change where your picture will appear. Do this before or after copy/pasting as seen above

What computer program are you using? If you're just taking a picture you have opened and printing it, it will end up centered in the page.

Use Word, Open Office etc and you can simply copy, paste and move the image wherever you'd like on the page. Right click on the image you want, choose "copy", click onto your empty Word or Open Office page, right click again and choose "paste". This will insert your picture and it SHOULD have little reference squares around it. If it does, you'll be able to click and drag it wherever you want on the page.

To add more, simply right click and "paste" again...as many times as you need.

To be able to do the second thing you were wondering about...move the image to the very top of the page and print it. Then turn your page around (and upside down) and feed it through the printer again to print on the bottom. Keep in mind that your printer prints on the bottom of the page in the tray, so make sure it's feeding the right way to you don't print on the back instead of the bottom.

Yah! Word will work just like MS Publisher - mentioned above - but is a bit less feature rich.

Ok, so I figured out how to copy and paste using ms paint, but the problem is, now the copied and pasted items are significantly smaller in size than the original image. Somehow, copying them messes up their size. I'm also getting images that when scanned originally but manipulated, IE using paint to cut the one image out, then that image is blown up to be super huge:(

They may appear to be different in size in the application into which you've pasted, but rest assured, they still have the same number of pixels (width and height). You simply need to drag and pull on the edges to size them right again.

Oh, ok cause when they print they are definatly smaller than the scanned image. Just hold the scanned item up behind the print and yeah, they're not the same size. IT was really frusterating. I'll try that.

You're going to have to actually MANIPULATE the picture to print outside it's default..which will always be "center" if you just print from XP.

Maybe you should look up some computer program tutorials.

You don't open pictures in the old window's viewer, they open up in photoshop, and it too won't print normally, you have all these options, like 8 by 10 and 3.2 and 2.1 and 2.1 is to small and 3.2 is to big. Talk about a situation that is enough to make ya go nutty.
