Lesson 6D -Printing Layouts (and contact sheets) (pdf) (link to comment 1) (link to comment 2)
It is hard to keep up with the changes of Microsoft throughout the years. These are older tutorials from XP and Vista, but the skills are similar in today's programs.
There are many programs from which you can print from. In fact, you can print from the Photoshop Elements Organizer. However, over the years, I have learned to print straight from the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (Windows 10 uses Windows Photo Viewer). I enjoy the consistency of utilizing one program. This program is free with Windows.
Often, people request my help in printing. Since I only utilize this program, it is important for you to learn to become familiar with it if I am to answer any of your questions.
Here are two videos to help you print your layouts from home. The first is for XP (which goes along with the written tutorial) and the second is for Vista, which does not have the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, but rather a new program called the Windows Photo Gallery (also in Windows 7 & 8). Watching both might help you as I may forget tips in one that I remember in the other.
If you are a Mac or Linux user, I apologize, but this tutorial is not for you.
When you have finished reading and viewing the videos, play around with the program on your computer. Can you print in both letter size and 4 x 6 photo size with this program? Please let me know of your success by comment, whether it is this program or another that you would like to share.
Have you created a second layout yet? If so, have you shared it with me? I would love to see your most recent layout.
One of the best ways to learn is to share your layout with others and to allow them to tell you what needs fixing. This is how I learned to scrapbook. I remember sharing one of my first layouts and someone pointed out to me that it would look better with drop shadows. Then they told me where to find the drop shadows. Wow! What a difference such a small thing makes!
We can work together to ensure that you are utilizing everything you have learned!

Just as pieces stitched together in a quilt warm our bodies, scrapbooks bind together memories to warm our hearts. Author Unknown
I have been trying to learn to use PSE for six months off and on. Little things I did not understand kept frustrating me. I have learned more in the last hour in your tutorial than the last six months.
Hummie, you really have a gift of teaching. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
