Video: Desktop photo printing from the Organizer on Windows

Printing from the Organizer in Windows rather than the Editor gives you slightly different print choices. I usually print from the Editor, particularly when I want color managed prints, but if you're printing lots of different images, sometimes you may find it convenient to print directly from the Organizer. In this movie, I will concentrate on how printing from the Organizer is different than printing from the Editor. Starting in the Organizer, I can either select the photos that I want to print, or if I have a folder selected, as I do here, I can print all the photos without selecting any of them. To do that, I will go over to the Create menu, and I will choose Photo Prints, and I will choose Local printer, because I want to print these photos to my local desktop inkjet printer.

Desktop photo printing from the Organizer on Windows

Printing from the Organizer in Windows rather than the Editor gives you slightly different print choices. I usually print from the Editor, particularly when I want color managed prints, but if you're printing lots of different images, sometimes you may find it convenient to print directly from the Organizer. In this movie, I will concentrate on how printing from the Organizer is different than printing from the Editor. Starting in the Organizer, I can either select the photos that I want to print, or if I have a folder selected, as I do here, I can print all the photos without selecting any of them. To do that, I will go over to the Create menu, and I will choose Photo Prints, and I will choose Local printer, because I want to print these photos to my local desktop inkjet printer.

Yes, I want to print all of the displayed photos, so I will click Yes, and that opens the Prints dialog box. Right away, you will see a difference between this dialog box, and the Prints dialog box starting from the Editor, and that is that if you've selected multiple photos to print, the print preview here displays more than one photo on the paper initially. By default, the Organizer prints as many different photos on a page as will fit there. You do have the option to print only one photo per page. Here's what to do if that's what you want.

Come down to the More Options button, and click there, and in the More Options dialog box, go to the Layout section, and check One Photo Per Page. And then click Apply, and OK, and back in the Prints dialog box, the print preview is now displaying only one of the four photos on this first page. If I click through the other pages using the arrows underneath the photo, you can see that I'm going to get one photo per page. But there's another difference between printing from the Organizer, and printing from the Editor, and that is that when you're printing from the Organizer, as I am here, you can't change the position of your photos on the paper.

So, when there is a single image like this, it will always print in the center of the paper. You don't have the option to uncenter it like you do when you're printing from the Editor, as I showed you in the last movie. Most of the other steps that you'll go through, those in the column on the right, are the same whether you're printing from the Organizer, or the Editor, so I am not going to spend a lot of time on those. I will leave everything here at its defaults, and I'm going to come down to the More Options button again to show you one more difference between printing from the Organizer, and the Editor on Windows.

In the More Options dialog box, I will click on Color Management, and notice that there are fewer controls in the Color Management section this time than there were in the preceding movie, when I showed you how to print from the Editor, and work with the Color Management controls there. If you are going to print from the Organizer, and you do want to color manage, you can choose your printer profiles from this menu if you have printer profiles installed, but you can't set the rendering intent, and you can't choose whether to have Elements, or your printer do your color management for you. So, if you are following the color management workflow that I set out at the beginning of this chapter, I suggest you start your printing from the Editor, rather than the Organizer on Windows.

I am going to click OK here to go back to the Print dialog box, and to print these four images, starting in the Organizer, all I would have to do is click Print.
