Need help on printing pictures from a disk

marie_ndcalJanuary 27, 2013

I have several disks of photos from Photo Works, which has gone out of business and would like to print the pictures as shown on the disk to serve as a reference for the pictures I do have printed out. That is not individual but exactly shown. Can this be done and if so, how? I also noticed some of the disks are dirty and what can I use to clean them? I don't want these many pictures on the computer permanently. Any other ideas would be appreciated
Thanks Marie

Not sure I understand the meaning of..."print the pictures as shown on the disk to serve as a reference for the pictures I do have printed out." It sounds like you want to print groups of thumbnail images. If so, why not copy/paste them into a .doc and then print that? Without knowing the number of discs, number of images and their size...not sure I understand your reluctance to store them on the computer unless you are very short on disc space. If that's the case, a few cheap USB flash drives could solve that problem.

Yes, I want to print the thumbnail images to use as a refrerence. Did not think of copy and paste, but I am not the most experienced on a computer.

Marie - there is also a way to print a contact sheet thought the Windows print wizard if you haven't had success yet.

Open the file with the pictures on it. Click on the first picture you want printed, then while holding down the shift key, click on the last one. All the pictures will be highlighted. Right click and select PRINT.

Make sure you paper size is set to what you want, and on the right side select "contact sheet". If you have 8.5x11 paper, it will print 35 small pictures per page. It will automatically make more than one page if you have more than 35 pictures.

Also, in more recent versions of Windows there is a utility called "Snipping Tool" which is in the Accessories folder. It allows you to capture and save/print anything onscreen. It opens a re-sizeable window that can capture any rectangular area, from something small to the whole screen. If you are looking at a bunch of thumbnail views, it can capture all of them that are displayed with one click. Iowagirl's suggestion sounds like it might be better for your purposes, but the Snipping Tool is an alternative.

Here is a link that might be useful: Snipping Tool
