Printing Multiple Pictures On One Page (Windows Vs Mac)
Printing On Windows OS
Printing multiple images on the same page using the Windows OS is quite simple. Everything you need will be found in the “Print Pictures” pop-up.
- 1Locate the photos:
Start by opening the folder that contains the images you want to print. You can check that you have the correct images by looking at them in the “Windows Photo Viewer.”
- 2Select multiple photos:
When you have located your pictures, you will need to "select" them. This can be done by left-clicking your mouse and dragging the blue selection box across all the images.
Alternatively, you can also choose specific pictures by holding down the "Ctrl" button and left-clicking them individually.
- 3Open up the print menu:
Once you have chosen all your pictures (they should be highlighted in blue), you can then right-click any of them, which should bring up a gray contextual pop-up menu. Left click the “print” option.
- 4Choose the printer, paper size, and quality:
After clicking print, another window should open that has various print settings. At the top of this window should be the question, "How do you want to print your pictures."
We recommend keeping the paper sizes and print size quality at default. The printer destination is up to you. There are ways to increase the print quality if you would like to do so.
- 5Choose the layout:
The right side of the same window should have multiple layout options to choose from. Depending on the number of photos you want on one page, you’ll need to decide which option best suits your presentation.
Some available options are dual (two pictures), quad (four photos), wallet (nine photos), and contact sheet (several images). The more images, the smaller the photos will be on one page.
You can now print multiple images on a single page. At the bottom right of the same window, click “print.”
Printing On Mac OS
Printing multiple photos on a Mac OS is also a breeze. Your print job should be ready to go within minutes!
- 1Locate the pictures:
Open the “Finder” in your Mac OS and go to the home directory. Locate the “Pictures” or “Photos” folder.
- 2Select the pictures:
Once you have found the pictures you are looking for, you’ll then want to select them by holding down the ⌘ Command key while clicking each picture.
- 3Open with Preview:
Hold down the “Ctrl” button and right-click any of the selected pictures (they should be highlighted in blue). A contextual menu should then appear.
Hover over the “Open With” option, and left-click “Preview. The “Preview Window” will open, showcasing all your selected images on the left side of your screen.
- 4Select the drop-down menu:
Now that you're in the "Preview Window," navigate your way to the top left corner of the screen and left-click "file."
After you have clicked "file," there should be a "print" button or ⌘P symbol. Another drop-down menu should then appear in the middle of your screen.
- 5Change preview to layout:
Once you have decided on the printer and paper size, the most important setting is found under “Preview” again. Click on the blue upwards and downwards arrow icon to change from “preview to layout.”
- 6Choose the layout:
When "layout" has been selected, another option called "pages per sheet" should appear. These settings allow you to print multiple photos on your single paper. You can then choose between one to sixteen images.
Of course, you can have “two images” on a “four images” layout, but this will cause the images to be smaller and more spaced apart. After all, it is the layout and not the number of images in total that you are choosing.
You can now print multiple images on a single page. On the bottom right of the drop-down menu, click “print.”
Making A Collage
A collage is a collection of multiple images that appear on a single page. It’s very similar to printing multiple pictures on one page, but this time you can be a bit more creative.
Instead of spacing your pictures equally apart, a collage gives you the option to overlap them, add a background, and even insert a text of your choice.
There are many apps out there that can make a collage; some are paid, while others can be time-consuming and riddled with ads.
We, therefore, suggest using Canva's Free Photo Collage Maker.

The contact sheet setting, therefore, gets its name and use from film/photography contact sheets.  Benefits include:
Printing Multiple Pictures On One Page FAQs
How do you print a single picture multiple times on one page in Windows 10?
Printing a single picture multiple times on a single page (instead of multiple pages) follows the same steps as above, with one exception.
Right-click the image; select print; choose the layout settings (for example, wallet size pictures); and then, at the bottom left of the window, fill in the "copies of each picture."
How do you print multiple pictures on a single page using a smartphone?
The type of phone you have will determine whether you're able to print multiple pictures on a single page.
Since there's no official method, we would therefore recommend downloading a printing app.
Some great apps include Canon Print Service, HP Print Service, Samsung Print Service, and Canva.
How do I print from Windows 10 to PDF?
If you want to keep multiple photos on your desktop, then you can change your “printer” option to PDF. 
Once again, right-click the image/s; select print; under the “printer” option, choose “Microsoft Print to PDF.”
Click print as you would with any other document, and the file should now be saved as a PDF.
In conclusion, when asked how to print multiple pictures on one page, the solution can be found within a few clicks.
Inside Windows, the built-in "layout setting" will allow you to print up to 32 images on one page.
Mac follows the same "layout setting" process; however, it's capped at 16 images per page. Enjoy your prints!
