    How to print multiple images on one page through iPhoto?
    So yeah, looking to print multiple images (all 4"x6") on one photo sheet. Is this possible?

    It may not be possible through iPhoto (though I stand to be corrected by any iPhoto expert who knows how - it is not obvious to me how to get iPhoto to do this).

    However, if you get any image editing package that supports layers, you can arrange each photo on a separate layer and then drag them into place such that they collectively fill up one side of paper, and then print that. GIMP is a good free program that can do this sort of thing...

    This is for a contact sheet. I don't think that this is what the original poster was asking about.

    I realize that, but it may be adaptable.

    Do you mean in a very particular order, or just to save paper? If the size has to be exactly 4x6 then I doubt the contact sheet will work.

    Maybe Posterino is what you are looking for.

    You might be able to set the printer layout to print more than one page one a real page. I don't have time right now to fiddle with that.

    I'm not sure if this is helpful, but this is how I have printed multiple different images in iPhoto;

    -Select (command + click or click + drag) the images you wish to print and click print
    -Select 'standard' as the theme
    -Over on the bottom right of the printing box you have an option 'paper size', so select your paper size.
    -below that there is an option 'print size', there you can select 6x4 or whatever you want, this is for your actual photo size.
    -iPhoto will automatically fit as many photos of that size as it can onto your paper size.
    -when you click 'print' again, it will take you to your print/quality settings where you can adjust them before you really 'print'.

    RozzieJ - Brilliant! You would not believe the lengths I have been going to achieve this. Thanks too to OP for the question.
