I just left the HP help on-line, could not figure out how to use the site, so I'm turning to you guys.

I have a HP PhotoSmart 7160 printer, my OP is Windows 7.  I'm trying to print a collage of different photos, of different sizes, on one sheet 8x10 paper.

I can't seem to find a way to do same, it seems to me that several years ago i did do it, but at 87 years old it's hard to remember.

Is there any help out there??

Thanks

UncleMarine

The only way I can think of to do this is to use a photo editor to create the collage and then print it.

Thanks for your reply. I know that I did not make the collage the way that you suggest, and I did not use any additional software.

By any chance did the printer come with HP Photosmart Essential software in the bundle of software to install your printer? That could be the photo editor that allows you to create your collage you created before. Other than that I don't know of another way without more information about the process you did before.

Hi,

 

It is possible to do something like this in Word, although it is  not the way I would do it - too much like hard work !

 

Insert your first picture ( Insert / Picture / From file - or wherever ). Then, using the handles around your image, set the size and orientation to suit your needs. Repeat the process for each image you want to add. then comes the weary bit. If you play around with the format options, particularly wrapping, you should be able to get images very close to each other and even superimposed.

 

As Horror_Trembles points out, this is really much easier to do in an image processing package like Serif Photoplus where you can work with multiple layers, this after all, is what packages like PhotoPlus and PhotoShop were invented for !

PS - Note to H_T - It's Serif, not Adrift !  You'll have the boys from Nottingham after you !

FWIW:  You may want to take a look at http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/cambridge/projects/autocollage/ for an easy way to create collages and then do normal printing of such images.
