I have supplied some pictures of an event on fifteen A3 sheets of proper inkjet paper.

I save the fifteen pages as a 'session' mainly in case my printer ceased up and I needed to re-start.

I could have file numbered each frame but that would have made it look as if I was soliciting orders.

The event organiser tells me that she will be asking for some frames to be reprinted - but how does she tell me which ones she means without giving me back the originals.

If I could replicate the fifteen sheets on fifteen A4's I could print those up on plain paper and she could mark them up. Or I could then photograph the fifteen A4 sheets and put them on a web folder and we could talk through the order on the phone.

Snag is if I simply alter the paper size in Qimage it will keep my prints the same size - on thirty sheets of paper.

Can anyone come up with a way that would work, please?

First of all, Click File, and Open Automated Job Log.
Now Find the job either by date or by batch (how many prints at a queue), or name, or any other way to search.

OPEN.... and it is all restored.

Once they are all in the queue, you can select all, and resize to contact size.

I have to go to lunch and will be out for a few hours... if you need a video, let me know.

PS In CUSTOM, you have Contact sheet with info

Thanks Fred,

Won't your A4 sheets end up with the prints in different positions to where they were on the A3's ?

Your A4 is smaller and you want the prints smaller. Don't care about location now. You want the prints plus the info so the customer can select which ones to be redone.
Then reset the original job, and take out what you do not want to print.
Done this many times. Easy Peasy

Isn't that the name of the game?  Wink
A couple of ideas.
Use print to file for each the pages and re-print fitted onto A4 pages.
Or
Print to a pdf with the A3 paper size.
Reprint the A3 pdf to a new pdf with A4 paper & fit to margins set.
The advantage of a pdf is that you can e-mail it and the recipient can easily open and print it.

I use Tracker software PDF Xchange Lite which is free to non-commercial users, you'd have to pay. However PDF Creator is free to anyone as it's Open Source.

It would be much easier to give the images on the A3 page a reference number  Roll Eyes
