Using Different Papers with Templates
by James Duncan Davidson
What I don't like doing when I'm using different kinds of paper is remember to set things up in the printer dialog boxes. So, what I'll do is create duplicates of my favorite templates and set them up for each paper, including the print driver settings as well as the ICC profile to use for the particular paper I'm using. For example, here's a screen shot showing a setup for printing out 2 5x7 images onto different kinds of 8.5x11 paper:
After setting these up with just the correct settings for each paper, I no longer have to think about profiles or the like. I just select some images, select the template, and hit print. Easy peasy and just the ticket when I'm in a hurry to get some quick prints out and take with me when I'm on the run to a client.
I've written a more detailed tutorial on setting up a template for two 5x7 per page printing. Have a look:
Very nice ideas thanks, thanks daniel for the tutorial too.
