Hi,
I have 24 small images.  20 landscape and 4 portrait.  I know I can set Qimage to 4 x 6 or 6 x 4, but is there a way to have the 20 landscape images landscape and the 4 portrait images, vetical on the same 13x19" page?

Thanks,

Mogur2

Qimage should be autorotating the images to best fit onto the paper. It does not really care about if the images are portrait or landscape since you are going to be cutting them out.  If you insist in a certain orientation you can right click on the image (on the right side pane) and select Set Print Rotation (Degrees) and choose the same as thumbnail on the fly out menu.

A better way is to click the little padlock icon below the preview; that locks the orientation and so that prints on the page are the same as the thumbnail. Do this before adding images to the queue.

Whether they will all fit or not will depend on which auto placement method is chosen. However, a quick bit of mental arithmetic says they wont fit: even if all horizontal, 4 rows by 6 columns of 6x4's is 24x24 somewhat larger than one 13x19 page!

Re: How can I do this?
I realize these aren't 6 x 4 size prints, but obviously, you made a size typo, so try this:
vertical page set in Qimage.
Go to Custom, and 3rd item from top, Enter number of prints per page. Insert 4 for columns, and six for rows.
That gives you 24 prints to that page.
Now click the padlock to locked as Terry said, and insert your 20 horizontal images.
Make sure crop scissors is on.
The last 4 images to be inserted would be your 4 images that you want to stay vertical. Now insert those.
You have 24 prints on that page the way you asked for it, except they are not 6 x 4 size.

Maybe something above will help??

Thanks Fred; I see 6x4 and immediately think of the standard print size rather than 6 rows and 4 columns on a page.  Roll Eyes
Mogur2 should be on his/her way now  Grin

So did I Terry. I am still not sure which way is right. 4 x 6 print size, or 4 columns and six rows.
We will have to hear from Mogur2 or 3.
