We strongly believe that efficiency is one of the most important keys in the organization, storage and retrieval of all of your digital images. Let’s take a look at how the contact sheet feature in Photoshop can help provide greater efficiencies.
The contact sheet feature is a digital version of a regular contact sheet that Photoshop can create. It takes a folder of digital images and creates thumbnails for each image, and then arranges them so they are easily viewable. This is a helpful feature when it is necessary to print of large quantities of digital files.
Creating a Contact Sheet
In Photoshop go to the File pull down menu, go to Automate, then click Contact Sheet II.
The Contact Sheet II dialog box will open. Choose the destination folder and fill in all the required fields and check the Use Filename as Caption box if you want the file names to show up on the sheet. Click Ok.
After contact sheets have been made you can save, modify them how you want and then print them out.
